Water brushes are most commonly used with water paints on paper but recently we've been seeing folks use them for calligraphy and other fine work on silks and cottons. These brushes work well with thin dyes and paints like Dye-na-flow, most silk paints, and marbling inks, but they also perform well with thinned paints like the Lumiere and Neopaque line.
Jacquard has an excellent example up on their Facebook page of a wonderful artist, Anne Elser, using a water brush and thinned Neopaque to brush pinstripes onto denim. Another fun idea is filling the brush with water and using it to blend color put down with Derwent's pencils and blocks!
The pen has a round, brush tip so it looks and feels like a sumi brush. It has durable nylon bristles that keep their shape after use. Fill with your choice of paint, dye, or water, squeeze the pen and liquid is forced into the bristles. Harder pressure releases more liquid.
Like all brushes, be sure to clean well when using with dyes and paints! The pen breaks down into several pieces for easy cleaning but can be very difficult to clean up if it's been neglected.
