BR05 – Water Brush Reservoir
A Japanese innovation which is as revolutionary to the traditional calligraphy brush as the fountain pen was to the quill in Europe. Made from polyethylene, polypropylene and nylon, the reservoir brush enables the application of liquids without the necessity of continually refreshing the tip through dipping. This ensures a more even distribution than normal brushes allow over a larger area, thus making it ideal for many brush-based conservation treatments where consistency is a requirement. The reservoir brush may be used for a number of applications, from wet-tearing (without the abrasive scratching usually associated with stylus pens) to the localised application of solvents*, deacidification agents and detergents.
*Not suitable for use with Alkenes, Alkanes or Ketones.
