Hake brushes are versatile oriental brushes that are especially suited for thin media. This brush has very wide, flat bristles that are ideal for applying media over large areas, for wash, sizing, gluing and more. While this brush is also good for watercolor and oil, it is particularly well-suited for the ceramic arts. The flat handle and the select soft hair give you excellent brush control. It's an indispensable tool when used on delicate and absorbent Oriental papers or for art and craft projects.
