These Chinese water brush pens, also known as fountain brush pens, have a piston filler and Chinese Goat Wool brush tip. The pen can be filled with water and used to paint with watercolours in the traditional way but without the need to continually dip your brush in a container of water. Water Brush Pens can also be filled with fountain pen ink or drawing ink and used to paint directly or used for traditional Chinese and Japanese calligraphy.
The ink or water flows through the brush allowing you to paint or do calligraphy for web design, without needing to constantly dip your brush in ink or water. You dip the brush in fountain pen ink or water and turn the cap to fill the reservoir just like a fountain pen.
Toucan fountain pen inks have a wide range of colours available, can be mixed together to make new colours and are ideal for use in brush pens. Blackstone Inks also work well and are a lot darker than the Toucan inks. Both inks are non toxic, perfectly safe and both wash out easily. Most fountain pen inks are safe to use in these brush pens but heavily saturated and permanent inks may be difficult to clean out. Heavily pigmented inks may block the brushes.
They are much easier to clean the normal brushes. Fill the reservoir with water and turn the cap to drive the piston down to force water through the brush. Blackstone Pen Flush will hurry things along and help remove every trace of ink.
