Item details

Paint Brushes from nature!

Yes, these super cool little natural paint brushes are perfect for artists of all ages and for anyone wanting to use a unique all natural tool.

They are perfect for stenciling. Tips can be trimmed with regular scissors for a custom brush or use as is.


Pick how many all natural Hala (Hawaiian) paint brushes you want.

They are not exactly as pictured in these photos & if you need more, please contact me.

They have all been surf tumbled so you know that they are very very durable!

I used Hawaiian Paint Brushes when I taught Kindergarten. All children love these primitive little brushes. They vary in size from 1 1/2" to 3" in length.


They are from the female hala (Hawaiian) or pandanus also known as the screw pine. See the photos of several trees I saw in West Hawaii.


Here's some great information from www.native plants.hawaii.edu
"The dried keys (phalanges, drupes, fruits) were also used as brushes to apply dyes for painting, stenciling designs, and perfuming kapa.

The mature keys, often after falling from the female tree, were cleaned of nay remaining pulp by combing through the fibers with thin, pointed instruments such as bamboo (ʻohe), and the ends of the fibers cut off evenly. The hard upper end of the key served as a handle for the brush."

As always, thank you for visiting TheWhatNaught.etsy.com

I recently had the opportunity to play with Hala brushes at a workshop for early educators and can't wait for my 4 & 5 year olds to enjoy them as much as I did! Customer service and communication is top notch, shipping is fast, and packaged arrived as promise. looking forward to shopping TheWhatNaught more often!

I cannot tell you how much these are adored by my preschool artists! And I love them, too! They're sturdy and they handle the paint just right (not too much soaking up, not too little.) I even give them away as little treasures sometimes! LOVE
