We cannot stress enough how crucial the right brush is for Urushi painting! All ‘authentic’ Urushi brushes are made with animal hair, like this one made of sheep hair. Professional Urushi artists are known for using brushes valued at more than $500 US a piece!
Fine-Point Urushi Brush Brush: 15mm/0.59 inch, Handle:175 mm/6.88 inch, Material: Raccoon dog or Horse
Extra-fine Urushi Kintsugi/Makie Brush Brush: 10mm / Handle:150 mm/ Brush Axis: 2.5mm/ Material: Japanese mink
-AFTER USE- Be sure to wash the brush thoroughly with turpentine oil or thinner (water won't work for Urushi) then applying a bit of vegetable oil, such as seed oil, will help!

Don't know why I didn't try this brush before, what a difference! It holds much more lacquer and the bristles are so soft the lacquer flows much more smoothly and makes the work go faster and much easier.

I got a little windfall and bought many japanese craft supplies with the money.
This is among my absolute favorite purchases. You can almost say I have a fetish about it. When friends come to visit I show it to them! : )
Excellent quality brush, nice hard tip, so great to work with in sumi e amongst other things.
Great seller. I may buy other brushes to give as gifts as they reflect my obsession with good quality and small detail.
