  • This stylus is great for sketching and writing or as a general navigation tool.
  • Grasp Sensu near the nib section and pull it out of the protective cap. You will reveal the capacitive bristles of the artist brush. Insert the rubber stylus into the cap and the cap becomes a handle for your brush.

Product Description

The Sensu Brush is the ultimate tool for digital artists. It delivers an authentic painting experience on your tablet or smartphone. The Sensu portable artist brush & stylus works great for capacitive touchscreens like iPad iPhone Kindle Fire Google Nexus S and other devices. This 2-in-one tool truly shines when used with your favorite drawing and painting apps such as ArtRage Sketchbook Pro Paper by Studio 53 Procreate Auryn Ink and SketchTime. Sensu is Two Very Useful Tools in One. The rubber stylus is exposed when the brush is closed. This stylus is great for sketching and writing or as a general navigation tool. Grasp Sensu near the nib section and pull it out of the protective cap. You will reveal the capacitive bristles of the artist brush. Insert the rubber stylus into the cap and the cap becomes a handle for your brush. (NOT for use with real acrylic oil watercolor or any other wet media. Keep clean and dry.)

Feel is great and high quality build.

I love this paint brush/stylus...I have several apps on my iPad that take advantage of a paint brush to create works of art.
Valerie S. Stanton
The stylus worked, but had to press hard against the screen.

Ever since I got my iPad and began to purchase painting and drawing apps, I have searched for a stylus that would do justice to the truly realistic apps like ArtRage. I have purchased styluses from just about every maker in the world, some, like the Bamboo stylus (I own 2) were well worth the price and excellent products. Others, like the Ten One design's Pogo Sketch Pro (2) were the objects of my finest hopes and gave me my deepest disappointments. Finally, the Griffins and the Boxwaves and the elagos (and the truly bizarre elago ball) were just functional, barely and, though some, like the elago ball, seemed designed to address the shortcomings apparent in the the other styluses (styli?), but always fell short of the mark.
My most bitter disappointment was the PenGo BrushPen. When I heard rumors of its development I was excited by the idea: there was no law that said that a capacitive stylus had to be a little rubber nub. And the PenGo brush seemed to have all that was needed to replicate the action of a brush on canvas. The reality was that the bristles on the brush in the PenGo didn't feel like a brush so much as a mushy rubber nib and the bristles continually separated from the rest of the brush because the were pushed back by the action of putting the cap on the pen.
And so it was with a mixture of excitement and trepidation that I plunked my forty bucks down for the Princeton Art & Brush Sensu Capacitive Artist Brush. From the look of it there was great promise.
The brush is in two parts. One an empty metal cover that hides e brush tip and serves as the body of the traditional nib ended metal tube that makes up most of the styli in the world.

I am really torn with this review.

I received this brush for Christmas and it was a revelation. Even though I have virtually no real-life painting experience, using the brush was so natural and easy. Far better than any stylus I've ever used. Unlike some of the reviews here, just the lightest of touches would create exactly what I wanted. I already owned several good painting apps but feeling fully inspired I purchased the recommended ProCreate and never looked back.

It was the perfect marriage of tools and software....for about 2 weeks.

After using for the brush for up to an hour or so per day for those 2 weeks it became completely unresponsive without using extreme force. You could see that the bristles were changing colors from top to bottom as though some sort of capacative coating was being worn off. Searching the web I was able to find at least one user with a similar experience. My emails to the company were never responded to.

On the day I got it this was a 5+ star product. After a couple of weeks it became a 1. I'm going to split the difference with a 3 and hope that maybe I just got a bum brush.

Edit: I've added a couple of photos to the gallery to show the difference between a brand new brush and the brush that stopped working.

At first my son who is an artist loved this brush. Although quite expensive he takes great care of all his art things and I knew it was a great buy. We bought it 5 weeks ago though and he only used it about 7-8 times and today when I tried to use it with the great app "procreate" on my ipad "3" it wouldn't always respond. I thought it maybe a special setting in the app but when I asked him to try (on his ipad mini then on an ipad "4") we both noticed that if he tried to write a word some letters would be missing, unless he pushed on it a lot. Since he uses this brush to virtually paint with it, he wants to use a light touch and we are very disappointed with its quality.
Not sure how to get in touch with the manufacturer since it's just over a month and Amazon won't take it back. Hopefully they will read this review and contact us so we can get it fixed or exchanged. Will update if this happens.

I love the feel of the Sensu brush. What a great idea. I think it's better than the Nomad brush. My Sensu brush has been working perfectly for the past 6 months. Alas, yesterday, suddenly, I have to press down hard on my ipad for it to work. Very disappointing. Reading the other reviews, I guess the Sensu brush doesn't last long. Sensu needs to work it out so the brush lasts at least 2 years. Until they work it out, I'll continue on my journey to find the perfect stylus brush that I can use for a longer time than 6 months.

My wife bought this, and used the brush one day. She went to use it the next day and it just stopped working. Not sure why, but it doesn't respond on her Kindle Fire HD any more. Totally wish we could get our money back. DO NOT BUY! Not at all worth the price.

I really love this brush. Everything about it is made with care--the meticulous taper and stiffness of the bristles, the weight, the length of the handle (with the cap extended). You can tell the people who designed the Sensu are artists who know how to use a brush. As far as design goes, it's the best paintbrush stylus on the market compared to the PenGo and the Nomad.

Unfortunately, sometimes artists aren't the most technically adept.

Whatever this "infused hair technology" the manufacturers are using isn't working. I've had my Sensu since Feb 26, 2013 and it's already losing its capacitive ability. I've used it for about 2 hours a day since I've had it--not unreasonable for a digital painting. Now, it skips brushstrokes and I have to press harder on the screen to get it to work.

I'm so sad about this, too, because I LOVE the design. I've contacted their support, as they do have a 90-day guarantee. I'd be happy if I could just find a way to restore the capacitive ability. I guess if nothing else, it's still a brush...I could use it to do actual watercolor paintings, but that's not what I paid $40 for. Heck, a real red sable brush would be cheaper than that!

I hope the manufacturers take note of these reviews and work on the issue for the next version. I think if they could alternate some capacitive thread in with the hair of the brush, it would solve the problem. As it is, in another week or so it's going to be useless.
