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.) Let your imagination wander and have limitless creative possibilities with this incredible digital art and writing tool.

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.
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. The beauty of the pen comes when this metal shell is removed, turned and placed over the metal nib, elongating a 4 inch stylus to one of about 7 inches. At the end of this reconfigured tool is the Holy Grail, the end of my quest, the culmination of my years long search: a capacitive brush that delivers a real life paint brush feel. The Sensu brush stylus is the best, bar none, the best artistic stylus I have ever had in my hands. The brush looks like any normal tapered end paint brush and feels much the same as well, but it is firmer and holds together in a way that a brush never would.
Using it is a dream come true. ArtRage is an app that gives an incredible degree of control over the action of the tools and the Sensu brush takes advantage of the all of them, providing a rich and tactilely gratifying experience and an unprecedented degree of artistic control.
Clearly lots of great digital art has been created using the traditional nib stylus. Indeed, the smooth, graceful feel of the Bamboo stylus the best there is (or was - see below) for creating art on a capacitive screen. But the Sensu stylus is a game changer. By my lights, for it provides the best of both worlds a nib with the smooth hitch free flow of the Bamboo stylus and the addition of this brush doubles the potential of the tool.
Of course there are things to be wished for. This is supposed to be a mobile tool and the lack of a cover for the nib makes me worry about it becoming fowled with dust and grit is a pocket or bag, plus the sleek design of the tool makes it a good candidate for slipping out of a pocket or bag, so a clip of some sort and a cover for the nib, though they would gum up the sex appeal of the tool, are high on the wish list in updates. Also,neither the nib or the brush give the impression of being replaceable and, 40 bucks a pop, the prospect of simply discarding the used tools may make me less likely to use the tool as much as I would like, so, again, on the update I would like to seem replacement parts a way to use them.
Of course I do not know how long the brush will last. I have already purchased a second one. I will post an update if there is news there.
But at the end of the day, if you, like me, have yearned for a more authentic experience in sophisticated paint and draw apps this is your tool
I was looking for something that had pressure sensitivity and a fine tip - I did not look at this close enough to realize it was a basic stylus with a paintbrush as well. The paintbrush is really kind of useless, it works just the same as the other end of the stylus with no difference; although if you liked the way it drags across the screen better then I suppose it would be a positive for you.
If you're looking for a basic stylus that's a little more weighty this would be really nice. But if you're looking for a stylus to use with procreate to draw detailed pieces or paint - this is not it. Ended up buying the Adonit Pixel, we'll see how well it goes.
There is a paint brush - it has ok sensitivity/little lag but not as much lag as the rubber end.
Smooth bullet shape (my last stylus was a pen too, so it had this annoying button on the side that would be in the way (which is why I got this stylus)
Nice finish (chrome-like)
Light weight and easy to hold
When extended for the paintbrush use, it is the length of a paintbrush - so it feels like the correct balance of weight
Even if you are extra cautious capping the brush end, the bristles will bend/separate. Two of my bristles went astray after just a day of owning it - I think they will all fall out eventually or become so separated you can't use it.
I have a hard time getting the rubber tip to actually write/draw where I want it to, there seems to be a lag of some sort that my other stylus did not have
Poor value - for the amount of money we spent, I wish it would write/drawn when I want it to without the lag - it ruins the drawing a lot of times and other times, it's just plain annoying. For $39.99 it should work better then the 2 for $2 one with the pen I have, but it doesn't.
It's "o.k." But when I am drawing something and I have to use my finger to fix something, I should not have paid nearly $40 for the product. Bottom line - you could buy a better stylus cheaper. Would it have paint brush, probably not, but then again, could you just use a real paint brush that you already own? I have considered returning it and still might.

BUT do be really careful about where you buy this. I ordered mine from the Amazon.co.uk supplier in the USA, but I didn't read the small print! I had to pay an additional £16.42 for customs and handling in the UK, and that is not refundable. Somehow I was expecting that purchasing through the UK company took care of that. It makes the European sources much more competitive.
The brush is wonderful and I love using this, especially with Procreate, a great app for artistic creations.
The product arrived the very next day, having only ordered it around 3pm. The service I receive from Amazon and their associated companies have always been the best, which is one of the main reasons I continue to buy from them.
It feels so good in the hand and has all the feel of working with physical media and not an electronic surface.
Highly recommended and great fun to use.
Very disappointed compared to when i first received it
