I bought these with my Derwent Inktense Pencils. The pencils need water to turn permanent into ink. I color with the pencils, and then apply the water. The waterbrush is almost like using a pencil. I can control where I want the water to go. This is very important in keeping the water in one area. You can buy different size waterbrushes if you want a bigger or smaller tip.

I like to use this pen not with watercolor, but with ink. I will usually thin my ink with water to get a range of value out of the pen. As a sketching tool, the ink-filled brush pen is an absolute jewel.

MY ONLY WARNING regards the kind of ink you fill the pen with. I used Higgins for my first pen and that was a huge mistake. I believe the kind of Higgins ink I used was lacquer or shellac based so it eventually choked the pen. I tried out PH Martin's Bombay Black non-clogging ink and that has worked without a hitch. The bristle does eventually lose its wonderfully fine tip, but just buy a new pen and keep the older one for fill work.

This is a wonderful product that I try to tell as many people about as possible.

Definitely the best little travel item I've found in awhile! I carry this water filled brush with a 4x6 sketchbook and a couple of watercolor crayons, and can record impressions of a scene quickly. Best, they all fit into my purse easily. I have two sizes--they're great!

If this is the only water brush you can get, then it is better than no water brush at all. It is hard to squeeze the barrel and the tips of the brush wear out very quickly. The Pentel is superior in every way.

These are my favorite water brush pens on the market, and I have several of these and other brands as well (some I fill colored inks). The reason I like this particular brand is that they have the best flow control compared to other brush pens like the Pentel Aquash or Koi. The water reservoir has a very small opening so that water does not inadvertently flood the brush. With others, I am continually having to blot excess water off the tip with a paper towel. The con though is that this great control has a price - the small opening in the reservoir means you cannot hold it under a water tap to refill. The instructions say to squeeze it in a water glass and suck up the water. This is not very satisfactory because it will only half fill the reservoir at best. What I use (as many others do) is a little 5 ml blunt nose plastic syringe. I bought mine at Amazon but Goulet Pen also carries these and has a video on their use and how to store the blunt needle in the plunger cavity for easy carry.
An odd quirk that is confusing is that some vendors like Amazon list these as Yasumoto Niji whereas in many others list them as Kuretake Niji. They all have Kuretake stamped on the side so they are apparently the same brush pen.

I have this brush in small only to work with watercolor pencils. Because these pencils require so little water to solubilize, this brush size is perfect. My only complaint is that water seems to run all the time, I don't have to squeeze it ever. However, wiping it on a paper towel while using it works fine and the brush does not accumulate color so a quick wipe is all you need before moving on to the next color. It's terrific for painting outdoors or anywhere that bringing along traditional brushes and cups of water would be cumbersome.

I highly recommend these in all sizes! As I carry watercolor crayons and use them almost exclusively in my artwork these brushes are perfect for me. These brushes can be refilled from any water source, whether it be from the kiddie pool, the hose or that water bottle we all find ourselves schlepping most days. They allow excellent control and awesome portablility. You can take them anywhere, be it the beach or a hike to the top of Cadillac Mountain to see the sunrise over Bar Habor, Maine and capture the beautiful morning colors. You just clear the tip with a simple squeeze of water and a blot on the back of your hand or a clean cloth (depending on what you have available). No more dirty water spilling all over from trying to clean all the paint out your brushheads. I feel you also have more control over the amount of water you work with too. If you want more water, just squeeze the brush. I did notice that with dark colors like black and brown,the bristles did become permanently stained, but that has not effected projects with any castoff.

I have several different brands of waterbrushes, but I keep reaching for this one again and again. The water flow is nice and even, and comes out very slowly--which is exactly what I want for use with Inktense watercolor pencils. The tip is very easy to control--especially when working in very small areas where you need a lot of control.
In my photos, I printed digital art onto watercolor paper, lay down pencils strokes, and then go over them with this brush. Works beautifully--so much so that my 12 year old daughter also prefers this brush. So I'm ordering another one today:)
