    Your technique is wrong, the leaves of bamboo sould be long, and sharp pointed. And the joints of bamboo fails so much..

    @x3loveyuki Yes, try this: at first you can load water->light ink and dark ink; paint until it exhausts, then just add water to paint to the brush to complete the paiting. Thanks!

    @aliedesuacido …
    @aliedesuacido There is a remedy for it: try to use peach sap glue water to make it pointed and let it dry. After several days open the brush with water. This may not help if the brush is too old and lost too much bristle. Are you talking about calligraphy or painting? For Calligraphy, there is not much we can do about it. But any brush should be useful for painting, my suggestions: 1) Use it for other purpose like landscape painting. 2) Trim it to make it a smaller brush for drawing lines.

    I only have one brush. It’s long, has god long hairs, and the hairs is (in my oppinion) rather soft. Should I use another brush for painting bamboo, and if so: where can I get one?

    @cometmoon Yes, but a good wolf (stiff) hair brush might help a little bit in painting bamboo.
