Basic knowledge and techniques of Chinese brushes

http://www.art-virtue.com/principles/p1-brush.htm

To use extra fine brushes, the selection of Xuan paper and grinding quality ink sticks are mutually related to the functionalities of different brushes, as well as the touches (pressure, lifting and pressing, rotation, turning, shivering, and the combined movements) we apply with the brush tips.

Multi-Purpose Chinese Calligraphy Brushes (Part 1)

Wednesday, November 9th, 2011

chines painting supplies http://cgi.ebay.com/10-CHINESE-CALLIGRAPHY-WATER-COLOR-BRUSH-/390278627445?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item5ade6b4075

These brushes made by Mr. Li Gang in China meet the criterion of good brushes – pointy, even, round, and resilient ( 尖齊圓健 ). These are the brushes I personally use for YouTube videos, teaching, and public events since 2007.

Mr. Robert Bo sold them at U.S. $1 each as of 2007-2008. The new imports (available in Janauary 2011) will be slightly higher in prices with more choices of products made by Li Gang.

The brush maker Mr. Li Gang ( 李剛 or 李刚 ) is a relative of the famous brush maker Zou Jielong ( 鄒節龍 or 邹节龙 ) whose reputation is highly esteemed in China. Their brushes share some similarities. (In China, many people have the same names as 李刚. So please don’t confused.)

I provide the info and writing videos as educational resources to acquire supplies and tools for Chinese calligraphy and painting.

Inquiry or direct order: Robert Bo (972) 758-7238 in Dallas, Texas and mention Li Gang’s brushes.

Due to Robert’s teapot business

calling is the most convenient and fastest way to reach him. Robert will not know how to answer very specific technical questions regarding brushes.

There are over 1,000 items not listed on Robert’s forbiddencity2008 e-Bay store. The best way to look for unlisted items, arrange international shipping, or purchase wholesale quantities is to call Robert between 12 – 8 PM, daily, Texas time.

Joshua Hough’s Disclaimer:
1. I do not guarantee the quality of each individual brush (brushes are all hand made “individually” – no productions by machines), nor the price changes and availability. Many Chinese schools in the U.S. have ordered large quantities of these inexpensive and quality brushes, so I am not responding to any availability issues.
2. I do not sell any of those brushes from my inventory.
3. I do not take commissions in any form.

I provide the information in this video solely for practitioners of Chinese calligraphy and painting to compare the selection and shopping of the supplies and tools.
