Chinese Calligraphy Brushes


You might remember my post a while back agonizing whether or not to spend $200 for this treasure...



Well, sometimes lightening strikes twice but not exactly the same way.


I scored these Chinese Calligraphy brushes last week!

Just so you know I believe the top collection(the one you didn't get) is oil paint brushes. The collection you did score are bamboo brushes used for ink wash painting. One of my favorite type of painting. When I was at SDSU as an Art major I took a class where we learned ink wash painting with chinese bamboo brushes. Loved it. I love all types of paintbrushes but the bamboo brushes are unique and a treasure to me.

I just discovered your lovely blog and have signed up as a follower. I've just put the finished touches on my new blog ‘Coastal Style’ and have added you to my blogroll. I had a lot of fun putting it together so maybe you would like to check it out if you have a spare minute.

It will have lots of inspiration on beach houses, resortwear, summer food, travel and anything ‘beachy’.
