4. Brushes

Typically use hake brushes for broad washes and thoryu (?), a natural hair brush that comes to a point, for fine lines. Set your brushes in water about 1 hour before using (some artists let them sit overnight) This allows the brush to fully absorb the water, "coming alive" and "broadening out." Don't force the brush when it's not ready or you can damage and lose the hair.
