FP65. Niji Waterbrush Med (12mm)
FP65. Niji / Yaustomo Waterbrush, Medium 12mm

We often complain that they don't make things like they
used to. Too often an item that was great is no longer as fine a tool or material, or manufacturers simply stop making a good product. However, sometimes new tools come along that exceed our expectations, like the Niji Waterbrush. It is a high-quality waterbrush that can be filled with your choice of liquid media.
