Nothing like a handmade sumi brush!

 Handmade Sumi Brush

There is nothing like a handmade sumi brush by Richard Paldino. The picture above is my sumi brush made by Richard. It is a combination bristle of weasel and goat hair. I first met Richard on Facebook. He makes beautiful brushes for each individual that wants one. He expertly  carves the handle from Orange wood.  Richard asks you how you paint, which hand you use, and where do you hold the handle so he can make just the right brush for you! My brush is infused with spirit and love from it's maker and I am honored to use it.
