Brush Parts

Most ceramic brushes have of four parts--

1) TIP - the very end of the brush hairs
2) RESERVOIR -the hairs that hold a reserve of color
3) FERRULE- the metal part
4) HANDLE -usuall made of wood, acrylic,or bamboo

The tip and reservoir are probably the most important parts of any brush, but the handle should be evenly weighted to achieve a well balanced brush stroke.
