Chinese calligraphy lessons: 12. Brush pens

Here I talk about brush pens, their merits, and deficiencies compared to normal brushes. Brush pens are basically brushes with ink reservoirs and caps.

    I take it you’ve used this brush pen before. Perhaps you got a better sample than me, but I doubt it. The only thing I imagine could vary is how evenly the bristles spread. A change of paper or ink will not change that.
