To rest brushes
Oh, the brush rest. It is a necessity for your art space, as you have to have some where to put down one brush while you are using another or to let all your brushes dry when you are finished painting. But there are so many styles—made out of so many materials—it can be hard to know exactly where to start.
The Wonderland-Chinese Porcelain Brush Rest is a great brush rest made of porcelain. Since it holds up to seven brushes, it can grow with you as you expand and use more and more brushes in the creation of your artworks. Additionally, the grapes painted on the porcelain in blue provide a nice contrast to the white brush and add a little tradition to the brush rest.
Blue has long been an important color in Chinese culture, and often represents immortality. With this addition, the brush rests takes on a more traditional look and will make a great addition to your art studio, whether it is in use or just serving as a decoration while you are between projects.
