The Snowy Mountain paint brush is an excellent choice for artists who delight in painting landscapes and animals. The white tip of this mixed hair brush is complemented by a light-toned, wooden handle, which spots the printed Chinese characters, Yan Shan Ji Xue, a poetic description of a snow-laden mountain.

Boosting a flexible, absorbent and resilient tip, the Snowy Mountain brush is suitable for calligraphers specializing in the Xing Shu and Cao Shu scripts. It is especially well-suited for writing large scripts because its tip is more robust than those of brushes of the same size.

The tip of this mixed hair brush consists of a 30% goat hair exterior surrounding a 70% weasel hair core. The weasel hair used in the tip of the Snowy Mountain brush is sourced from Northeast China, a region long-known for producing the country's best weasel hair in terms of manufacturing method and raw material.

As the Chinese characters, Lang Hao, are used to refer to both weasel and wolf hair, brush tips that are made of weasel hair are often wrongly labeled as being made of wolf hair. While wolf hair brushes do exist, they tend to cost a lot and are available only in limited quantities. We stock one genuine wolf hair brush, the Roaring Wolf brush, in our webshop.
