Using Better Quality Brushes With Alcohol Ink

I’ve been avoiding using some of my better watercolor brushes with alcohol ink because I think they’ll get wrecked as the alcohol damages the hairs in the ferule. But, since I’m not painting watercolor but exclusively using the inks, I thought I’d do an experiment using better quality brushes for a large smooth face of a wave for the Water class.

      I do. I recently bought some very nice brushes from Rosemary and Company that are Anna Mason’s recommendations. They are spotters so they are really fat at the base with a fine tip. They are smaller than I thought when I bought the set but they work great for detail work with alcohol inks. The bigger brushes are very nice in the right place. Just need to take care of those brushes.
