What is Brusho?
BRUSHO is a form of transparent watercolour available in an extensive range of exciting colours, supplied in small drums

containing dry, crystalline powder. They mix instantly with cold water to produce a painting medium that is renowned

for its versatility. The colours lend themselves ideally for the production of a variety of hues, tints and shades by mixing,

dilution or concentration, or by the superimposition of washes.

Brusho is unique and many of the effects can be achieved in no other way. Even after many years of Brusho painting, new

possibilities will still be found for this highly interesting product.

Who uses Brusho

Many artists renowned in their own field use Brusho. It is used at all levels, by primary schoolchildren, professional

artists, teachers and lecturers in art and craft. Some examples of these and people who have kindly contributed in

the preparation of some of the techniques are: Stan Griffiths (Technique for using Brusho on wood).
