JPP Noribake: paste brush
Quality Japanese paper deserves a quality brush! Here's what makes ours a winner:
Undyed goat hair - soft, very absorbent, long lasting.
Well secured between two paper layers made from washi and nylon; bound with synthetic string. No loose hairs or rusty metal ferrules.
Natural hair ends are intact NOT cut creating a lovely taper when wet. No streaks on the page; no "bushy" ends after just a few uses.
Japanese Cypress handle - warp and rot resistant. Custom size with shorter handle for better control and fit in your hand.
While "Noribake" means paste brush, it also works wonderfully with wet media such as inks, dyes and watercolour. Code11563
Yamato Glue Stick
We can't say enough good things about these
glue sticks: we use them ourselves in-house all the time. Not
only are they non-toxic, scent-free and made of recycled plastic,
but they're a pleasure to use: they don't gum up and dry out
the way so many others do. Try them and see why we love them! Code CSS8006
Fueki Repositionable Glue Stick
Ever have your own note you want to be
able to stick again and again? Or working on a layout project?
Use a little of this, and your piece of paper will stick in place
but can be removed and moved over and over. Never buy a commercial
sticky note again! Made from 100% corn starch, non-formalin. Code 12820
Pin Clip - Box of 50
These ingenious little devices are well named, with a pin on the back and a clip on the front. While best used on cloth or bulletin boards, they can be used even on most walls and doors as well.
