Rosemary & Co travel brushes are a great addition to your studio or on-the-go toolkit. The R24 Eradicator is helpful when you need to lift out brights or soften hard edges in your watercolor painting.

The small eradicator brush is perfect for softening hard edges and lifting out brights. To use the brush, dampen slightly with clean water, then drag gently but firmly upon its long edge, while holding the brush nearly vertical. As soon as paint is removed, dab the brush several times on a paper towel to clean it and continue as needed. Rinse after 2-3 erasures, dab to remove wetness and continue.

Be careful to avoid too damp a brush, and too vigorous erasing.

Rosemary & Co travel brushes are handmade in England and include a reversible cap that protects their tips and also extends their handles to a typical brush length. We stock several styles of Rosemary travel brushes that complement each other beautifully. You can find more brushes on our brushes page.
