Brushes used by various artists for inside painting of bottles

There were lots of questions in Oakland (Bay Area Snuff Bottle Collectors Group) and Boston (International Chinese Snuff Bottle Society Convention) about brushes used to paint bottles when I did a presentation of an abbreviated version of the DVD. With the help of Li Shouxun, we have put together a description of various brushes and what they are used for in painting. Also I have added some additional information from painter Lu Jianguang. These urls are as follows:

Please enjoy these pictures and additional information. If there are questions or suggestions that will help improve this web site, please let me know. I believe the future of this inside-painted art form depends on a new generation of collectors who admire modern bottles.
