This is what your brush looks like when it is scared you’ll forget to wet iti in water first before you dip it into the ink. This is what your brush looks like when it’s scared you won’t rinse it well enough in plain cool water and instead are considering using soap or hot water instead to wash the ink away. Your brush will die slowly if you use soap or hot water. And this is what your brush looks like when you leave its head submerged in water or you leave it unrinsed and full of ink and just walk away. Your brush depends on you to care its hair, to protect and defend its point by shaping it after its rinsed.
