The mizu-bake (Japanese water brush) is a brush made for painting water onto large surfaces, as opposed to brushes for paint or paste/glue. In the bindery, the mizu-bake is used for a variety of binding and conservation uses, and particularly useful when working with delicate Japanese papers and tissues.
