Japanese Brayers

Japanese Brayers
50 Durometer Rubber
Made in Taiwan to Japanese supplier's specifications

Ideal for relief printmaking, these sturdy, well-made brayers have a tough Nitrile rubber roller on a hard plastic core, held by a metal frame with a wooden handle.

These 45mm diameter rollers will roll out 5 1/2" of ink without a lap mark.

Clean with Gamsol when using traditional oil-based inks, like Gamblin. Diluted Dawn dishwashing liquid works well when cleaning up water-soluble inks, like Caligo, and water-based inks like Akua Liquid Pigment. The rollers on the brayers can be removed easily with a Phillips screwdriver for cleaning and drying.

Long exposure to UV light will cause nitrile rubber to crack, so if you won't be using them for a while, store the brayers in a box or cupboard away from the sun or florescent lights.
