Portable Artist Brush and Stylus for Touchscreen Devices
All About Sensu
The Sensu brush was developed out of a desire to have an authentic brush to use with drawing and painting apps on iPhone and iPad. Of course, Sensu works well on other capacitive screens they've tested. Over the years, they've developed a lot of artist brushes and have learned tons from some of the best brush makers in the world - careful craftsmen who understand the subtle properties of hair taper, flexibility, and strength. They've learned to build brushes that yield perfectly to different paint mediums and various surfaces.
Patent-pending Hair Technology
In their search for the right conductive hair, they tested various metal and metallic fibers. None had the true feel of a real artist brush. An old brush-making friend in Japan introduced them to a brand new hair technology being developed for the cosmetic industry. Traditional synthetic brush hair was being infused with conductive properties to help fine powder release from make-up brushes as they came in contact with skin. This synthetic hair could be made in the diameters and tapers we required for Sensu to feel just right.
Like your iPad, the Sensu brush is truly portable. The protective cap becomes the handle for the brush when in use. When you're done painting, simply insert the brush tip into the handle chamber and push closed. The brush is now safe for travel and a rubber stylus nib is exposed that can be used for other navigation.
Sensu is Two Very Useful Tools in One
The rubber stylus is exposed when the brush is closed. This stylus is great for sketching and writing or as a general navigation tool. Grasp Sensu near the nib section and pull it out of the protective cap. You will reveal the capacitive bristles of the artist brush. Insert the rubber stylus into the cap and the cap becomes a handle for your brush.

Care and Feeding
It is pretty easy to keep Sensu happy.
Be careful replacing the brush in its protective cap.
Don't use real acrylic or oil paints with it.
Same goes for solvents, don't use them.
If you do bend a bristle, carefully remove it with tweezers
