An indispensable felting tool, a ball brause or ball brauser speeds up the felting process. A water sprinkler like this makes wetting out wool and fibre layouts a breeze. Easy to use, the ball brause has fine holes in the spout head for even distribution of your felting solution. Easy to use, the pump has a capacity of around 200ml. They measure around about 9 cm in diameter and 18 cm in height. Also available in dark pink and yellow.
To use, squeeze the bulb of the ball brause to expel any air. While still compressing the bulb, place the spout in your felting solution. Releasing pressure on the ball allow drawing up of the liquid. Removing the sprinkler and squeezing the bulb, results in a fine shower of droplets over your work. Numerous holes in the head allow for the even distribution of water or soap solution onto your work. For large pieces of work, having a ball brause in each hand speeds up the process of wetting out. This felting tool is especially handy when working on big projects and comfortable to use over long periods of time.
Care of your Ball Brause
Containing no harmful substances and made from quality PVC, the sprinkler can withstand heavy use. The bulb will detach from the metal spout for easy cleaning if required, but usually a rinse in clean water is sufficient. Leave upside down to dry out to avoid any possibility of rust. To avoid the possibility of rust forming in the long term, it is best to not leave the spout in water for any length of time.
These pumps for wet felting are more commonly used for watering Bonsai plants and seedlings. Due to their shape, the other name for a ball brause is a felting pear. Besides being easy to use, these water sprinklers are also suitable for children and not necessarily for felting!
