Crudink / paintbrush


Every child has the right to paint. Children can express their emotions through painting. But not all children can draw colorful pictures. There are many impoverished children around the world who do not have paints and paintbrushes. They can only use simple tools to draw pictures without colors. Crudink's pigments come from nature,and it use crude ink. Mash the berries or grasses that are everywhere around you into the pen, and turn the knob to extract the paint. This is an ultra-low-cost brush. Children can mix different paints by themselves to stimulate their interest in understanding colors.
