Kuas Plastik Dan Kuas Bulu Babi

Saat ini kebanyakan kuas dibuat dari bristle ( bulu babi). Jarang-jarang ada yang menjual kuas

plastik. Berikut ini contoh kuas plastik dari bahan polyester yang dijual di Ace Hardware:

Kuas plastik dari bahan polyester
Tekstur bulu yang dipakai berbeda dengan tekstur khas bulu babi. Pada bungkusnya terdapat tulisan yang menyatakan bahwa bahan kuasnya adalah 100% SRT Polyester Bristle

Berikut ini perbandingan 2 macam kuas plastik:

Sebagai pembanding, berikut ini contoh kuas dari bulu babi:
Kuas 'Eterna' yang dibuat dari 'China Bristle' alias bulu babi

 

Menurut artikel di situs wikipedia mengenai brush, ada 3 macam bristle, salah satunya adalah ‘China Bristle‘.”China Bristle” biasanya artinya adalah “Hog Bristle” . Hog ini artinya adalah “babi peliharaan”.

Hog bristle juga dipakai sebagai bahan kuas melukis, misalnya kuas merek Winsor & Newton :
Kuas untuk melukis dari bahan bulu babi
Di website Winsor & Newton ada artikel bagus yang secara lengkap membahas berbagai bahan yang dipakai untuk kuas: http://www.gordonbrush.com/material_descriptions.php

Beberapa artikel yang juga membahas mengenai kuas bulu babi:
Okay, sejauh ini artikel ini hanya membahas tentang beberapa jenis kuas. Jadi sebenarnya apakah kuas dari bulu babi boleh dipakai? Dalam mazhab Syafi'i bulu babi termasuk najis sehingga tidak boleh dipakai. Bagi yang menggunakan mazhab lain: Maliki, Hambali dan Hanafi silakan merujuk ke ulama masing-masing, berhubung saya tidak mendalami mazhab-mazhab tersebut.

Why is English so hard to learn?

1) The bandage was wound around the wound.
2) The farm was used to produce produce.
3) The dump was so full that it had to refuse more refuse.
4) We must polish the Polish furniture.
5) He could lead if he would get the lead out.
6) The soldier decided to desert his dessert in the desert.
7) Since there is no time like the present, he thought it was time to present the present.
8) I did not object to the object.
9) There was a row among the oarsmen about how to row.
10) They were too close to the door to close it.
11) Upon seeing the tear in the painting I shed a tear.
12) How can I intimate this to my most intimate friend?
13) I shed my clothes in the shed.

Let's face it - English is a ridiculous language. There is no egg in eggplant, nor ham in ah amburger; neither apple nor pine in a pineapple.
English muffins weren't invented in England, nor French fries in France.
Sweetmeats are candies while sweetbreads, which aren't sweet, are
meat.

You cannot buy boots in Boots, You cannot buy virgins in Virgin, You cannot buy threshers in Threshers and the Superdrug chain is a great disappointment.

We take English for granted. But if we explore its paradoxes, we find that quicksand can work slowly, boxing rings are square and a guinea pig is neither from Guinea nor is it a pig.

And why is it that bakers bake, but grocers don't groce?
If the plural of tooth is teeth, why isn't the plural of booth beeth?
One goose, 2 geese. So one moose, 2 meese? One index, 2 indices?
If teachers taught, why didn't preachers praught?
If a vegetarian eats vegetables, what does a humanitarian eat?
Sometimes I think all the English speakers should be committed to an asylum for the verbally insane.

In what language do people recite at a play and play at a recital?
We ship by truck and send cargo by ship? Have noses that run and feet that smell?

How can a slim chance and a fat chance be the same, while a wise man and a wise guy are opposites?

You have to marvel at the unique lunacy of a language in which your house can burn up as it burns down, in which you fill in a form by filling it out and in which an alarm goes off by going on.

English was invented by people, not computers, and it reflects the creativity of the human race (which, of course, isn't a race at all). That is why, when the stars are out, they are visible, but when the lights are out, they are invisible.

And finally, how about when you want to shut down your computer you have to hi t "START"?

English is a crazy language.
  • There is no egg in eggplant nor ham in hamburger;
  • neither apple nor pine in pineapple.
  • English muffins weren't invented in England or French fries in France.
  • Sweetmeats are candies while sweetbreads, which aren't sweet, are meat.
We take English for granted. But if we explore its paradoxes, we find that:
  • quicksand can work slowly,
  • boxing rings are square and
  • a guinea pig is neither from Guinea nor is it a pig.
And why is it that:
  • Writers write, but fingers don't fing?
  • Grocers don't groce, and hammers don't ham?
  • If the plural of tooth is teeth, why isn't the plural of booth beeth?
  • One goose, 2 geese. So one moose, 2 meese?
  • One index, 2 indices?
Doesn't it seem crazy:
  • That you can make amends but not one amend?
  • That you comb through annals of history but not a single annal?
  • If you have a bunch of odds and ends and get rid of all but one of them, what do you call it?
  • If teachers taught, why didn't preachers praught?
  • If a vegetarian eats vegetables, what does a humanitarian eat?
Sometimes I think all the English speakers should be committed to an asylum for the verbally insane. In what language do people:
  • Recite at a play and play at a recital?
  • Ship by truck and send cargo by ship?
  • Have noses that run and feet that smell?
  • How can a slim chance and a fat chance be the same,
  • while a wise man and a wise guy are opposites?
  • How can overlook and oversee be opposites,
  • while quite a lot and quite a few are alike?
  • How can the weather be hot as hell one day and cold as hell another?
Have you noticed that we talk about certain things only when they are absent?
  • Have you ever seen a horsefull carriage or a strapfull gown?
  • Met a sung hero or experienced requited love?
  • Have you ever run into someone who was combobulated, gruntled, ruly or peccable?
  • And where are all those people who are spring chickens or who would actually hurt a fly?
  • You have to marvel at the unique lunacy of a language in which your house can burn up as it burns down,
  • in which you fill in a form by filling it out
  • and in which an alarm goes off by going on.
English was invented by people, not computers, and it reflects the creativity of the human race (which, of course, isn't a race at all).
  • That's why, when the stars are out, they are visible, but when the lights are out, they are invisible.
  • And why, when I wind up my watch, I start it, but when I wind up this essay, I end it!
