      A brush used for manually tapping in the process of manufacturing paper matrices.
    • Characteristics:
      A paper matrix is one of the copying techniques for movable type printing. After pouring melted lead into a specially made paper matrix, a lead plate with relief can be formed for printing. When the paper matrix is made manually, the damped paper needs tapping with a brush in order to shape it. There are at least three layers piled in a matrix; each layer needs several papers to stack up and form into shape individually.
