    "I made the first Mahl Bridge because I wanted control when I painted delicate shapes (such as ship's masts and ship's rigging) and exacting architectural shapes. I wanted support for my hand and a guide for my brushes. The Mahl Bridge provides both. I hope you also enjoy the benefits of this handcrafted tool."
    Bill Hudson,
    President of Watermen Art

    "I've been using the mahl stick for years. By comparison the Mahl Bridge is so good it's almost like cheating! I've tried to find something wrong. I can't. It's GREAT! see Matt's art at"

    "This is a fantastic instrument for adding special touches to my artwork. I love what it allows me to do. I believe this is one of the must-have tools for professional artists."
