Loved this brush set, and was stoked to receive them. I used them with a number of mediums, and they are a great go-to set! The assortment of brush sizes was great for versatility in my projects. The packaging was lovely with great care and cleaning instructions. On my watercolor//watercolor paper project, the bristles help up nicely (under my often hard hand!!) and were great for control + diversity of texture. They handled paint well and loaded nicely. I also used these for acrylic and then finally oil. The oil was most difficult to clean, per usual, but the instructions were helpful and the brushes durable. Excited to order more and continue creativity in future projects. Would definitely buy from this seller again!

I have to admit, I usually don’t take time to write customer reviews. Having really enjoyed working with these, I wanted to let you know.
I recommend these brushes for multiple reasons:
1. I like the quality and how they load the paint. I use most acrylics– generally with interesting additives for texture or glossy shine.
2. There is a wide variety so I can go from the really fine lines to the background without having to stop to clean bushes for the next color.
3. The packaging was exactly as pictured and described with the individual secure holding for each brush in a reusable bag.
I hope you enjoy them as much as I have. Happy creating!
