very average waterbrushes

Comments about Royal Langnickel Aqua Flow Brush Set:
I bought these to use as extra water brushes as I already own the Derwent water brushes which are far superior to these. The Royal brushes themselves seem ok, but the brush covers do NOT stay on. That said, I plan to use these in my travel watercolor pan set. These are OK if you didn't want to spend the extra money for the better brushes for trying out using water brushes with your watercolor pencils or watercolor pan sets.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Brushes fall Apart
I put water into one of the brushes and the wet and pulled on the tip, which had been pointed with some glue like substance, the bristles started coming off in my hand. I ended up just throwing them away. It's not worth fighting bristles coming off in a painting.

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Aqua flow brush set
from Peninsula, Ohio
These brushes are inexpensive and easy to clean. The brush does seem to pull the color up in the barrel but easy to empty and refill.

This is definitely one of those "you get what you pay for" products. These waterbrushes are more effective at wicking water away into their water reservoirs than they are at applying water. The water reservoirs ends up with more pigment in it than is left on the page.I recommend the Pentel waterbrushes over these - they have much better valves.

Economical water brush
By Ally in Wonderland Artwork
from Bakersfield, CA
For the quantity and price this is a wonderful deal. I thought so so much that I ordered one set and once I received them I immediately ordered 3 more just to have around. The quality is fairly decent but you should know that occasionally the glue that holds the bristles in can give some and you may lose a few hairs here and there, but considering the price, for me, it wasn't that big a deal.

Cheap cheap cheap
from dallas, TX
I got these at christmas andalthough i asked for sakura koi brushes i got these. I wanted to at least give them a chance, but... they can't even compare. as far as medium and small go, using watercolors are useless and are better left for ink. The second problem i found was when I first opened the package- the brushes seemed glued to appear sharp ended, but when I moved the bristles around to losten them up and god the glue just was like andruff on the brush- it was so crusty and took forever to get all the glue out. Then on top of that the second glue wasn't making the detail brush pointy, it was frayed and ironically no longer a detail brush. all of them were like this. bristles got pulled nto the paint regularly and it was just over all a frustrating experience. I will be going back to the store after holidays to replace these unsatisfactory brushes for ones that actually work well. I say leave these for the elementary schoolers who don't know the difference between a good and bad brush.

Merchant response: Thank you for your review! A starch or gum arabic sizing is commonly used to stiffen the head of the brush to protect the hairs in transport. However, once the brush is cleaned, if you feel it's not performing as it should, we'll be happy to work with you on a return or exchange.

This may not be the top of the line water brush but gets the job done. Good deal.
Feels like a Brush
By Comic Girl Chris

I purchased three in a pack. I also have the Sakura Koi, and I enjoy these better by a lot. I think it all depends on how you're using them. For myself I work with acrylic ink and other pigmented ink. I like how the synthetic taklon in these holds the ink and releases it onto the paper.
water brush review
I have begun sketching recently and my watercolor teacher had us using aquaflow brushes. I thought the "set" would be a good addition to the 3 water brushes I had purchased separately.....the bristles on this set do not work as well for me as the ones purchased singly.Being new to this it may be a case of "its not the machine, its the operator"
