Comments about ArtBin Essentials Brush Box:
I am an Art Teacher for an elementary school and I use this box to hold my personal brushes. I like how it keeps every brush separate in the box. It holds several of my long-handled brushes.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Not that usefull
By Robert a painter
from Crawford County, PA
This brush box has two strips of foam with slits cut in them. The slits are what holds your brush in place. Unfortuantely, the foam strips are strategically placed such that, regardless of the brush orientation, one of the strips is at the brush ferule. This means that only the very smallest brushes can be held by the foam. The ferule of a size 6 Princeton or Isabey brush doesn't fit in the foam slit. To make the holder useful, I ripped out one of the foam strips which I will reattach in the middle of the box with a glue gun when I can find one. This foam strip will meet the brush handle with the brushes in one orientation. Might be useful for very small brushes or short water color brushes.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

No matter what medium I use, the brushes are kept in separate boxes. After cleaning I put the brush securely in the box where it stays in place not hitting the edge. I have recommended ArtBin brush boxes for years to my students wherever I have taught in US. It is a great product and I have not stopped buying more of them even though the brush boxes contribute to saving the abuse my brushes take.
Should have had these long ago
By George the Painter
from Tucson, AZ
When you travel a lot with expensive brushes for acrylics and water soluble oils (nice synthetic brushes) and watercolor (love those sables) and want to protect them...this is the way to go. Roll-up protectors, canvas or whatever just did not pack well and sometimes deformed the bristles.The only thing I will do is to enlarge or cut more ventilation holes so that the brushes have a better chance to dry en route to my next plein air site.

I couldn't live without this brush box. It's great for holding brushes. While it may be larger in size, it's worth every inch it takes. I wouldn't be without one or two of these brush boxes. The only negative (if there is one) is that one needs to check on their brushes if the box is dropped. The brushes don't stay in place even with a minor drop and some of my better brushes have had their tips bent, although they spring back to a point when wet. If one uses inexpensive brushes, make sure to check where they lie in the box; they quickly shift and run into the end of the box if tips are to the outside. Guess I should put the brush tips inward now that I know.

Bulkier than you might think
I know, I know. It's my own fault. I saw the measurements. But if you are thinking of this for packing for en plein air, or just travel H2O sketching, grab an old cereal box and make yourself a mock-up based on the dimensions. (I shoudl have). Seems to be a great product, but won't work for what i had i mind. I'll store excess brushes in it.
