Only stores 10 long handle brushes
from Sharon, MA
Comments about ArtBin Essentials Brush Box:
I bought this box to store long handle bristle brushes. It works fine, keeping the brushes in place during transport. But beware -- the description says the box stores up to 20 brushes, but it only fits 10 long handle brushes.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Merchant response: Thank you for your feedback. Although this holder can store up to 20 brushes, this does vary with the size of the brush. For example, long handle brushes can often be seated two per slot, with the tuft of one brush behind the tail of another, but of course this won't be suitable for large sizes where the tuft and handles are thick. Our Product Information Team would be happy to further assist you in using this brush holder to its best advantage. You can reach them weekdays 8am to 5:30pm CST at 1-800-933-2542 or email@example.com. We look forward to hearing from you!

Does not work if you have a lot of brushes
from Los Angeles
I have to carry about 10 or more long handle oil pain brushes and I had a tough time to fit them all inside the opennings of the foam. You can fit 4 or 5 maximum. If the handles of the brushes are a little tick, then the brush does not fit inside the opennings at all. It may work for me if I remove the foams. But I paid too much for this box that is not working perfectly. I returned it immediately. I wish they would just make a simple box without foams to carry long handle brushes.
Merchant response: We're sorry to hear that this brush holder didn't work out for you, and of course we were happy to accept a return.

The product is ok
By Black Tulippe
from San Francisco CA
The product is ok. The sponge slots for the brushes do not work very well. Special when you try putting a smaller number brush to larger number brush or two large number brushes next to each other. But I still use this as it keeps all my brushes in one place.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Excellent brush carrier.

Better after I removed the foam
I wanted something for transporting my brushes. This fits the need but only after I removed the foam (which isn't easy). I plan to get another one and, yes, remove the foam.
Great for travel
I love this brush box. Great for travel and plain air painting. This box helped me pack and organize all the watercolor and oil painting brushes I needed for an extended painting trip. I prefer this over the canvas roll-up type of carrier. Brushes are well protected in this lightweight box and the foam supports hold brushes firmly and separate from each other. Great flexibility -- holds both long- and short-handled brushes, and a little space left for pencils, charcoal, etc. And...great price.
from Vancouver, WA.
The paint brush box was recommended by my instructor and it works perfectly. The brushes lie flat unlike other holders where water oould drip into the ferrule and damage brushes.I didn't know this type of brush holder existed and am happy a pro suggested it, my brushes are safe.Helen
Great box for brushes
from Stevens Point, Wi
Great product for holding a small number of brushes. Works great!
from Mount Dora, FL
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.

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.
