Better after I removed the foam
Comments about ArtBin Essentials Brush Box:
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.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

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.

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 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.
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.
