Bamboo Calligraphy Paintbrushes--WOW!
from Austin, TX
Comments about Blick Bamboo Brush Series 564:
I got much more than I bargained for...the image online for the brushes I received did them no justice! I often compare quality of the materials I am interested in purchasing online and I thought, especially die to the low price, that I would relieve OKAY quality brushes. Thankfully, I was pleasantly surprised...it was the touch of elegance my Zen class needed; thank you! I WILL be buying from you again...spreading the word! :-)
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I'm using these brushes with novice Chinese Brush painting students. They are very pointed, which is what I look for in good brushes. It's great to have a 3-brush set of sizes for the students. Very reasonably priced.
Blick Bamboo Brush
I used this product with watercolor. The small brush worked well but had stray hairs sticking out. The large brush looses hair in the paint. Like cheap brushes sometimes do.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Merchant response: We're sorry to hear that these brushes haven't performed well for you. Someone from our Customer Care Center will be reaching out to you to see how we can help.
Stamped with Bramd
By Elementary Art Teacher
These brushes are a good value. Three sizes are useful for water coloring, calligraphy, etc. I bought a lot of them for use in my elementary art room. I was disappointed to see that each brush is stamped "Dick Blick". I will be spending some time to find a solvent that will take the print off- I don't need to hear each child read the name and laugh.Other than that, a great product.

I use bamboo brushes in many painting projects including Sumi-E work. They are long lasting and for me practical hard working tools.Joy

I gave these to my daughter as part of a Christmas gift with some drawing inks. She was thrilled and couldn't wait to use them.

The last time I purchased bamboo brushes was over 30 years ago. Things change, of course. I do like these brushes, they do all I require of them, very well. I am using them to do traditional Japanese brush paintings. I have no complaints.
Not a good brush for Chinese character
from Cary, NC
I bought it with the intention to practice Chinese Characters. First the tip of the brush is not trimed, secondly it does not hold ink, and very easy to bleed. Thirdly, one of the brush came without the cap.
Merchant response: We are sorry to see that you were not completely satisfied with our Bamboo brushes. A member of our Customer Care team will contact you to see if we can assist you with a return or exchange.
All good but size 2
I have been using them with my students and although they have been very god about not leaving the brushes in water, almost all if the size 2 handles have cracked severely. They size 4 and 6 are much more durable.
Merchant response: We are very sorry, it sounds as though the handles on the size 2 brushes may be defective. A member of our Customer Care team will be in touch to assist you further.
