These brushes deliver the superior paint-holding ability of natural hair at an unbeatable price.

Not well made
Comments about Blick Economy Camel Hair Oval Wash:
These were purchased to accompany the fine watercolor brushes our students use in their art classes. These brushes were used for less than one year and maintained properly and carefully by the adult instructors. The brushes were used less often than once per month and yet even with careful handling and light use we had more than half of the brush attachments completely fall off of the handles. This happened during several lessons and was embarrassing and frustrating for the kids. I've had to halt watercolor lessons until I can repair the brushes. I will definitely not buy these again. It's hard enough to get funding for art, now I feel as if we've wasted the money we had spent on these when for a few dollars more I could buy some that won't fall apart while the kids are using them.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Very poor quality
from Howell, Mi
Comments about Blick Economy Camel Hair Round:
These are supposed to be for waterecolor. They are very course, like a hog hair in some instances. I ordered 24. Some are courses than others so they are not consistent. They are not even suitable for a quality kids class.
Merchant response: We're sorry that these brushes weren't of the quality you expected, and we'd like to work with you to make sure you have the brushes you need. One of our Customer Care Agents will be following up to assist you.
The larger brush performs much better, but it is still a great improvement on the otherd rounds I inherited when I took over this class for kids 7-12 years oldLittle disappointed with performance, it doesn't hold a point and is hard to drop in color and feels a bit 'thin' when loading for paint or water.
Fun to use!
I bought these for class 7-12 year olds. Their previous set of brushes were a horror, but when I brought these out--the students were a bit scared to use such a 'big' brush. It did exactly what i hoped--give them a little more confidence to use more water and add more color in their watercolors. It also saves the palettes because with the smaller rounds, they were sticking them into the pans and gumming up the bruhses and ferrules. I think the bright green color is nice and feels like a nice brush in little hands. The real pony hair also performs wells for its price class.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Don't Buy This One
By piano teacher
Was really disappointed. Bristles came out all over my wet watercolor paper, what a mess. Guess I should have tried it first. It was affordable but "WOW" ( not again )
Merchant response: Thank you for sharing your feedback. Before using a new brush, we recommended that you wash and dry the brush at least with warm water. This will help to remove any potentially loose bristles as well as starches placed on the bristles after manufacture. As you wash and dry the brush, lightly tug on the bristles to ensure any loose hairs have been worked out.
Brushes and Stickers
These brushes are shamefully affordable for the value. I have used them for watercolor broad wash techniques in classes. The barcode stickers are hard to get off, are large and leave a sticky residue on the handle (which can be a pain when you have many of them...) I also have to wonder about the reason for the price (are the workers respected where they are made?) perhaps this could be a new line for Blick... Socially responsible item purchses...

Got more than I expected, great value for classroom brushes.
These brushes are a great buy!

I go through a lot of brushes. I want a good deal but don't want brushes that are inferior. These brushes fit the bill. Buy them!
Just what I needed
from San Marcos, Ca
I teach a class (kinder-5th grade) and these brushes worked great for my kids. Easy to use and held up to their little hands. I'm happy with the purchase and can reuse the brushes again and again.. just what I was looking for.
Blick camel brushes
from Monroe, LA
I purchased this pack for my vacation bible school class. These youngsters had never painted before, but despite the abuse, the brushes were easily cleaned and reshaped for future use. This was an excellent choice.One problem- I kept dropping the cannister because of the way the top covers the bottom portion.
