What a mess
Comments about Blick Economy White Bristle Gesso Brush:
No matter what application I used these brushes for I ended up having to pick bristles off my work.They shed like CRAZY!!!
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Merchant response: We're sorry to hear that these brushes have been shedding so much. One of our Customer Care Agents will be following up via email to help you with this.

Perfect for pasting dyes in order to dissolve them
I do a lot of dyeing and these are great for pasting the dye before adding it to the dye bath. I hunted all over my area for this 1/2" size without any luck, so I bought a bunch. They eventually fall apart but who cares at this price?
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

A decent economical option.
from Gilbert, AZ
If you use these brushes for gesso, they work just fine, though after a few uses the bristles will start to shed. This is common with most economy options; if you want a higher quality gesso brush, there are other options. I tried using them for glue application, and while they did work, the shedding was exacerbated. In short, I would not recommend theses to use in mediums with a viscosity much higher than gesso. However, since their purpose is to be used for gesso, I'm giving three stars, because for the price and the quality, they do their job. Good to use with students.
Economy White Bristle Gesso Brushes

from Belvidere, IL
We used these brushes for a public art street painting event. They held up very well, and we were happy with the product for the price. Thank you
from Greenville NC
Used for applying medium, as well as textural paint effects. Sturdy; bristles remain intact, so far. Good brush for the price.
I have two of these brushes
from Chattanooga, Tennessee
I have expensive brushes but when I want to paint foliage I quite frequently go to these brushes. With the right water to acrylic ratio you can achieve nice foliage impressions. I will order two more.

Great product at Great Price!!
By Erin DuFrane Art
from Iowa City, IA
I bought 20 of these brushes for teaching adult paint and collage classes. Brushes worked well for acrylic paint and Mod Podge. They cleaned up easily and retained their shape. Great value! Will purchase more.
