Welcome to dickblick
Redesigned to meet the standards of our other Masterstroke brushes, this professional grade of Golden Taklon is carefully engineered with tapered filaments to mimic the belly and point of natural hair. A mix of diameters gives artists a brush with great control, point and absorbency that is exceptionally easy to clean.
Each brush features a natural wood handle with a matte black finish and seamless stainless steel ferrule that complies with non-hazardous standards. A great choice for watercolor painting, portraiture or other fine work in oils or acrylics.
Brush sizes — The length and width of a brush of a given shape and size may vary by manufacturer as brush sizes are not standardized. Since fine art brushes are handmade, expect some variation even among brushes from within a single brush line.

Arrived bent and frayed
Comments about Blick Masterstroke Golden Taklon Round:
I didn't expect the brush to be awesome because it's inexpensive, and you get what you pay for. But it arrived already bent to one side and with brush hairs all flayed out from the center. There's no tip at all. I did my best to straighten it out by wetting it and molding it straight, and will still try to use it, but won't be ordering this kind of brush again : /
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

My favorite brushes
I love these brushes. They really shine when I want to paint close to edges, but they give excellent coverage on larger surfaces, too. I even mentioned one size as "my best brush" in my forthcoming book, "Aunt Ellie's System for Making Miniature Furniture."
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Great quality brushes
I go through a lot of brushes painting on rough wood. These brushes are soft enough for great detail. And lasted the longest. I will be purchasing more
Blick Masterstroke Golden Taklon Brushes
from Portage, Indiana
My art instructor recommended these brushes and I am really glad he did! I like using them and will throw away some of my old brushes and use the new ones most of the time. They are great.
I will buy more
from Helena, MT
I use this brush with acrylic paints. It is a good quality brush and I am really happy with it. I'll be buying more Blick brushes based on my experience with this one.
Size 0 for Fine Detail
from Houston, Texas
Like this brush a lot. It retains its shape, no hairs going every which way. Nice blend of stability and softness. Would buy again.
You just can't go wrong with Blick Golden Taklon Brushes!!
By Laura Sue
from Sumter, SC
Haven't used Blick in quite a while, but recently retired. Was so glad to return to a "friend" who I knew would supply me with great products at a reasonable price. The brushes were replacements, specific sizes and textures needed for a planned project. You just can't go wrong with Blick Masterstroke Golden Taklon Brushes, and the shipping was very fast.
I would buy again, definitely!

LOVE THEM! Perfect for myself and my middle school students. Great quality - great price!
Great synthetic brushes!
from Ponchatoula, La
I've recently started using Blick Masterstroke Golden Taklon Brushes and I absolutely love them. In this past year, I'd decided to only use synthetic brushes and have tried several brands. These are every bit as good as my natural hair brushes from a usability perspective. They're a great value, sturdy and seem to hold up very well.
from Ozark Mountains
Just what I wanted and super fast shipping.
