Welcome to dickblick
These short-handled brushes are perfectly balanced for watercolor painting. The soft, Golden Taklon filament delivers plenty of spring and good flow.
The handles are finished in a blue gloss, and the ferrules are seamless, polished, nickel-plated brass. The handle of the Flat Foot brush is clear acrylic with a flat end for scraping.

Comments about Blick Scholastic Short Handle Golden Taklon Round:
I found these to be fine brushes for doing the small detail work in oil painting I enjoy doing.
from Virginia's eastern shore
I am using this product in a beginning watercolor class, and I couldn't be happier. I bought #12 round for each of a dozen adult students. It performs well, carries a lot of pigment, doesn't shed, has a fine point. I can't speak to how long it will hold its shape, but it's priced priced such that I can afford to replace it when it does wear.
Nice brushes for the price
from Maui, Hawaii
Great brushes for the price. I teach high school art and these brushes are inexpensive enough I don't mind letting the kids use them freely. They have a decent tip and hold their shape.
from Mundelein, IL
Nice size handle with substantial weight and body to the bristles. Great brush for watercolor washes. Performs as well as brushes 5x its cost.
Big Bang for the Buck
I purchased 30 of these to use in a watercolor workshop for high school students. The bristles held enough water without dripping. Great product!
I teach adults how to paint simple landscapes kn a casual setting. I have tried several different types of brushes and keep coming back to these. They allow students to get a consistent flow of paint and don't leave a trail of loose brush hairs behind. They hold up well to frequent washings. I like the shorter handles as they are easier to handle and don't take up a lot of space in storage containers. I have a variety of flats, rounds, and liners, and they are all great brushes to use!
Our Favorite Brush ever!
By Shell the Artist
from tampa, FL
The flat 1" brush is by far our favorite ever! We nick name them "Big Daddy". This brush is one that we use at our paint and sip studios for EVERY painting we instruct. Can't live without this one. The quality of the brush and the lifetime is the best. Please don't EVER discontinue making this one!
Love, LOVE, LOVE these brushes!
from Tampa, FL
We use these in our Paint and Sip studios. The brushes get lots of abuse from unknowing customers! The brushes are good quality and hold their shape for a long time considering the use. Highly recommend them.
