Welcome to dickblick
Let's face it — everyone makes mistakes when watercolor painting! Luckily, these scrubber brushes are all you need to correct those mistakes.
Simply re-wet the area you want corrected, wait a few seconds, then scrub the paper, blot, and re-work.
The nickel-plated ferrules hold extra-stiff white nylon bristles.

Comments about Blick Scrubber Brushes:
For softening edges in a watercolor, this is the ticket. For my 11x15 paintings, I find the size 2, 6 and 12 to work really well. Making sure they are clean first, dip in clean water and remove the excess before scrubbing. Then dab with a paper towel, clean the brush and repeat. Of course there are other ways to approach it, but this way works well.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Would love to see a thinner product in the smallest sizes.
from Albuquerque, NM
These are good for "general" lifting. However, I'm a traditional watercolorist and would love to have the two smallest size scrubbers half as thin. I lift highlights from the hair portion of my portrait-like paintings. Frisket could be used instead, but it's bothersome, time consuming and too hard edged. I have won awards with my method of "lifting" highlights with a scrubber. I just need a very thin one.

Works as advertised. Just keep rinsing as you scrub and it will keep removing pigment -- as far as you can get certain pigments out at all, that is. Bristles seem soft enough to avoid wrecking the paper surface.
SORRY BUT HAD IS KNOWN THEN WHAT I KNOW NOW I WOULD HAVE LOOKED FOR A FLAT ANGLED SCRUB BRUSH. THESE BRUSHES WERE JUST NOT SUITABLE FOR SCRUBBING WITH WATER COLORS. NEXT TIME I WILL KNOW BETTER
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

One of the best

Heard about how amazing those brushes are, but trying them is something else! A must have
Great little scrubber
from Detroit, MI
Great for cleaning up mistakes with watercolors. Use carefully not to damage the paper. Works better than an old brush.
Three perfect sizes
from Cincinnati, OH
I really like these 3 scrubbers for use in watercolor painting. The 3 sizes cover any small or big areas I want to scrub out. I like the shape of them, a rounded pointed top that can reach tiny spaces. I might have wanted one bigger size than the biggest one provided.
Great for changing color shades
Have used scrubbers for years, they are very satisfactory
Too Large for Fine Veins on Leaves
from Herndon, VA
I got the smallest scrubber (2) to do small veins on leaves. Some of the reviewers had commented that they ran small, so I was expecting something closer to a 1 or 0. I'm posting this review to let buyers know that the 2 was true to size of what you would expect a 2 to be - which meant it was too large for my purpose. It was my fault for listening to the reviews, not the product's fault. As a scrubber, it worked very well and did everything I expected it to.
