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.

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.
Work well to remove paint errors, very strong bristles, clean up easily.

Excellent scrubber brushes
from San Diego, CA
I use these scrubbers for watercolor and these are absolutely wonderful! I like the various sizes so that when I have a small area it is easy to remove with clean lines remaining. Before I only had a big oil paint brush and it doesn't remove nearly as well. I'm very pleased with these brushes and highly recommend them!

The #2 scrubber brush is perfect for very small lift outs that would normally require a stencil with larger brushes. The bristles are the right stiffness and shape for successful lifting on Arches watercolor paper. They have brightly colored handles and easy to find amongst my other small brushes.

Do their job
I got the set of 3 on a whim. When you want to scrub a bit of paint off these are much more suitable than softer, expensive ones. I have been using them to correct mistakes and also for getting some white to show behind shrubs or in clouds. The bristles are stiff. If they get stained some soap and whisking will make them white again.The overall impression is that of a well made brush very suitable for the purpose.

These are sturdy brushes made of flat, dense, and stiff nylon hairs meant to 'scrub' or lift out watercolor pigment. I bought a set of 3 (comes with size 2, 6, 12), and I really like them. I like to lift out a lot of highlights, but I don't want to ruin my good brushes (both natural and synthetic) by constantly rubbing them over the paper. Like the other reviewer below, I'm starting to gravitate more toward low staining pigments, which makes lifting a lot easier, but in the instances where I do use staining pigments, like Phthalo Blue or Green, and I make a mistake, these are especially useful. The bristles will probably get stained after a few uses, but this won't affect their performance. (Mine are stained green, but as I was taking the picture for this review, I realized that I had only stained one side of the brush, because that was the side I was habitually using!)I also do agree with the other reviewer that said that some of the brushes run a bit small. My size 2 is fine, but size 6 looks more like a 4, and size 12 looks more like a 10. But this is a minor quibble.To use, simply rewet the paper, wait a few seconds, and then start gently dabbing and rubbing, applying more friction as needed. If you're too vigorous with these, you could damage the paper. (If you're lifting a staining pigment, it might be better to not let the paint dry completely before you start lifting, so that the pigment won't settle into the paper's layers.) Then blot the area with a paper towel and repeat if necessary. In the instance where you've got a really stubborn area that won't lift, you could actually use a small piece of Mr. Clean Magic Eraser instead.Overall, these brushes are a staple for me. The quality is good and so is the price. Thanks for reading my review, and I hope it was helpful to you!
