Fun and Vibrant
Comments about Brusho Crystal Colours:
Fun to use, hard to control! A little goes a long long way. I haven't actually used them in a project yet, but have enjoyed playing on scrap. I like their loose nature and will continue to experiment with how I want to use them.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

So much fun in a tiny jar!
from Mountain View, CA
#sweepstakesI buy the Brusho crystals as open stock to experiment with them in mixed media. They are a riot! The color Black is the most interesting of the bunch.Dick Blick had a great deal on the price, so I bought a few more, to round up my collection.

These powders were used as background for plantlife and coral reef watercolor paintings.Using a brush in some areas enhanced the feel of a sea life scene.
Prepare to be colorfully messy and spontaneous
from Portland, oR
I enjoy the flexibility of the Brusho crystals, the color intensity, the ability to supplement my existing water colors with them as well as use them for wool felting fabrics as a staining color. They are not your typical, traditional water color and lend themselves towards creating painted textures for 2-D work, and work well with salt, bleach and air/straw techniques. I love the spontaneity of Brusho colors. They'll paint themselves, if you let them.

The Brusho pigments are so vivid and easy to apply. I'm experimenting with watercolors and these pigments. So far I really enjoy using them.
You have a fan in me!!!
from Rochester, NY
Mind-boggling!!!! The movement and excitement this product brings will blow your mind! Your painting nearly paints itself! Do an entire painting with it or bring any "dead space" in a painting to life again with Brusho ! I rarely rave about anything, but I'm raving about Brusho! I was reluctant at first...wondering if the same effect could be accomplished by simply grinding up some dry watercolor...Once I tried it...no comparison! You've really got to try it!
These colors are so amazing! I love their brilliance!

Brusho Crystal Colours are AMAZING!!!
from Ottawa, Ontario, Canada
I am head-over-heels in love with these Brusho crystal paints!! They have changed the way I paint my watercolours both for helping me fill in backgrounds (which I always struggle with!) or for highlights used with my regular watercolours. I absolutely LOVE THEM!! I love them so much that I've ordered an extra box of 24 colours plus some single ones just so that I don't run out of them too quickly HA! True though, they are such a nice addition to my paintings and everyone seams to notice them when I post them, they always comment on the beautiful bright colours of the areas used with Brusho!!
