Welcome to dickblick
Perla Toray White is perhaps the finest quality soft synthetic fiber available for artists. It keeps an excellent edge for a soft, yet controlled application.
Escoda cures each brush to increase the spring and resilience of the hair.
The long, gray-lacquered wood handle is triple crimped to the nickel-plated brass ferrule. The nylon filaments vary in diameter to allow for a more natural point and appearance.
Long and Short Handles — Long handles are recommended for easel style painting, while short handles are recommended for table-top painting where the artwork lies flat, especially with water media.

Not good for watercolor
from Wisconsin Dells, WI
Comments about Escoda Perla Toray White Synthetic Short Handle:
I don't like this brush for watercolor, it is very stiff and not absorbent. It tends to flick the paint, does not flow well.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Comments about Escoda Perla Toray White Synthetic Round:
I have never been a round brush fan until now but got them on the recommendation of Thomas Schaller whose work I greatly admire. I like cat's tongue brushes and still do, but my Perla round brushes are jockying for top spot in my affections. They do everything from washes (using the side) to fine lines (using the point.) I like them better than a rigger because I have more control. I strongly recommend these.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
escoda white toray synthetics - watercolor
Priced very well and perfom even better. Great brushes. Will be buying more. Escoda is my go to choice for all aynthetics and as well as other watercolor brushes and types.
from Balto. Md
I bought other brushes for watercolor work but I really like this brush , it is soft and a pleasure to use
Surprised at the low cost at Dick Blick considering the high quality of these brushes.
Only brush I ever want to use
I use to rely a lot more on my sketches before using these brushes. They feel like you can draw with them when you want to but also get great brush strokes from it that a squirrel or soft synthetic cant. I use them for gouache and watercolour. Soon as I bought a 12 round and used it I reordered a collection of them.
two thumbs up
I tried the 12 round out with gouache and I regret not buying a stack of these brushes. The water release rate, control and feel of the brush is excellent. If you're reading this to decide to buy them or not you don't know what you're missing out on. I want to throw out all my other brushes and replace them with escodas

"I would be lost without these Escoda brushes"
from Cape Coral, Florida
The absolute "top of the line for synthetic brushes". These brushes take a beating and come back for more. The fact that the point retains it's sharpness is perhaps "the" most wonderful thing about it. Of course,with everything, there's always personal preference, but with specific styles of painting in watercolor, these are far better than a lot of other( synthetic) brushes I've tried.And on top of all this I will quote, the famous watercolorist, Joseph Zbukvic." I would be lost without these Escoda brushes". If a "master" in watercolor states this, do you take his advice?
