Comments about Foam Brush:
Great deal, quality is there. Better than some of the other brushes I've purchased locally. For a cheap foam brush it is surprisingly good quality in my opinion.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Terrible foam brushes
By Plein Air Painter
from San Francisco, CA
I bought these foam brushes because they were cheap. But it was a terrible mistake. That's the bad thing about buying online, because you can't see the product up close or feel it: the wooden handle of the brushes do not extend into the foam at all. It stops abruptly and is connected to the foam with a flimsy piece of plastic. When I'm gessoing my canvases, it's impossible to apply any sort of pressure on the brush, otherwise the handle would break. I ended up have to hold the foam part itself, getting gesso all over my hands. The foam also rips easily. A few weeks ago I bough a foam brush from a hardware store. It was so much better, I could use the handle, and I was able to wash it and reuse it many times. These ones I got online are 1 time use only, and a frustrating experience when you use them. It's worth paying a little more to get good ones from the hardware store.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Nothing better for edging tiles or painting rims of pottery for a great even straight line.

Foam Brushes Rock!
By Terri the Teacher
from Miami, Florida
I used this project with middle schoolers and they were great! They were able to use it with paint, glue, and mod podge, too. The best part was the clean up; all we had to do was wash them and wait for them to dry and they were as good as new. I highly recommend them for big poster projects, collages, and paper mosaic projects.
I would buy this product again.

We used the 1 inch foam brush with our VBS camp art track. They worked wonderfully and washed up so well.
By Abby Art

These foam brushes snapped in half the first time we used them. Myself and about 12 other art students had these brand new foam brushes break within seconds of using them. You ought to be able to use a sweeping brushstroke technique with foam brushes without them breaking. I will be contacting Blick for replacements!
Merchant response: We are sorry to hear that these brushes did not work out for your project. We have shared your comments with our Product Managers for review. A member of our Customer Care team will be in touch to see if we may assist you with a return or exchange.
