A quality brush that holds up well
By A painter
from Pittsburgh, PA
Comments about Grumbacher Gainsborough Flat:
I've used quite a few brands in this brush category and have found the Gainsborough to be is as good as it gets. It holds its shape better than most that I've used...including the Rosrmary brand...and wears extremely well.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Not what it used to be.
By JK Signs
from Asotin, WA
Over the years I have used the Grumbacher Gainsborough without question for my oils. Recent purchases show the bristle was too long, floppy and lacking in body - just plain flimsy. I found them to be useless and won't ever buy them again.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

A friend let me borrow his brush...loved the brush so much I bought a size 10 and 12...All I can say is they are the best brushes..I use them for acrylic painting..they give me just the effect I have been looking for when I am painting landscapes..don't know how I managed without them...

A hard to find brush found on this website. As far as I'm concerned, hogs hair brushes are the only brushes for acrylic painting (large canvasses that is). thanks for carrying this product.

These are traditionally used with oils and acrylics, but I use them for watercolor. Man are they thirsty! These brushes hold a lot of water. Great for graded washes. The handles are a beautiful emerald green color. I wish they came in a short handle version, but I guess that's what I get for using them in a non-traditional fashion.
a fabulous brush that gives stellar performance!

A Fan of these FANS.
By Oregon duck
from Beverly Hills, FL
Comments about Grumbacher Gainsborough Fan:
These fan brushes are great for painting Evergreens. The brush works well for softly blending colors. They clean up easily and retain their shape.
they hold up well
from McMinnville, OR
These brushes seem to hold up well to hard use. I am quite rough with my brushes on occasion, like to scrub the paint into the canvas. I get upset,however, particularly when a brush loses a hair on the canvas. These brushes seem to be more reliable in that way. I am now going to try the blick brushes against them (bristle) and see how they do. Will let you know.
