Comments about Liquitex Basics Round:
I use the Liquitex Basic Round 2 brush for white inks on my comic work, and it works really well. I can get some fairly thin lines with this brush, but the Round 2 seems to run a little larger than other round 2 brushes, at least from what I've seen.The only issue with these brushes is that the bristles don't seem to last too long and start splintering apart at the base, but that could just be improper care on my part.These brushes have very very long handles, which I actually like a lot. It doesn't get in the way or cause any problems, even for someone like me with small hands.DickBlick has the absolute best price on these brushes, too.

This is the best brush I have ever bought. Cleans nicely after use with acrylic paint. Paint goes on smoothly. I'm really happy I bought this brush and hope to buy more!
Made me a small fortune!

Comments about Liquitex Basics Fan Brushes:
I make, for sale, facials and was finding it difficult to find an applicator that would distribute a thin layer of product on the face. Then I ran across these little beauties. Not only do they distribute an even, thin layer, they don't eat up the product. What I once sold was a single application has now become three applications and my sales soared! Thank you Liquitex!!!

First impressions can be wrong!
from Baja AZ
I was prepared to hate all over these brushes after my spouse and I bought several of them, and they arrived with flimsy-feeling, warped handles. I sighed, threw mine in my bamboo brush cup, and figured you get what you pay for. I didn't bother touching these brushes until this evening. I had some detail painting to do on a tropical background for fan-anime, and needed a size 1 flat. The second I started painting I realised what a treasure I had in my hand. The bristles were stiff, snappy(!) and kept their shape even when wet. I was ecstatic when I found out that the grade of white Taklon which Liquitex is using in these even stays stiff after washing, which is more than I can say for my beloved Princeton brushes. Stiff bristles are good, since I do a large amount of tapping and blotting, (I'd call it stippling except I'm applying paint, not lifting it) and scrubbing and scumbling. I am still deducting points because these brushes are truly ugly looking with their cheap silver paint and warped handles,(one looks like you could use it for a bow!) but they are a surprisingly good value in spite of that. The business end of these brushes, which is what counts, is all business, and that makes me a happy painter. Now, if only Liquitex could only improve the handles (without changing a thing on the bristles!!!), they would get an unhesitating five stars from me....

I've been looking for "my favorite brushes," (for acrylic) and thought I'd give Liquitex Basics a try. In terms of look, i.e. the shape of the round brush, and the handle--I found myself repeatedly grabbing it (I bought a lot of trial brushes at one time!)--only to repeatedly come away with "too soft," as my verdict.
Extremely Good Value
from Madison, WI
The brushes are well built and very usable for the many acrylic applications I've used them for. They may not be the best brushes ever made but the price is ridiculously inexpensive. I've been using them several months and they clean easily, and don't break apart. Overall a tremendous value.
