Welcome to dickblick
An excellent value, the American Painter by Loew Cornell is a legend among artists from coast to coast. Starting with the finest blend of double-filament, dyed synthetic golden Taklon hair, each brush is made by hand to work flawlessly, allowing the artist a high degree of control and maximum dexterity.
The hair is firm enough to work well with heavy body paints and is blended with soft hair as well to facilitate excellent shaping to a square edge or a pointed round. Use with any medium — especially recommended for use with acrylics and watercolors.
Designed for use in decorative painting, ceramics, fabric arts and crafts. These brushes feature lacquered wood handles and seamless aluminum ferrules.

I saw these brushes recommended by a painter on the internet, and they are all they're advertised to be. They may not (or may) last as long as a more expensive brush, but they are very good to use.

American Painter brushes have a very nice spring to them and that makes them my first choice for many applications. They're a much better product than many scholastic and student grade brushes, and I recommend them without hesitation to anyone starting out. This brush won't let you down!

In general, I have found Loew Cornell brushes an excellent value. Many of them last longer than much more expensive brushes and do the jo0b just as well.
I LOVE These Not-So-Pricey Brushes!!

Retired and restarting my love of making art, especially watercoloring, I have a tight budget and these wonderful brushes are more than I had expected! No sheared tips, as many other modern brushes have. You can gently spread the tips from fine to full width with no stragglers!!! Thank you Blick's for a fine budget watercolor brush!
My favorite brushes ever.
from Pickens, SC
I have tried many, many brands throughout the years. These are the best, most versatile and a fantastic value.
inexpensive, and great
I needed an inexpensive brush to use for glues and mediums, so I bought a 1/2" Loew Cornell American Painter Brush. I had also ordered some Holbein Irodori paints. So I took my Arches paper outside on a beautiful May day, with the idea to use only the new brush (usually I would paint with a sable). I was completely mesmerized by the different fine shapes and marks I was allowing it to make. I learned that if I slow down and let the brush play I could get some new forms to come out.
