Comments about Princeton Series 4000 Heritage Synthetic Sable Filbert:
I started painting about 11 years ago and had this one brush that I really, really liked. I wanted to find more like it but had no luck since the printing on the handle had worn off. On a whim I ordered one of these and was finally reunited. This line of brushes have good spring, excellent feel, and are almost indestructible. I'm still using the original one from 11 years ago after punishing it through scrubbing, hard-dabbing, and scumbling. I've tried about 2 dozen other brushes from pure kolinsky sables to pure synthetics and other hybrids from all top-of-the-line manufacturers, but these are in a class unto themselves. If you are looking to get a lot of bang from your buck, this is a good line to try.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

My choice for replacement of Daniel Smith Faux Mongoose
from Washington State
Comments about Princeton Series 4000 Heritage Synthetic Sable Bright:
I used Daniel Smith Faux Mongoose for years until they stopped making them and had to experiment to find a replacement. These are the brushes I settled on. I've tried several brands and several styles within those brands but many were too stiff or too short and in the case of Rosemary and Co, too soft which I didnt think was possible. It really boils down to a personal feel which varies with each individual but I like the bounce and they seem durable enough. They dont last forever but that could just be the way I paint, the canvas I use and/or how often I paint and clean them.

I haven't used the brushes yet, so I can't comment as to how they hold up. I was very disappointed when I received them though, because the size numbers don't match up with the sizes of my other brushes. They are much smaller brushes compared to the same number on the brushes I'm currently using.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

The best way to get my art stuff!
from Marion, Iowa
It's the only place to get the art materials I need. We have several art stores in the neighborhood but they deal mainly in craft stuff. For quality brushes, paint and canvas, this is the only place to go!
