Welcome to dickblick
This is one of Princeton's best-selling and most affordable brush lines. For students, these are great brushes to start with — but they're also ideal for artists who do a lot of scrubbing and really beat up their brushes!
Strong, sturdy, inexpensive, and made for everyday use, these all-purpose brushes are for use with oil and acrylic paint.
Thick and full-bodied, they hold lots of paint. Pure interlocking white Chinese hog bristle holds its shape extremely well.
Each brush has a seamless aluminum ferrule, fitted into a lacquered dark blue handle.
Brush sizes — The length and width of a brush of a given shape and size may vary by manufacturer as brush sizes are not standardized. Since fine art brushes are handmade, expect some variation even among brushes from within a single brush line.
™ Princeton is a trademark.

Comments about Princeton Series 5200 Natural Bristle Fan:
I use this brush in oil painting on cardboard, paper and wood. It is the nicest bristle line I have tried, with excellent spring, holding power, and craftsmanship. A pleasure to use and to clean...I will be buying more

These brushes are a good balance between cost and quality. I have really enjoyed using my Princeton brushes and, in fact, ordered several. They hold up well, don't shed hairs, and perform well.
Needed a stiff acrylic brush so decided to try. Looks well made and a solid value. I ordered the Bright which has short bristles and it does a good job scrubbing paint.

I received my Blick Princeton Series 5200 brushes in record time and they were exactly what I ordered and needed. They are extremely good quality and I will be using them for a very long time. I plan to order from Blick in the future

The Princeton #6300 series brushes are my "go to" brushes...like them a lot.

We used these brushes to do detail work on acrylic paintings. My students said they worked great and I find them to be a good brush for the price.

Not what they used to be
I use these for classes. Several years ago I ordered a few dozen of these on the recommendation of another artist. Loved them... they were great. Worn those out so I ordered more. These are not the same quality. Almost like painting with stiff straw. Bad. I will be returning the unused ones and looking elsewhere for replacements.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
