Welcome to dickblick
The Black Pearl series of brushes features Silver Brush Limited's new Mightlon synthetic filament. They are great for use with all heavier media, including oil, acrylic, and water-mixable oil color.
Mightlon, an exclusive of Silver Brush, is a synthetic replacement for hog bristle. It is ideal for heavy body acrylic paints because the fiber performs like bristle, yet does not soften in water-based media.
The satin black handles are fitted with seamless aluminum ferrules, creating innovative brushes at an outstanding value.
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.

Comments about Silver Brush Black Pearl Flat:
I wanted this brush to be great - it was the perfect shape and texture, had lots of flex, but the handle was wobbly in the ferrel right out of the package. I'm sure it won't last.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Merchant response: We apologize for the defective brush, and we're happy to take care of that for you. One of our Customer Care Agents will be following up via email to assist you.
My favorite brushes for oil painting
By Garden Artist
from Salem, Va.
These have long bristles (I use the flats) and are great for everything after the toning and block in (I use hog bristles for that). They also last a long time and hold their shape well.
Comments about Silver Brush Black Pearl Bright:
I have completed a couple paintings with this brush so far. It has done well. Seems to keeps a sharp edge. Time will tell how will hold up over time.

Like this brush very much and will buy more. Handles beautifully and easy to clean. Just right for my process!
Silver Brush Black Pearl
Silver Brushes are wonderful to paint with. They retain their point longer and have a nice spring to them! I had bought a few at the Silver Brush display @ the Portrait Society of America's conference and wished I had bought more. I was so happy to see these available at Dick Blick's. Just wish they would carry them in their brick and mortar stores, too.

These are a pleasure to use, lightweight but still solid. Gives a nice crisp line when needed. Excellant value.
Strong and responsive
from san antonio, texas
These brushes are a great value. The bristles withstand abuse and spring back, they hold their edge, carry a lot of pigment, and clean up well.
