Worth the Price
By Peggy Joyce
from Corvallis, OR
I teach card making at several local craft stores and always reserve this brush for myself when I'm doing a demo thereby opening an opportunity to talk about the difference in brush quality using watercolors. These brushes are fantastic.
Listen to the experts

I should have believed her.The instructor created the materials list for her class. The list has changed in a few ways, but the most important way was that it now strongly recommended a particular brand of watercolor brushes for the intermediate-advanced watercolor class.! The brand of course was Silver Black Velvet. I used them last session and liked them so much I ordered more and more for a friend too! They tend to hold water and apply the color gradually and exactly where I want it. Thank you. Absolutely no gift or otherwise compensation was promised.

Excellent brushes - hold lots of paint!
from San Antonio, TX
I LOVE these brushes. I have the rounds in several sizes, but I find I use the 8 the most. A nice middle ground. It holds lots of water and does a good job of not dumping all the pigment at the beginning. These come to a very nice point and can do very fine lines so they are quite versatile!

Better than any synthetic brush that I ever used. It is really a great brush if you can't afford sable.
Very nice line of brushes!
I am very pleased with this line of brushes and have a few sizes of them. They keep a nice point, but hold a nice amount of water as well.

I'm a watercolorist who also uses watercolor pencils. I'm progressing from student to more experienced and wanted to invest more with brushes. I'm glad I spent time on you-tube investigating brushes as these brushes kept being mentioned by professional artists. I have used them now for several weeks and they are fantastic in flexibility, detailing, holding paint for washes and distribution. I'm already seeing my work look so much better. Great Value.
Best watercolor brush ever!!!
By Sue in CA
This brush holds lots of water yet has a great snap back even after hours of use! I recommend it to all my students. And it is very affordable too.
Silver Brush Black Velvet Brushes
The fine tip on the #8 round I purchased is wonderful! I am able to do detail work and a small wash with one brush. While a pure sable brush holds a wash load the best, this brush does very well- it is the best value that I have seen out there. Dick Block, keep up the great quality level of (brush) inventory! Will be investing in more of these brushes and also for gifts.
Great great great
Great for watercolor
