Finally found my watercolor brushes!! Highly Recommend!

Comments about Silver Brush Black Velvet Round:
Having previously only worked in oils, I've been very frustrated trying to find "my" brush since I started working in watercolors last Feb. . [I have a few lines that I felt worked well for me in one shape/size or another (Escoda Reserva for one) , but then disappointed when I added others to my collection. I even felt the very pricey Series 7 from Winsor & Newton brushes were not picking up enough paint in the smallest sizes.] Seriously, these were the 33rd and 34th brushes I purchased in the past 6 months so you know that I am picky about my tools! These brushes are fabulous ... great spring and snap, hold their points exceptionally well and, importantly carry a lot of paint yet release it easily offering great control with a very natural feel. Now I'm just on the alert for art supply sales so I can add more shapes and sizes. Highly recommend!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

love these brushes
nice and springy. keeps its shape and holds a good sized load of paint.
Wow what awesome bristles !!
from New Orleans
For synthetic, this is a very very very nice set of bristles. I got the one-inch cat's tongue (a.k.a. oval wash with a point) and I'm delighted. The bristles when TOTALLY dry are totally normal; but when wet (even just a LITTLE bit wet) they cling to one another and maintain shape perfectly, just like Alfalfa's cow-lick. Oddly, they have a smaller amount of "snap" or spring-back than many synthetics I'm familiar with that are designed to mimic natural sable. This brush will remain bent left or right, but will also remain gathered properly in the middle, so it has either best-of-both-worlds capacity to bend but cling, or maybe you'll think it's worst-of-both-worlds inability to spread. I didn't want it to spread, that's for other brushes. EXCELLENT brush.

I had not used these brushes before, but in my last class they worked really well. They held a lot of liquid which was great!

I understand the hype!
from Elizabethton, TN
I've seen these brushes talked about for some time. Normally they are quite expensive but compared to their normal price I felt like this was a bargain. They are such a delight to use. This set contains all I will need for watercolor washes and details in my card making. I love them!
my go-to brushes
I use the black velvet brushes for watercoloring on a daily basis. These brushes are great. They hold and distribute paint very well. I have many of the sizes. I really like the new plastic ferrules because I have had the paint chip off the handle off my jumbo mop. One of my favorites of these is the Oval wash. This brush holds a lot of paint and can get into small spaces and also can cover large areas.
from Northern NH
Less expensive than other equivalent brushes. Looks and FEELS glamorous to use!
