Comments about Silver Brush Black Velvet Round:
This is such a nice brush,that I've ordered the 3/4 inch oval brush to give it a try.
Best of both on 2 levels!...OK 3 levels!
from Raleigh NC
This is a great brush. I bought both sizes. #1. The squirrel-synthetic combo has great water holding capacity without being overly floppy. #2. The shape of this brush is great for wider strokes but with the tip you can do smaller areas if needed without having to change brushes. However the tip is not as pointed if the brush is really full of water or paint. #3. This brush feels good in the hand!
Love my new Silver Black Velvet Brush!
from Santa Maria, CA
Purchased this brush based on the recommendation of a professional watercolor artist. It's awesome. It possesses the best traits of both the synthetic and natural hair components that it is made of. When I can afford to, I'll be purchasing other sizes of Silver Black Velvet Brushes.
This line was recommended to me and I am loving it. The round keeps a fantastic point and holds a LOT of water.
LOVE this Brush!

I bought the size 6 and I absolutely love this brush. Beautiful point and spring. Will be buying other sizes for sure!
I intend to buy more of this type of brush

As a beginner, I fumbled around with different WC brushes and could not tell the diference from one to any other. Then I heard about these brushes from watching a review on a YT video, "The Mind of Watercolor". I love these brushes and intend to use more of them.
BEST Affordable Watercolor Brushes
By Mara Medium
This is my first purchase of a professional grade watercolor brush and I cannot be happier. I now own the Black Velvet Silver line brushes in 2, 4, 6, 8 and 12. I believe the price is very affordable compared to other artist grade brushes using real animal hair fibers. This one is a blend of synthetic and squirrel and I very much enjoy it. I immediately was able to accomplish watercolor techniques I have been trying for months with other brushes with no success. The use of it is smooth, it holds water and pigment very well and allows me to enjoy painting more without having to constantly refill the brush or waste paint. The handle is very sturdy and has quality materials that can be felt. I do recommend skipping the sizes, as some are very close to each other (either 4 or 6, but not necessarily both). Overall, I love them and with proper care they will last me a lifetime.

I purchased the Size 8 round and this is my new favorite brush. It's easy to control and holds a nice point. I will be purchasing more Black Velvet brushes of varying sizes very soon.
