Comments about Silver Brush Black Velvet Brushes:
Half the price compared to another popular stamping site! Glad I found it here! I wanted to find a nice brush to color in hairs on my stamped images. The ate brush didn't give me the effect I was looking for, until I saw a YouTube use this. I got it, and it was fantastic! So happy with the purchase!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

More than Sufficient
By A Statistical Artist
I have a few types of these brushes--the set of three rounds (4, 8, 12) are my workhorse brushes, the 3/4" oval wash is my versatile wash brush, and the 1/2" flat wash comes in handy every now and then when I need something with sharp edges or scrubbing (but it is pretty floppy, being a squirrel-synthetic blend). I've tried other types of brushes, everywhere from cheap synthetics to even a high-quality Kolinsky sable round produced 18 years ago when quality control was better, and maybe it's because I've been using the Silver Brushes the most, but I find that they're my favorite. They hold way more water and paint than cheap synthetics, and provide more control in laying down paint than my Kolinsky sable. While the sable holds more water and pigment and unloads it more slowly, for my style of painting, I do value control and a sharp point just as much as water retention and release. Granted, I generally work around A4 or quarter-imperial sizes for landscapes and illustrations, so I don't have a particularly strong need for brushes that can paint mile-long lines in one stroke. I've had my three rounds for about six months, and I've used them roughly once a week or more frequently, and they've barely shed and are as sharp as ever. I do take very good care of my brushes, though, and I'm hoping they'll still be good for several years!
WISH I HAD GOTTON THEM SOONER!!

Comments about Silver Brush Black Velvet Script:
I could of used these brushes on so many projects. Well worth the price, and I WILL BE Buying from you again.
Better than Squirrel
I have several squirrel brushes but I like these even better. They hold a lot of paint but the release is more controlled and they keep their spring because of the addition of the synthetic fibers. The 3/4" oval wash can make fine lines or broad washes. It's become my favorite all-purpose brush.
Great product with fast service

Better than Butter

Like the difference between using butter over cheap margarine! Great point on these brushes. Wonderful for watercolors. I can't wait to get more, maybe next Christmas?
