One of my top favorite brushes!!!
Comments about Silver Brush Black Velvet Round:
I love this brush, all the Black Velvet line that I've used. I use it with watercolor paints and water soluble inks. It holds loads of water/paint (they all do, even the number 4). It doesn't spring back after each touch but that way it stays in the position I need it to and I can move/shape it for exactly the need I have at the moment. It keeps a perfect point so I can use it for tiny lines. The short handle (all my SBV brand are) brush/s fits just right and feels solid and comfortable in my hand. It's smooth, easy, and a pleasure to use. The larger rounds hold so much water it's surprising & the smaller rounds though less than the larger also hold lots especially compared to lots of other small round brushes. I have the travel brush in 8 round too, it works every bit as well!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Especially good for the new artist
from Dublin, CA
After loaning these brushes to one of my watercolor instructors during a workshop, I noticed in future workshop promotions they were his new recommended brush.They say the best tools are the ones you use but if you don't have decent tools, I believe you won't truly enjoy the process. I'm new to watercolor and didn't want to invest too much into materials until I was sure about the medium.Three containers of brushes and these are still the ones I turn to first.
I will buy these brushes again & again

Steve Mitchell uses some of these brushes on his you tube channel, "The Mind of Watercolor". I decided to give them a try. I really like them a lot. They seem to hold a nice load of paint. The oval/cat's paw is very versatile. One can do a nice thin line or a wide wash. Really very happy.
Silver Velvet Brushes very very nice

Silver Velvet Brushes for Water color are great! They pick put color and water well and go a long way in spreading before you need a refill. I ordered R size 10 and 4. For using on Winsor Newton 1/2 pan set of 14, the 10 is a tiny bit too big, would have ordered 8. The 4 is great for doing thin lines and the brush holds up very well. Excellent brushes are affordable price point. The brushes are DIFFICULT to get the original protective glue OFF. Silver should have specific instructions on how to not ruin the brush while getting the protective glue off

I love using these brushes as they contain real squirrel and they are very versatile, holding a lot or very little watercolor. I have taught watercolor classes for many years at the college level and I always recommend these wonderful brushes!

Next best brush to a Sable.
Shakes to a point. Firm spring, yet has Mop characteristics! Better than any Synthetics. Great blend. Good variety in the line.
Didn't know what I was missing!

Comments about Silver Brush Black Velvet Script:
I was blown away by how fine this script brush made the lines. I had used another liner brush previously and thought it was fine until I used this one and realized what I had been missing. It held A lot of paint and made a very beautiful delicate fine hair like line when I wanted it to.

Great brush for the money
I use this brush in my watercolor class. I like this brush better than any synthetic watercolor brush.I do not want to use my expensive sable brushes yet as I am a beginner. This brush is inexpensive and is almost as good as my expensive sable brushes.
Favorite Watercolor Brushes
from Frederick, Maryland
I use these brushes exclusively for all of my studio and plein air watercolor painting.After using Princeton brushes for several years, I tried one of the small flat brushes which I found myself using frequently. I continued to buy more of these brushes and kept running into plein air painters who enthusiastically recommended them. When first using the round brushes I immediately noticed a difference in the amount of paint they hold and the quality of the tips. These brushes are soft, so don't have the spring of my previous brushes, but I have become use to the softness and have found it to be an advantage. The brushes are gentle on the paper and great for glazing over a color you don't want to disturb.These brushes last. I have not yet needed to replace any of them after several years of use.
Love these brushes
from Seattle, WA
These are so great to use on card with the Jewish distress inks. They make it so easy to blend the colors. I have a 2,4,6,8.
