Welcome to dickblick
For students, amateurs, and professionals alike, Simply Simmons Brushes offer excellent performance, dependability, and value — all at one low price, no matter what the size. They are handmade by skilled craftsmen to meet the same high standards artists have come to expect from the Robert Simmons name.
These long handled synthetic bristle brushes are designed especially for work in oils and acrylics. They feature a stiff, dark-tipped polyester filament that handles thicker paints with ease while maintaining a precise point and sharp edges every time.
The brush heads are resin-bonded and crimped to kiln-dried, lacquer-dipped birch handles using seamless brass and aluminum ferrules. This ensures a permanent fit that does not loosen, even with rigorous use.
Simply Simmons Brushes are easy to recognize by their distinctive shiny black ferrules and pearlescent white handles. Reach for them when you need a brush that's well-made, durable, and affordable.
Brush sizes — The length and width of a brush of a given shape and size may vary by manufacturer as brush sizes are not standardized. Since fine art brushes are handmade, expect some variation even among brushes from within a single brush line.

Good for acrylics
from Oregon Coast
I like the springiness of these brushes--substantial enough for heavy bodied acrylics as well as fluid. Sometimes I leave them in the water bucket too long and the white paint finish pops off. These are replacement brushes. I'm not gentle with them. Luckily, they're not too expensive.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Great brushes for acrylic painting
By Pat H
from Salina, KS
These brushes are nice and firm and move heavy body acrylic paint well. I am new to acrylic painting and had only worked with the craft quality paints before. They are very fluid so a softer brush can be used with them. For heavy body paint stiffer brushes like these are the best. I'm really glad to have found them here at Blick.

Wonderful Sturdy brushes
I love these brushes. I have them in almost every size. I'm what they call a "dirty Girl" when it comes to my brushes. I'm famous for leaving them in water for days on end (I don't recommend this). But they are tough brushes and seem to still up to any task at hand and they seem to hold their shape really well.When using these brushes with acrylics, they cover nicely with nice smooth strokes. Besides the fabulous price through our lovely dickblick, they come in quite a wide range of sizes for each style of brush, whether a rounds, or filbert's, or angled, or spotter's, well you get the point. Theses brushes also comee in XL sizes which are fantastic for painting large surfaces on canveses canveses. Plus they come in long and short handle. I use these brushes for pretty much every aspect of my mixed media style. Of all the brushes I own, this brand is the largest part of my brush collection. Worth every penny and then some.

12/14 Round has been SUPER
By artist teacher
I have ordered these 12/14 rounds for the last 4 years and they are the best brushes for advanced art classes. They hold up well and their point holds up to watercolor, acrylic and tempera!.. Students flock to this brand more than any other. They are more of a controlled clean lined painting tool. I am impressed with these more than any other brushes. Quality and Performance exceeds their price. Someone told me about them and I am passing my positive experience to you
