Welcome to dickblick
Hard-to-do textures are a breeze with the Funny Brush. Use it to create the effect of leaves on a tree, the look of grass, hair, and fur, or a random stippling.
After using, wipe off the rubber filaments with a tissue or cloth (turpentine and solvents will dissolve the plastic case) and wash with soap and water.

Used it to paint some grass and folage on a tree. Was impressed with results on the grass. Fo folage I actually had to let it dry in between coatings.

I wasn't aware there was such a brush. I am satisfied and it saves me much time with excellent results.

Unique, effective, but way overpriced
By frisco slim

Having seen this product, I now realize that one could make one very easily. Take a rubber band and chop it into straight pieces about 1" long. Tightly bind those rubber band pieces into a bundle, secured with another rubber band. Stick the bundle into some kind of tube sized such that the bundle is a tight fit. The ends should stick out about 3/8". That's it.Having said all that, this product worked well for me in a faux finishing application. It's good for applying small daubs of paint in a mottled, dappled fashion, in a smaller pattern than one would get with a sponge. But if I had it to do over again, I wouldn't spend this much money on a tool that is easily improvised.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

A wonderful artist tool
When I first saw the funny brush I thought that a person could not possibly paint with it. My sister-in-law, who is a professional artist, recommended it to me so I thought I would try it. Now I am in love with the brush. Doing landscapes with them is fun and very functional. The effects you achieve are fantastic. They make the work look twice as good and take half the effort.
What's so funny?

These are helpful brushes for making foliage or any similar texture. They seem quite sturdy so I'll share them with my two grandsons as well. The price is also reasonable.

Interesting and useful.
By Montana Bird Mommy
from Billings, MT
These seem like a novel way to create interesting textures. I bought them to try to make leaves on trees and foliage, since everything was coming out "curved" with the fan. These get the job done with a more "natural" looking result. Perhaps they would have no use in more experienced hands, but for me, they are WONDERFUL. As a sidenote... They feel like the are made of a bunch of rubber bands tied together with the ends cut. The don't seem to absorb any of the paint, and are fairly easy to clean, as easy as any other brush. I'm submitting a photo as well so you can see the relative size of each brush next to a real hand, as I had a hard time figuring out which ones would be best for different usages. I went ahead and bought the whole set, and am not at all sorry that I did. They are economical and useful enough to warrant it, for me anyway.
