Love this brush!
from South Carolina
This is an all around great brush. I love the feel of it and I have wonderful control while working on my watercolors. I did a bit of research before purchasing and found the price to be a great deal through the Blick website. My art teacher recommended these brushes and they are helping me to improve my style and technique. I am very, very happy with this purchase.

My Go-To brush choice
from Temecula, CA
My Go-To brush choice because of their fluid capacity and control when painting edges and detailing ability with various watercolor brush work styles. I have size 101 and 102 series, a 2" wash, and 3 large rounds #8, #10, #12. Still need to get the series 303 scripts.According to how fine of detailing your doing. Be sure tamp the dripable excess watercolor from the tip and body to avoid problems in tiny areas.
Great Prices and selection

Good for fine lines.
My favorite brushes
from Lynnwood, WA
These are the best brushes for detail work in my opinion. I've tried loads of others but keep coming back to these.
I want to say how happy I am that this brush is available again, and that it has been my favorite for years, after years of searching for the perfect affordable small brush that kept its point. They stand up long enough with rough inks! The price is very good because I go through a lot of them and can't afford to wreck the more expensive all sable brushes.
I recommend these brushes
Holds lots of paint and makes a great line.
from Lake of the Ozarks, Missouri
This brush is perfect for the long lines in a painting whether rigging for a boat or the fine lines of a flower. The bristles hold water and pigment nicely and none of the bristles were damaged upon shippling.
