WINSOR & NEWTON SERIES 7 BRUSHES ARE GREAT FOR INKING!
from Lincroft, New Jersey
Comments about Winsor & Newton Series 7 Kolinsky Sable Pointed Round:
These brushes are technically made for watercolor painting, but they can also be used inking black and white art. For a long time I used to use the Raphael Kolinsky Sable brushes, but heard from other artists who worked with black India ink that the W&N Series 7 brushes are the best. And although a little more expensive, they are definitely worth it. The Brush keeps a sharp point, I can get achieve line quality while inking, and the brush moves more smoothly and fluid across the paper when being used with ink. The other brush I use is an Escoda Kolinsky Tajmyr Pointed Round (Series 1212, that one is awesome too. If you work with ink and don't already use the Winsor & Newton series 7 brushes, then you need to get them. It will be worth it.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Best Brushes Period
from auburn NY
Very Expensive , but the Best brushed EVER
Great brushes that make painting a pleasure.
By Al the Eldar
from Orange Park, Florida
I use the brushes to paint my miniture armies (Warhammer, Warhammer 40K, AOS, etc.) and they allow me to paint in great detail. They last longer than other bushes I have used and give a better degree of control when painting.
Best Brush in the World
By Found Dory
from Birmingham, AL
I've been oil painting for over 30 years, and the Series 7 is the best brush I've ever owned. It is widely regarded as such, and its price kept me from indulging for a long time. But since I first splurged and bought it, I've had to have one on hand. I mostly only buy the size 1 round because I use it most. It holds paint well, glides to a point beautifully, keeps it shape, and is a joy to work with. I'm not sure it lasts a lot longer than other brushes, but with care it holds up well. I think it is worth the price because it makes painting more enjoyable, and makes it easier to accomplish what I want. I keep my series 7 in fancy case and call it Excalibur.
Best brush ever
Good brush...don't have to fight it on the work.
No other brushes compare
I am a professional comic book Inker, so my work day revolves around having a quality brush to work with. In that respect, I can say, hands down, the Winsor & Newton Series 7 Kolinsky Sable is the absolute best brush out there. I have yet to find any other brush that allows me the same level of control and/or ability to create as fine of a line! Dick Blick sells the genuine, top quality W&N brush...without worry of it being a knock off or some lesser quality, secondary market version.I highly recommend this item to anyone looking for a top quality brush!
The Best Watercolor Brush Ever
from Nashville, TN
I still get sticker shock when I think about how much I spent for this brush, but my size 5 Series 7 brush has become my favorite and most used tool in watercolor. It's versatility and performance far outstrips any other watercolor brush I've ever used. It holds water and pigment for an incredibly long time, which means my stokes and color distribution are more consistent. I'm sorely tempted to get more. The size 5 is a great starting place if you want to try them out and really experience the difference. If you have the money and you want to have the best watercolor painting experience of your life, I highly suggest this brush.
Forms nice tip on end. Great for details and professional watercolors and holds color great. Still great Kolinsky quality unlike others who have decreased in quality. My former favorite Spain-brand Kolisnsky brush purchased in January is unusable as it does not form tip.
I use these brushes to paint miniatures and they're absolutely fantastic. They hold plenty of paint, and keep their point.
Best brushes made.
from Portland, ME
Blick has the best prices on these, and I shop around. Legendary line of brushes. They take a good amount of abuse while maintaining shape and point. Stop fighting with your supplies and get the real deal!
