Extra-long white Hog bristle fills these excellent-quality brushes. They are especially useful for beginning oil and acrylic painting because they're thick enough to push heavy paint around with ease.
Each brush features a seamless polished aluminum ferrule and a long, natural wooden handle with a lead-free green gloss finish.
Economy White Bristle, Flat, Canister of 144
Contains 144 Flat brushes in sizes 4, 6, 8, 12, 16, and 24.

OK if you set your expectations realistically
from Boston, MA
Comments about Blick Economy White Bristle Canister:
These brushes are OK if you understand what they are and who probably should or shouldn't use them. I got a great price on a new 144-brush canister from someone that didn't need them and they do what I need them to do - which is to give me sloppy, unrefined, and inconsistent strokes, and literally be cheap enough for me to cut them up to make the strokes even more inconsistent. The best uses for these might be 1) advanced painters roughing in a backgrounds who don't want to wear out their better brushes, 2) beginners learning to paint in an abstract style where brush and edge control aren't important, or 3) for landscapes, seascapes, or any painting where you don't want consistent and repetitive strokes. It depends on your style and goals, but I would not recommend them for those that want brush and edge control; they're too cheaply made for that. After washing the factory applied starch out of the brush and allowing it to dry, they'll look like a cartoon character's hair after he/she/it stuck an appendage in a light socket. In other words, it won't be pretty and the coarse/uneven hairs will splay in random directions.I've painted long enough to know how to control a brush, and more importantly when to change to a better brush. They meet my expectations (as limited and minimal as they are) and I won't feel too bad when I cut them up to change their shapes. However, I would not recommend them for anyone that paints in a realistic and controlled style - again, unless they're serving a specific purpose. I'm not even sure I'd suggest that beginners use them - they're (the brushes) are just too wild and will frustrate those that want to learn edge control. Small children won't know the difference because everything looks like circles, sticks, or smiley faces, and really, who cares anyway? Recommended for special use only. Have fun cutting them up....

Not exactly what I was hoping for
By Miss JelC
from Hyattsville, MD
Simply you get what you pay for. These bristles spread out so wide, makes it hard to use for inexperienced painters. Now, it's too late to return them, so will have to get a more expensive type. I won't recommend these for persons without experience, they are hard to control...but if you want to add texture to your paintings, sure they are good for the price.
