Comments about Da Vinci Brushes Da Vinci College Synthetic Brushes:
I use these brushes for oil painting and love how they handle. They are nice and long allowing a wide range of control. The handle itself is a rough, almost untreated wood, but I love it. It feels really nice in your hands. They fibers are longer than most oil painting brushes that I use, but it isn't bad. I am never a fan of round brushes because they always loose their point, but these ones keep their point rather well. I don't really recommend the rounds for oil though as they absorb too much paint and with oils you need to use your brush more as a carving tool than a well (like for watercolors). I suppose that is my only complaint, but overall these are awesome paintbrushes.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Brushes were recommended for a relative beginner by a Blick rep. They were exactly what I needed.They work well with acrylics and clean easily.

A product of choice.
Best acrylic brushes!!
By The Blanc Canvas
I use these brushes in my wine and design classes. Holds paint really well. I find these brushes sell out really fast too. That's a little fustrating, especially when you can't find that quality anywhere else.
These are some awesome brushes!

I use these brushes for painting with acrylics. What I like about the brushes is that they a lightweight smooth feel to them. I can't find anything bad to say about these. Very inexpensive brushes for the great quality you get.
My "go to" brushes.....they're GREAT !
You wouldn't expect much from a "student" brush at cheap prices..BUT, these are my "go to" brushes. I use them specifically for oil painting (impressionist style). At these prices they are almost disposable but you'll be surprised at how long they hold up.
Great deal for Great Brushes!

Recommended by my art teacher and I love how they handle.

I am a Fine Arts student and these are the right brushes to paint with. My teacher recommended them and I am very happy with the way they handle.
