Welcome to dickblick
Da Vinci Russian Blue Squirrel Brushes are significantly longer and larger than other brands, and are ideal for mop and wash techniques, for priming, and for area work. The majority of the brush shapes in the line are made from pure Russian Blue Squirrel hair.
The Round and Flat Wash brushes contain a mixture of Russian Blue Squirrel hair and a synthetic fiber that imitates Squirrel hair. The particular attributes of this natural and synthetic hair mix includes its water-holding and paint-holding capacity, making it especially ideal for water media. The Rounds are perfectly suited for painting flowers and blooms.
Large sizes are available in every series.

These brushes are amazing. I use them for watercolor, but they would also work great for gouache, ink, etc. The brush is very well made, the handle has a gorgeous finish on it, and the casing around the hair is one piece, making the brush very durable. It holds a tremendous amount of water for its size (mine is size two) and the bristles do not stain. The only thing that bothers me a bit is that the wire securing the casing sticks out just a bit so when I go to wipe off excess water the wire end gets caught on the towel. This doesn't effect the brush performance, just something I noticed. Overall, a very nice high quality brush. Worth the money!

I was disappointed with this brush.
As an returning watercolor painter I find this brush comparable to local craft store products. The bristles don't hold much water and lose their stroke (if that makes sense). I would not buy this brand again.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Wonderful for Silk Painting

I like the way these brushes hold lots of pigment and water. They seem durable so far, and the bristles do not come out. Great for painting on silk!
