Plan to expand my tools with more of these brushes

Comments about Silver Brush Black Velvet Square Wash Series 3008:
Likewise with the rounds, these Silver Brush Black Velvet brushes are great. Even a winner like myself can tell the difference between these and other brushes in the same price range. I intend to expand my tools with more of these fine brushes.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

These are my go-to water color brushes. I pick up a new one whenever I make a big order from Blick's. It is my present to myself.

i have confidence in my brushes, which transfers to me.
from san pedro
The brushes hold their shape, have a healthy spring, and roll with confidence. They hold water well. I first discovered these brushes on sale (90% off) 20 years ago. It was love at first paint (there are a lot of not so great brushes out there.) A relative found and destroyed the brushes. I have waited many years to resume watercolor painting again. Like a recently single woman, I went searching for my first true love, Black Velvet paint brushes. The magic was still there. <3 The prices are much more reasonable than as I remembered them; they were handmade in England at first. Now they are made in Sri Lanka. They are still fantastic paint brushes. Considering my income and that I'm putting myself through school, these brushes don't force me to choose between food or art. I would and do absolutely recommend these paint brushes. Take care of them and they will take care of you. And stay away from cheap watercolor paints and cheap papers. I've tried being the über-frugal painter and it kept me from really being able to explore and embrace the magic of watercolor. Practicing with bad supplies isn't really practicing. Happy painting :0)

I am a relative newbie when it comes to watercolors, but the Silver Black Velvet brushes were recommended to me by numerous other, more experienced artists. I usually use round brushes, but decided to give the square a try. Very nice spring and holds water well. Nice brush for the price!

Was advised by my Master watercolor teacher to buy several of the Silver Brush Black Velvet brushes as "the set to work with". She was SO right - GREAT value for brushes that hold both the paint and their shape extremely well. Comfortable handles and LOVE the black color that hides permanent color paint stains. HIGHLY recommend, especially for beginners - great value for the price.
Best brush ever
from Santa Fe, NM
I use this brush for watercolor painting. It holds lots of water and pigment and puts it on the paper with unfailing smoothness and control. It points beautifully and does everything you could expect from the very best brushes.

Silver Brush Black Velvet Square Wash
By Paper Daisy
The brush I bought loses hairs every time I use it! It also doesn't seem to hold water very well so I find I'm constantly re-loading it. Wouldn't recommend it.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
