This set (of 2nds!) have been aboard for over a year and are now my fav brushes. Great for going out on deck to paint a sketch of a lovely sunset when at anchor, or ashore to capture a lighthouse scene ( one or 2 of these brushes, with my mint tin of paint & bits of paper, are small enough to fit in a pocket under a lifevest when dinghying or kayaking ashore). Soft & responsive, good for detail, and are well protected as travel brushes with the handle-case. I use the 2 & 4 mostly as my typical paper size is 4 x 6 or smaller. The surface of the handle-cases are holding up (fun cheetah spot pattern!) and only one brush has developed a wiggle when in the handle-after a year + of bouncing around in the boat & my art bag & lots of briny air. I do make sure I let the brush dry out fully before storing for any length of time (as I do my non-travel brushes). This was my first set of travel brushes, honestly my first set of really good brushes, and I'm so glad I found these - now that we're back in port and on terra firma for a while I find I'm using these brushes as often as my regular brushes. As 2nds the case wasn't included, but I already had a travel art bag and these fit in very well. Perhaps not perfect, with a stray hair, imperfect finish, or wiggly in the handle, but I'm very pleased and enjoy using them.
My first sable brushes. Well, all my others have gone into retirement. Except a large flat and a dagger. These feel good, hold water, hold a great point, and look good! An art supply trading friend told me she'd bring these to a paint out. She's never steered me wrong about supplies. So I ordered a set. Seconds? Can't find a flaw. Thanks so much for my new best tools. Note: I have a fabric eyeglass case with a velcro flap. I folded the bottom up about an inch and secured it with handstitching. Perfect case for all six.
These brushes are a joy to use. They perform better than my red sable from Rosemary & co.
Thank you Jennifer!
That's kind of you to say. We're excited they're working out so well for you. Keep on painting!
These brushes have no imperfections that I can find, and I've really looked! They hold water and reshape to a point very well. The price for 6 travel brushes was reasonable, too!
We're excited they're in your hands. Glad you found them to your liking and we're looking forward to seeing some of your adventures in watercolor! Thanks, Kim.
