The brushes themselves are of beautiful quality, not only in appearence but also in use. With all different verieties of thickness and shapes, these brushes should help you evolve your skills/technique. However the seller must be informed that these brushes are fairly thick, and from a personal experience, id buy an additional pack with smaller & thinner brush heads for that extra bit of detail. These brushes are really good quality, and the price I must say is just right. Be careful when using oil paints with these brushes however, i recommend buying an Oil Paint Dilutant and Brush Cleaner before using these brushes with oil paint.
