I purchased the Pro Arte Renaissance sable brushes specifically for fine minature painting.

The brushes arrive well secured in a plastic wallet which is more than adequate for safe storage. Two of the larger brushes contain transparent tip protectors but unfortunately the three smaller brushes did not. Seeing as these are the more fragile brushes, it's a shame they do include tip protectors also.

The first thing I noticied was the length of the brushes seem about an inch longer than regular brushes and have longer bristles also. I have not found this to be an issue and the brushes are well balanced, fitting the hand nicely.

Construction appears to be of a high standard with a lovely dark green and gold finish. I am not sure what sable these brushes are, but they don't appear to be Kolinsky sable. At this price point I would not expect them to be either. The sable is of good quality though and the brushes hold paint well, keeping a fine point at all times. I have noticied that one brush did have a stray bristle which is a shame, but this was easily trimmed.

For the price point these brushes appear to be good value. I have found them perfectly adequate and to perform well. Comparing these to other brushes I have, I would say they are the best value by a margin.

My only preferred brushes are Winsor & Newton Series 7, but they are an unfair comparison due to the vast price difference.

A great value brush set for both beginners and intermediate users.

Bought as a gift for an artist friend. Loved the product quality. Expensive but worth it for Sable.

only two brushes with internal plastic covers- although all the brushes are in a case- no damage though and good value for the price.

The brush set is as described but I would have liked to have known about other, cheaper brushes in the range. They are probably too good for the purpose I have in mind.
