I received these brushes and was happy with how soft they were. However I have just tried using them to hand paint a hand printed 35mm film image and the brush hairs have fallen out almost instantly and imbedded themselves in the image destroying a days work. I wasn’t expecting much for a cheap price but the amount of hair loss in such a short space of time is ridiculous.
Lovely soft brushes that have suffered little or no hair loss so far. I use mine for oils as I prefer a soft brush and these are perfect for the job. Would definitely buy them again if I needed a second set (can never have enough brushes ... right ?) and the price is very affordable. All in all a very satisfying purchase.
Excellent quality brushes. I’m using them for scale models and diorama painting and these are perfect for large area base coating and dry-brushing. Even though dry brushing tends to reduce the useful life of the brush these appear to be up to the challenge and I’ve seen no sign of wear yet.
I'm using these brushes for watercolour. They are my main brushes so I've been using them a lot. It might be that the wide brushes are more useful for other mediums, but I find for watercolour they tend to split into multiple points so don't give an even brush stroke. I mainly use one just to get the paper wet. However the thinner brushes I've found really useful. They've kept their points and apply colour and moisture really well. I'd have liked an even thinner brush included in the set for really find lines, and maybe less of the wide ones, but overall I think this product has been good value for money for me, and might be even better in other mediums.
Each brush is marked with it's size to make it easy to remember for beginners when getting started into painting. Synthetic bristles are easy to clean and are animal cruelty free (not fact checked but assumed). The back side of the package provides a step by step "Instruction For Use And Care" list on how to use, wash and store brushes. There is also an email address and website for further information. This was intended for my 3 year old daughter but I might just keep them for myself. Thank you, CRAFTS 4 ALL!
Only used 2 brushes so far, very good value for a whole set. I'm new to this so not sure what they all do really so it might be helpful to have names of each brush on there so that I can research what they do. However they seem good quality. The hairs on the brushes are quite temperamental though, but a bit of time and effort gets the like new again. I'm excited to try out all brushes. Thanks.
The brushes were well packaged, each contained a string loop that prevented the ends from being damaged in transit. The hair is soft and flexible, and keeps its shape very well. I've only used them for what I bought them for - basing brushes for miniature painting, and they've done a great job so far, applying a smooth coat with minimal brush marks left on.
I've bought these for a friend as a gift, and I'd buy them myself again if they last a while longer, as I haven't had them long enough to say whether they'll stay as good as they are now.
I got these to paint rocks with the kids & they’re great quality. My eldest daughter is doing art A level so I have bought many paint brush sets over the years & have paid a lot more in the past for brushes that aren’t as good as these. No loss of bristles, really easy & quick to clean & fast delivery. Highly recommend & will definitely be buying from this seller again
Great speedy service from this business. Fantastic value for money and just what I needed for a few oil paintings.
I used to paint years ago and studied art in college but due to having to grow up, enter the real world and get a dull job in a bank I stopped painting =(
After a stressful time at work and home I slipped in to a deep depresstion and thought I'd take up painting again which has helped me massively. I'd advise anyone to just pick up a brush and start painting and great quality, inexpensive brushes like these are a good place to start!
Just used these brushes for the first time now. They are fantastic quality and a good range of sizes. Am using them for acrylic paints and get a good smooth covering and easy to wash after. Fast delivery and well packaged
