Given the price, this little box is definitely something..ideal for those new to acrylic. Definitely not Artist quality...but they will still work to your satisfaction. The little set has just enough colors to give whatever shade your mind can think of !! They came with 2 brushes, and like someone said above..."the ends fell off" but I put them to use anyways. As an artist, I am sure you will find your way to satisfaction with this Great Little Set !!
