I have been exploring with watercolors for about 3 years and have collected several brands and types of brushes. These are awesome!!! The water control is fantastic. I own another watercolor brush (with the water reservoir) that receives rave reviews, and it is great brush but to buy a 6 brush set of those would be very expensive. These are just as good and much more cost effective. NOTE: I recommend using distilled water in your brushes or storing them empty when not in use.
I just love these brushes. I am a beginner when it comes to working with different color mediums; however, as I have watched a lot of tutorials on water coloring and using the different mediums with water I've always thought that too much water was being used. I know that that is just my opinion but, I have achieved the results I wanted without drowning the color medium in water. These brushes give me the control I've always wanted. Love them.
