Paint Brushes – 15 Pc Art Brush Set for Watercolor, Acrylic, Oil & Face Painting – Long-handle Artist Paintbrushes with Travel Holder (Hot Pink) & Free Gift Box | 1 Year Warranty

Review from Jeannie’s Product Reviews

This arrived well packed along with some other items in a secure box.

As an artist I’m always interesting in art equipment so was delighted to get these for review.

These brushes are long handled. Its personal preference whether you prefer long or short and of course for travel short is better but for the studio I prefer long handles. They just seem to balance better. There’s a good variety of brushes here, from fan, angled and square tips to the versatile round shape. the case containing them is excellent, being sturdily constructed and easy to open.

I like that the tips of the rounds ones come easily to a point making them excellent for sharp lines and definition. That’s very important. The angled and square ends gave a good sharp outline, and all the brushes picked up the paint well. As with anything you get what you pay for, and these aren’t going to be as good as pure sable brushes that can cost as much as this set ( or more!) for just one brush, but for most artists these are excellent value and produce very decent quality results. I use watercolours and keep my very few sables for those, never for oils or acrylics because they can be hard on brushes, especially if like me you tend to work large and use texture.

I’ve shown on a chart some quick ad hoc  experiments I did with these with watercolour paint against my round sable brush and a good quality square end brush, and you can see there’s very little difference. ( To be fair my brushes have also been heavily used and the sable is showing signs of wear at the tip). I’d be happy to use these brushes for my artworks.

The sellers also gave me some useful brush care FAQ.

Q: What should I do when I get my set?
A: Always wash your brushes with warm water and a mild soap before using them for the first time. The brushes are coated with a water-soluble treatment for their protection during transit. Washing them will remove the coating and prepare them for their first use.

Q: How should I clean my brushes?
A: Wipe off excess paint from the brush using a towel or rag
Rinse off the remaining oil paint with odourless thinner or mineral spirits.
Rinse off the remaining acrylic/watercolour paint with lukewarm water and mild soap.
Repeat washing and rinsing the brush until the water runs clear.
Shake or wipe off excess water.
Using your fingers, gently reshape the brush head back into its original form.
Dry the brush, handle and ferrule by using a brush stand or the provided holder. Then store them in the holder.

Q: How can I lengthen the lifespan of my brushes?
A: Always clean your brushes immediately after use.
Never allow paint to dry on the brushes.
Never leave the brushes soaking in water for a long time.
Never stand the brushes on their heads.

Paint Brush Set – 7 Travel Brushes for Acrylic, Oil, Watercolor, Gouche and Plein Air Painting – Ultra Short Handle – Professional Artist Carry Case – 1 Year Warranty – Art Supplies by MyArtscape™ (Black)

Review from Jeannie’s Product Reviews

This arrived well packed along with some other items in a secure box. As an artist I’m always interesting in art equipment so was delighted to get these for review.

Handy little travel set containing seven versatile brushes. The holder is sturdy and there’s also a wipe clean out holder for keeping everything dry if you’re outside and the rain starts. BTW rain adds some interesting effects to watercolours, one of those “happy accidents “ I discovered. Learn by doing is my motto AKA the trial and error method! Add in one of those pocket paint box sets and a small paint pad and you’ve everything you need to paint “plein air”.

Paint Brush Holder – Organizer with Space for 15 Long Handle Brushes – Premium Art Supplies by MyArtscape (Black)

Brushes can be very expensive so whether you’ve bought a set from suppliers like MyArtscape, or like me have amassed an individual collection over time you want to take the best care of them. This organiser allows them to be kept securely protecting those important brush ends, and being made of a breathable material ( feels like heavy cotton) helps stop mould developing. It comes in a choice of colours and is very good value. The case itself is very robust, well finished and with a sturdy zip closer and looks very durable. It can be adjusted when in use to set the brushes up an an angle ready to select each one. Its also a good idea ( IMO) if possible to leave them out like this for a couple of hours after painting to let them dry thoroughly. Brushes cost and need taking care of.

About jeanniezelos

I'm an avid reader, love my kindle and I have my head in a novel for hours daily : ) Mum used to say I'd read toilet paper if it was printed- it wasn't, so i had to contend myself with the back and sides of the cereal packets. I've always Needed to read and we had few books when i was a child hence my penchant for reading anything including adverts then... I review mainly contemporary, erotic and paranormal romance books though dystopian and urban fantasy also appeal. I'm currently rated around the 300 mark on amazon.co.uk for my reviews. I try to keep them structured and to say what I do and don't like about a book so other readers can use my review as a guide to whether they may enjoy the book.
