Super long handles and the worst wild hairs on a pricey set of brushes. I did wash and press to reshape but had to resort to scissors for almost each one. They are nice brushes and i love the pop up case. The fan brush will have to be tossed as it is both separated and wile bristles every which way. I wet n starched it but this one seems put together wrong. Luckily i have another fan brush.

... a beginning oil painter so and I know that good brushes can be very expensive
I am a beginning oil painter so and I know that good brushes can be very expensive. I decided to get this set because it looks to be good value and the company is very responsive to issues. The variety in the set gives me an opportunity to learn which shapes I enjoy working with the most. The problem I have with the brushes is that when I load the flat brushes up with paint the bristles separate. I can see why it is necessary to pay for good brushes. These are working fine for now but won't be satisfactory for long.
The brushes arrived in great condition and I like the holder.

Not as Shown
I thought I was purchasing the brushes shown, but I received what appears to be hog hair brushes. Stiff, cheap, and not at all for watercolor. The handles are loose on several brushes as well.

Nicer than I was expecting.
I got these on sale for face painting.... Didn't realize they were so large or so nice! They're great quality. The box they came in was classy and looked great and the carrying case is nice, too. I'm really happy with these. The brushes are great! My face painting skills could use some work.

Royal, Regal, beautiful...nuff respect!!!
This brush set was ordered on appearance and sales blurb alone! Now for the wait to see if they live up to it. Firstly: I was as impressed with the presentation upon opening these beauties. Secondly: I washed some of them and dried them; just to see how the bristles would behave thereafter, impressed!!! Thirdly: I am a little reluctant to start working with them just yet, as I am still enamored with the presentation case and the set. So you'll just have to wait a while until I start to use them. Then, I'll make a full and frank report, for better or worse. In the meantime though I am showing them off to my artist friends and bragging about being one of ARTSCAPE'S loyal customers, and doing my best to spread the good words.

These brushes are amazing. I've only used them twice so far
These brushes are amazing. I've only used them twice so far, but they are better than any other brushes I have ever had. I knew as soon as I opened the box that I was getting something great. With all my other brushes, (and granted I have only bought lower to mid range brushes) the ferrules have been flimsy, and the hairs themselves have been askew and hard to keep in the brush while oil painting. These hold up like a dream. Every hair is in its place, they are well-balanced, and they are very easy to take care of. I'm considering buying another set or two for watercolor and acrylic.

Not for oil, not for pros, not for hobby
The brushes looked nice, unfortunately looks mean nothing. The material used to make the brushes is cheap and brittle. The brushes broke, lost heirs, and did not keep the shape. I was not really expecting much and got even less.
Just skip this product, the only thing I still use is the case.

to the sturdy, zippered adjustable brush case and
Five enthusiastic thumbs up! This product far exceeded my expectations - from the classy black and white box tied up with a white ribbon and accompanying Thank You tag in the shape of an Artist's Pallet, to the sturdy, zippered adjustable brush case and, last but not least, the amazing brushes. I was so in awe upon first opening the package, that I just sat there staring at those brushes.They are everything I hoped they would be and more. Based on the quality of these brushes alone, I quickly ordered the My Artscape 12 piece detail brushes and have added their oil paints to my wish list. One happy customer and counting!

Nice Gift to Myself
Extremely well packaged in a gift box suitable for jewelry. The case and the brushes are very good quality and the brushes are a nice variety. I am a beginner, so my opinion might not matter that much, but the brushes seem very well made, no loose bristles, they clean up well (used for acrylic paint), and I think the case is worth $20 all by itself.

So far so good
So far i love the texture and feel of these. I'll see how they last after I've had them awhile. I love the purple case they pops up.
