Details: I got these brushes as part of a larger set. However, I first felt like talking about the individual brushes. This set is ideal for those who are like butterflies with their artworks. If you are poly-talented, this is the ideal set. Also, if you are just curious and just sampling all styles of painting, this works just as well. The brushes have colors in the bottom to show what style the belong to. I hope you find them useful.
