This is a nice little set of art brushes. As of now, these are the only paint brushes that I use. The photos I took show you how much usage I have given them. I personally use them for acrylics. The retain a lot of paint. I also water the acrylics down to turn them into watercolors. The brushes also work well on other surfaces. I used these brushes to paint that ceramic figurine. The short handle works well for me. I have the habit of painting a bit too close to the canvas. I tend to stain my hands a lot when painting.
