I'm a total beginner but have had some great results with these pens. No leaks and happy painting.
These brushes are so handy! I have a couple of small round waterbrushes like these for traveling (Pentel and Sakura brands, both of which are quality brushes, too), and I really wanted some different sizes for working on larger paper. The variety of brush tips that come in this set are really great to work with. My favorite thing about these is that when using them there isn't any need for dirty water cups to mistakenly drink out of! XD
So far I haven't had any issue with these brushes. They have clear/white nylon fiber bristles, like my Pentel and Sakura brushes. Unlike my Pentel and Sakura brushes, these take a bit more squish to get water out of the brush, but it's something I feel I can overlook and doesn't affect my work.
Nice set of brush pens
Got these as a gift for my art loving friend. She loved them. Great product at a good price.
Very easy to clean. Great quality, amazing fine points.
Definitely handy to not have to keep dipping brushes to paint.
These are definitely neat water coloring brushes. Be aware, in case it wasn't obvious, that paint colors do not come with the brushes. You'll need to use your own water-soluable paints for using these.
In case it isn't obvious, the pens themselves are hollow on the inside. You fill up the pens with the water temperature of your choice. Then you put the brush in the paint color and press a button to release some of the water into the paint and bravo! You now have a color!
I've found that they're reduced the amount of water mess that I usually have after using water-soluable paints. Since all of the water is contained in the brush, it means a whole lot less water all over my surfaces.
The different brush thickness and designs will help pick out the brush type you want. If you put the brushes back in the original case after you're done, the plastic sleeve has a brush guide that shows examples of the different brushes to make it easy to select the one you need.
Pretty good brush! Makes watercoloring a bit cleaner!
Good quality. Sweet gift for artist on your list.
All I can rate this product on is my initial perception of the product. They will be a Christmas present to my son who is the artist. I will update this review as soon as I get feedback from him.
These really take the best ideas from an innovative point of view and blend it with the classic essential basics you want in a paint brush. The super thin nylon brush fibers feel very nice and consistent compared to horse hair or natural hair paint brushes. The tips stay in shape after use and seem to let go of the water easier since it is synthetic. The innovation extends into the handle itself, where you can store water for quick application into pigments for watercolor, or actually mix the paint/dyes and put them into the handle itself. When you need more color or water, just give it a gentle squeeze and it applies directly into your brush, giving you easy control and quick access rather than dipping and mixing. Easy to clean synthetic nylon makes it a breeze and 6 sizes to tackle all your needs.
