One of the many benefits of being an artist is that you are asked to review art supplies. After painting for many years in a variety of mediums, you quickly learn what to look for in good art supplies.
Recently I received a 15 piece art paint brush set by Everlasting Star. These synthetic bristle brushes can be used for Oils, Acrylics and Watercolor and come with a really cool pop-up stand carrying case that zips up to prevent brushes from sliding out.
The set includes a nice variety of Angle, Flat , Filbert and Round brushes that all have a very long handle (almost 12 inches) and are well labeled so you can see the numbers even when they are in the case.
- Angle Brush - Sizes 12, 10, 5, 2
- Fan Brush - Size 0
- Flat Brush - Sizes 11, 6
- Filbert Brush - Sizes 9, 4
- Round Brush - Sizes 8, 7, 3, 1, 1/0
- Rigger Brush Size 3/0
The brushes are coated with something to make them hold their shape. However as soon as you start using it, they have a nice bounce.
Since I paint a lot of pet portraits in oil, I decided to use them on a painting I am currently working on. The large brushes quickly loaded up with paint and the round brushes worked great in areas where I needed to work on details. Cleaning them was easy too and the brushes I used retained their shapes.
The brushes come in a very nice carrying case that has a loop. I liked this feature because the brushes can be hung on an easel when doing plein air painting. In the studio, you can also hang the brushes or prop them up on a flat surface by turning one side half way down and attaching it to the velcro on the back.
