Great brushes, holds generous amount of water and easy to handle. Oguz Kaan (Golcuk, Turkey) on 18 Nov 2017
These are excellent brushes for any watercolourist. They hold a huge amount of water, laying down a superb wash. Don't think you will be reproducing Alvaro's master pieces with these brushes, as he is the master, but you will not be disappointed. David Stingmore (Rochester, United Kingdom) on 26 Mar 2016
I only buy animal free and had been looking for a while for a good quality brush for washes etc. This set is perfect as there are 2 sizes of the brush I wanted and also a lovely smaller brush. Great quality and a great price. Love them Amanda Cooke (Chester, United Kingdom) on 8 Jun 2020
