The brushes in this set have long handles.
I have bought three sets of these recently off KB. I have used these brushes for years and although I have paid much more money for just a single brush, none of them match these Pro Art Series C for longevity. When new they tend to 'shed', so I wash them three times in soap and water, NOT detergent like washing up liquid, this will stop it.
They will stand up to anything you throw at them including scrubbing-in under washes and still reatain their shape if washed properly; in fact they seem to improve and become thinner and really responsive.
Finally, their handles are just a little bit shorter than most oil brushes and they fit perfectly into the Pochade Boxes on this website; I have the large box and they fit no prob. David Molloy (Rossendale,, United Kingdom) on 4 Sep 2013
Very good quality brushes at an excellent price. Gerald Marsland (King's Lynn, United Kingdom) on 15 May 2015
I am using these brushes to paint with acrylic onto wood. I would say they are decent brushes, but what I am painting is fairly intricate (it is a carved mask, which I will be painting patterns on). So far I have only done blocks of colour but even then I have found it awkward to stay in the area I want to paint with these brushes, even using the very smallest one.
I imagine that on paper or canvas they would be great, but for what I am doing I need something with more of a point, I think. I'm no professional so I am not too sure on this, I still need to buy some different brushes and try them out! Louise Carroll (Brighton, United Kingdom) on 16 Sep 2012
Ken Bromley's replies: The detailed work would probably be easier with the Pro Arte Acrylix brushes. See the PA10 brush wallet set.
