Artist Paint Brush Set

I received the CubeCraft's Artist Paint Brush Set through a promotion.

Product Info:

  • Hand crafted
  • Includes: Filbert brush (sizes 9, 4), Angle brush (sizes 12, 10, 5, 2), Round brush (sizes 8, 7, 3, 1, 1/0), Flat brush (sizes 11, 6), Fan brush (size 0), and Rigger brush (size 3/0)
  • Bristles made of a mixture of fine, natural looking, and synthetic filaments
  • Works with oil paint, acrylic paint, watercolor paint, gouache paint, and face paint
  • Delivers an even coat 
  • Long handles help designed for balance and comfort 
When I first received the product, I noticed that there was a few issues with the case the paint brushes came in. The case helps protect the brushes from getting any damage to them when they're stored. The zipper is quiet and works well except in one corner of the case. This one corner keeps popping open when the case is zipped shut. 

 There's also an issue with one of the strips on velcro on the inside of the case that holds down the flaps that paint brushes are stored on. The threading was undone upon receiving the product or came undone on the first time the flap was unvelcroed.

The issues with the case has no affect on the actual paint brushes.

The case allows you to unvelcro the flaps that the paint brushes are on and velcro them to a strip that's in the middle. It allows the brushes to be pointed upwards. They're much easier to grab this way once you're already painting. It helps avoid getting the other brushes or the case dirty if you have paint on your hands.

The brushes are very soft. I love that set comes with all the different sizes and styles of brushes!

The long handles do feel very nice to hold and provide a balanced hold. The bigger brushes feel more natural to hold than the smaller brushes do. My favorite brushes to use in this set is the flat and angled brushes.

Cleaning the brushes is a breeze. I had a bowl of water to help rinse the brushes after using them to make it easier to clean later. I used soap and water to get these brushes cleaned. They only took a few minutes to clean all of them.

I didn't have any watercolor, oil, gouache, or face paint to try these brushes with. They did work wonderful with acrylic paint.

Check out these paint brushes on Amazon or CubeCraft's website.
