Super classy set of quality brushes
Great quality brushes with fine points that hold up & hold water. Classy leather travel case can for several smaller brushes or you could fit a size 12 in but snuggly.
5Maybe not perfect, but close!
This wallet set is beautiful and practical in many ways. A main strength is that the points are fabulous, even in the larger sizes. Also a plus: the handles fit snugly open or closed (with a hole for drying), but all that metal is at a price - they are a bit heavy for my small hands. Perhaps they hold less water than some other fibers, but release well and are springy. I think they are a good value, and recommend them for travel. Limited for space in your to-go kit? With the fine point and control, you could take just a larger brush, assuming your hand wouldn't get too tired. I have used them without the handle, so that is an option too.
4Wonderful brushes and a great priceThis came in a nice gift box, the brush holder is leather and was wrapped in tissue paper. The brushes are wonderful. They have wonderful points and spring back. I think for the price they are a great buy.5Excellent brush!This brush was intended to be the replacement for my defective Da Vinci Cosmotop Spin (that I should've just returned). The bristles are incredibly beautiful and look very much like real hair. The handle is beautiful as well and has a comfortable shape. The versatil is a great brush for someone looking to work in casein or gouache, both of which are a bit harsh on natural hair brushes compared to watercolor. I have never owned a natural hair brush, but this brush could fool me. The water retention is great for this size, and much better than the average off brand 6 round that comes in a set of 12 for $8. The bristles come to a beautiful point with no noticeable imperfections every time.5Solid synthetic travel brushI've now tried both the size 6 and 8 versatil brushes. I think they carry most of the well known characteristics of synthetic brushes, and do them well. (Holds a nice fine point, has quite a bit of spring, loses water rather quickly) I wasn't blown away or anything, nor do they feel exceptionally "better" (as in being closer to a nature hair brush) than other synthetic brushes.As always, my only downside with synthetic brushes are they use up the water very quickly, and after 1 stroke or so, the brush is most likely already streaking. With these kind of brushes, I usually would intentionally really load up the water with the brush (and refrain from taking some water off the tip which I do habitually). Only then, can I get some larger washes going in one go.With the fine point and amount of spring, it's quite easy to control and get finer details.#8 definitely feels more versatile (no pun intended..) than #6. Since they lose water so quickly anyway, I think #8 is well capable of doing anything a #6 could do, AND on top of that, will be able to carry a bit more water for larger areas if needed. The barrels are the same size for both 6 and 8.The wooden part around the grip has a really odd, kind of repulsive smell. (I've purchased the 2 versatils from different sellers, and they both have the smell) The only way I could describe it is it reminds me of a rotting bone, or something old.Not very pleasant, but I could only smell it it was pretty close to the nose. I'm hoping it will go away after some months.. It feels like the smell is almost engraved into it; can't imagine it going away anytime soon.The cap posts very securely (at least for now, it is quite new). It does feel like it will get looser with use over time.The brush fits in the common 12 half pan metal travel palettes (photo)would've been 5/5 stars if just advertised as a travel synthetic brush."Synthetic kolinsky"- not so sure if I feel any difference..update (about half a month) - Good news, I've left them uncapped for the past half month or so, and I noticed the particular smell of the grip area has been significantly faded.update 5/3/19- I still own the brush; I still use it from time to time. I think I don't reach for it as often as my other brushes because of its overall weight distribution and my personal tastes.The barrel & cap have become looser when posting from usage (just a bit so far. the cap won't fall off by itself from being held upside down), so I have a feeling I will need to fix it up with a thin layer of tape soon.4Great travel or all around brushes
Great brushes and great for travel. Lots of absorption, good point, great price.
5BEST BRUSH I OWNThis should be an essential brush in every watercolor artists arsenal. Lovely, long hairs on this #10 rigger that mimic sable perfectly. Excellent for washes, main subjects, well, everything you paint actually. The long handle forces me to work quite loose, especially with florals, yet is perfect for up-close, detail work. I had the good fortune to discover this gem from the gifted artist, Angela Fehr. She works miracles with this beauty. (watch her youtube videos, esp on trees) It's extremely affordable and worth far beyond the asking price. It's sold as a rigger, but is marvelous for any kind of watercolor painting. Holds water well, the long hairs create floral petals almost on their own, lays down washes, excellent for fine point work. I wish all of my brushes in my ceramic vessel housed all Escoda brushes. A well-kept secret that I highly endorse.5FantasticThis is my new favorite brush. True to Escoda brushes, this comes to a great point, and holds lots of paint, and springs back nicely. I had sent back the first one because the cap did not stay on, which defeats the purpose of a travel brush. I reordered it from Amazon, and this new one is terrific! I even select it to paint at home, not just for travel.5Damaged in shipmentThe brushes look like they would have been great. I'm very unhappy that amazon decided to throw these (I bought both size 4 and size 10) into the box with a giant book and 6 other items. The brushes had no protective caps around the bristles. There was not even an attempt to even cushion or separate them - not even one bubble pack. You can imagine my immediate shock and displeasure to find them smooshed underneath the book and pressed up against the side of the box. I'm going to try to reshape them because the material looks to be very nice quality, but I'm not holding my breath.Update: I was able to reshape these after they were damaged in shipment. I would order these again but only if they ship completely separate.2Beautiful Brush For Worry Free TravelI already own two of the Escoda Reserva Kolinsky travel brushes. I wanted a size 8 for plein air painting but decided to try this instead. I'm paranoid about losing my sables while traveling or plein air painting so I thought the price point in this good enough to use it. For those purposes. It's a beautiful brush. I like the way the travel brushes feel compared to the standards. This one holds pleany of water and paint but is definitely not a Kolinsky. Still perfect for the purpose nice for washes, a bit stiffer than sable and a nice fine point that is capable of tiny detail. I'm an illustrator and fine detail ability is a must. If you prefer looser, softer painting you may not like the firm snappiness of this brush. If you are used to squirrel hair this is probably not the brush for you. I'm excited to put it in my go bag for spontaneous painting opportunities! You won't be disappointed with this brush. One word tho, Amazon stinks when it comes to packaging the brushes for mailing.vthey throw it in a bubble envelope with no protection. Not the way to treat something that is easily dented or broken. But so far the brushes I've ordered have arrived safely.5will need to use for awhile before giving honest opion
arrived on time well packaged leather case is 5 stars have only done swatches and one small painting i'll hold of commenting until I've put some mileage on them
This brush set is a great beginner set, though I would recommend getting additional flat, filbert, detail, etc. brushes as it is hard to paint an entire painting with this small selection.
5The best travel brush I've used so farAbsolutely fantastic travel brush for watercolor. This brush holds a lot of paint/water, has a nice fine point, holds shape very well, and feel great in the hand (looks great too!) I have a couple of different brands of travel brush, but this has become my favorite. I also like the Silver Brush brand, but they only come in limited sizes, where the Escoda come in a wider range. I plan of filling out my travel brush kit with a few more Escoda brushes as soon as my existing brushes of other brands begin to wear out.5I love this long-tipped, animal-friendly paint brush for watercolors & letteringI use synthetic brushes from several different brush manufacturers in my work. I'm am an artist and illustrator who frequently works with ink, watercolor and goauche. Recently, the Escoda Versatil has my favorite overall brush for watercolor and ink, as it just has this perfect balance between springiness and color carrying capacity. The performance is very close to that of a sable brush, but without the unnecessary animal cruelty and at a much more affordable price for the quality it provides. It's everything I want in a watercolor brush and nothing that I don't. Perfect!I use the rigger size 0 round I recently purchased on Amazon to paint long thin lines in some of my illustrations. It holds more paint than a short-tipped round of the same size, so I can make longer strokes before running out of paint. I tend to opt for shorter tipped rounds when working on fine details, but when I need longer strokes than they can provide, the rigger is my go-to. This is also an excellent brush choice when doing hand-lettering. That is a skill I am always working to develop and I think this brush makes that job easier for me. That's exactly what a good tool should do, right?I highly recommend the Escoda Versatil line for watercolor and ink painting (just ask me what I think of the travel brushes *drool*) and the size 0 rigger for painting long, fine strokes.As a side note, the Escoda Prado line is also excellent. It holds an excellent point (slightly better than the Versatil), at a trade-off of carrying a bit less paint. So, the Versatil brushes are usually my primary brushes, but I often mix in Prados when I'm painting fine details - something I do quite often.If you have any questions I can help answer, feel free to leave a comment below. :)5Nice, all-around synthetic travel brush setFor a synthetic brush, these are well made and hold a fair amount of water. The smaller brushes work well for me when doing fine lines. The case is well made and keeps the brushes together and provides extra protection. Would recommend if you are unable to get their sable version.5
