  • Great brush - Great price

    I use this whole range of brushes. The brush holds a good amount of water and keeps a sharp point thru the whold painting session. The quality is excellent as well as the price.

  • One of the best

    One of the best brushes I have ever used. Made for watercolors but excels at acrylic/miniature work. Stays smooth, fine control, and keeps a sharp tip for detail work.

  • A suprise hit for cartooning like it over W&N series 7

    Reviewed on 8/26/2014

    As reviewed by jim jackle

    I am by no means a professional or advanced cartoonist but I do a lot of it. I've been using brush markers and keep going thru them. Of course markers seem to slowly (almost unperceptively) loose intensity or density. And the tips starts getting mushy and loose their stiffness. Next thing you know, your hard work looks like crap. I was looking for Windsor & Newton series 7 at Blick and they didn't have them. The saleslady said they just got these and a few customers like them for cartooning. AND THEY ARE 1/10th the price. So I got a few of the smaller ones and took them home. I didn't spend more than $25 for a whole fistful. Man are they great. Then I thought to go ahead and get a few W&N series 7 (1, 2 & 3) because they have to be better. WRONG. I am a bit of a masher; I have no light touch with a brush, pencil, keyboard, or anything. W&N is way too flexible and hard to control for me. I can't control the line weight. So I went back to the Ultrecht 228 #2 and fell in love again. I use Sumi ink because I love the density (and it's not waterproof). The brush can go dry and I can clean it. It keeps a constant, snappy line and glides smoothly. Give 'em a try. For an average of $3.50 or less you can experiment. They can take the abuse. They are like the Timex or Ford Taurus of brushes. Let me know what you think!
