This product is simply adorable! Delivery was prompt and I am very happy with it!
- Barbara South in Sun City Az
These brushes are exactly the perfect brush for fine detailing. Stiff and with a good spring that make a super fine line. I use them with acrylics for the fine hairs on my pet portraits and the thin tree branches on my landscapes. They were a great price and I will definitely order them again. You can’t go wrong.
