These brushes are really quite good, there hasn’t been excessive shedding, there were one or two hairs popped out when I first started using them, but now after using them for a couple of weeks they have been fine. The No. 1 sized brush in this set comes to a really good point & has become my goto brush instead of using my Roymac No. 10 imitation sable round brush. These brushes hold a ton of water & paint, big washes are a breeze now. The only downside was the shipping it took 5 1/2 weeks to get to Australia & 1 week of that was sitting at the wharf waiting on australian customs clearance. But for $41 aud for three squirrel hair brushes I still think I did well with this purchase.
They hold so much water and paint, they are definitely a worthwhile upgrade if you’re using cheaper synthetic brushes like I was.
I’ve used them a few times now with minimal shedding so that’s a bonus! Some of my cheaper brushes shed a lot which has ruined a few paintings of mine. They also hold their shape well and you can get a variety of lines from them.
I’d definitely recommend these if you’re looking for good quality mop brushes.
They also come in a really nice box which would be suitable for a gift!
