Selected User Reviews For Princeton Best Synthetic Sable Watercolor and Acrylic Brush Round 8 (4050R-8)

This is the best Round 8 brush I've ever seen, and I believe that everyone who paints discovers that they have one
5/5

They have a favorite brush that they go back to time and time again. It's a number 8 round brush for me. This is the ideal round for a number eight. It's comfortable to hold, has a sharp point, and can hold a lot of paint. I own a Kolinsky sable brush that I purchased before learning how real sable brushes are made- This Princeton synthetic brush compares favorably to that sable brush in terms of quality, and there are no concerns about animals being harmed. I always purchase Princeton brushes whenever I need a new paintbrush. Never in my life have I been let down.

Watercolor Brushes that I Use the Most I've experimented with a variety of watercolor brushes (including other Princeton lines, Silver Brush, and Winsor & Newton)
5/5

I was overjoyed to discover these, as they've quickly become my favorite watercolor brushes. They're also great for gouache, but I have a separate set for that because the opaque paint is a little rougher on the bristles. br>br>These have a lot of spring and snap, and after a stroke, they return to their original shape. They don't hold as much water as some of their other lines, but that's ideal for my painting style and not a complaint. I use these for finer details and washes, and pair them with Princeton Aqua Elite round brushes and size 6 quill. br>br>I would also recommend these to beginners, but keep in mind that they are a firmer brush. I'd suggest the Princeton Aqua Elite or Princeton Neptune lines if you're looking for something a little softer.

Customer service is outstanding!! The Princeton Heritage brush set is fantastic! There was an issue with the brush's condition
5/5

They promptly refunded the price of the brush as well as the shipping charges. I worked on the brysh, and it's now ready to use. When I asked them to reclaim their refund, they told me to keep the brush and not to worry about the money. There was nothing more you could ask for. Highly recommended, and I will be purchasing from them again.

FOR THE PRICE, THIS IS A GREAT brush! This brush was fantastic, and it maintained its point, which is crucial! when you go to the store to purchase a watercolor brush Request that the brush be dipped in water, shaken out, and checked to see if it retains its point
5/5

This brush accomplishes this, and I would recommend ordering it online.

A fantastic watercolor brush
5/5

I used this brush to make a few quick strokes. I really like how it feels and how it looks. The brush has a lot of snap (which I like), holds its point well, and is extremely versatile.

Brushwork is fantastic
5/5

I went out and purchased a few more sizes right away. Holds a lot of water and is easy to keep sharp. It has a good snap to it without being stiff. Water and light glazes are very easy to control!.

It's a dream to use
5/5

The brush responds well to the pigment, the water, and the paper, which seems to make a big difference, especially when you're a beginner watercolorist.
