Disclaimer: Thanks to the lovely people at art supply central for sending me this Artist Brush set. There was no monetary exchange.
I will start this post by declaring I am not an artistic person, that gene was only given to my little sister it definitely skipped me and my brother. So my review will purely be my thoughts on how the brushes were packed, how they felt in hand and the quality. I must also mention that I gifted them to my sister who has a few words to say about the brush set. I should also say that when I received them I thought they were make-up brushes except they were too long for makeup brushes but the shape and style made them look like makeup brushes.
A bit about Art Supply Central.

When the brushes arrived I was really amazed at how beautiful the travel pack for the brushes were and I think this led to my initial confusion on whether the brushes were for makeup or for painting. I loved the travel case they came it, smooth black in colour and red writings.
The Brushes were long, strong and really pretty again another confusion for me because when I loved at my real technique brushes they looked the same shape but just extra long. I can see why they would be nice to hold and paint with but like I said I am not artist or painter. I loved that they were two colours and the brown ones were my favourite I think they are really pretty plus they included an extra brush in a transparent kind of colour.
The brushes were really strong and I think that’s what convinced me that they were definitely not for the face. When I grip some to do a pretend paint, they felt great in my hands and long enough I think any painter would love them and you got 2 of each type. They feel great in the hand and look even pretty.
My sister’s thoughts:
Paint brush review: Really smooth brushes very good for learning to paint or for someone who’s confident with painting. The set of 13 offers a wide selection so you don’t feel restricted to a certain brush. The brown brushes a very good for smooth lines and the white ones are great for creating texture with. That’s not to say that’s how you should use them use them however you wish. You can use the paint brushes for either canvases large pieces of art or just in your sketchbook good for fashion illustrations.
Paint brushes don’t stain beyond the colours you using, also they wash out very well you don’t have to worry about stains.In the image above you will see that I have used the number 2 paint brush. The paintbrush remain intact. the brush itself is very smooth to the handle.
The brush is very easy to wash I have found that it takes the paint very well.
I definitely recommend buying these precious because they’re very good. You can use them however you wish to whether it is for smooth Lines order or texture like I have let you in a lot Van Gogh out really.
