I am so impressed by these brushes that I’m placing my 2nd order right now. They have a superior density and the variety of shapes and cuts is, well, cutting edge! I am in love with the fan brush for painting spindles. It took me half the time to do that tedious job. It holds a respectable amount of paint and it is super easy to push and pull your paint where you need it to go. I’ve been painting furniture for 6 years and have tried so many brushes on the market and I am very well pleased with these brushes. They clean up very well without shedding bristles. I’ve used them with paint, stain and glaze and they are superior in every way to anything I’ve used for half the price.
