Low Ratings are from User-error
These water brushes are great & reduce the mess of dipping the brush in & out of a water container.
All of the low reviews claiming it's leaky are from people who can't read directions properly.
If it's leaky & continuously drips, you're putting too much water.
It clearly says to notfill it all the way.
If the way keeps pouring out too much when you dip the brush / try to paint with it?
You're squeezing too hard or your grip is just not meant for this type of brush.
Just hold it normally without any pressure & voila.
No water drips.
I Love These Brushes!
I am new to water coloring as I decided to give it a try on some of my coloring pages to fill in larger areas. I've used them a few days now and they are working beautifully. The brushes slide easily and controbably over the paper even in smaller detail areas.
The brushes are very simple to use. Squeezing a minimum of water into the brush is the first thing I discovered as it doesn't take much to wet the paint. The water reservoirs hold enough to do a lot of painting without refilling. I've filled them one time and used them many times and they are still over half full.
I am having success with the various sized brushes and cleanup is a breeze. Just squeeze some water through the brush onto a cloth. So easy!
In the photo I painted the lighter shade on the wings, the clouds and the golden rays all with these brushes. I'm very pleased with these and excited about attempting some of my own designs.
Convenience, convenience and fun.
These are finicky to use, messy, use a lot of water, blend too much when you don't want them too. I love them though. They are fun. With these it a learning process and time. Don't expect to do a large area with a solid pigment like you can do with a brush these will wash out so expect to have art with light to dark and a lot of it. Like I said it adds uniqeness and I think people will either love or hate these, gearbest.com has a singe one of these for about three bucks or two bucks, but wait a month for shipping. What nice too with this set is it's all diefferent brushes to use. Brushes easily keep form and go back to perfect shape for storing and ez to clean just squeeze and wipe on paper towel, towel or napkin. Give em a shot if you got ten bucks to blow on something that could be a lot of fun or none, roll the dice, flip a coin but always be open minded. peace.
