"The brushes are so responsive, it makes painting a whole lot easier!"
In todays edition of Whats the Buzz, we're talking about a set of brushes every watercolorist own, the Rhapsody Kolinsky Sable Artist Brush Set! Each of the 5 brushes are made with the finest Kolinsky hair, which are bushy and responsive for great watercolor use. The set comes in a beautiful and stylish black and blue-violet case. Artists love these brushes: they're easy to use, responsive and springy and they are made from the highest quality so they last a long time.
Watercolor artists have also commented on how well the Kolinsky Sable brushes hold water extremely well. And in tests, they have proven to hold color extremely well. Each brush has chrome-plated brass ferrules and a long black polished wood handle. These classic, full English sized watercolor brushes have been a big hit for awhile now, and its time to hear about all the buzz is about from real people who use and love these brushes!
"With these sable brushes, I don't need to worry about loose hairs being left behind in my paint stroke! The #6 is now my 'go-to' brush; so well-crafted and easy to handle"-Etta, WI
"I consider myself a 4th year student so I use the brushes in watercolor exercises and 'tests' I give myself. I had only 4 Kolinsky's before, waited for astonishing sales and still spent far, far more than for these...but these are as good or better. The sizing is also generous."-Jane, CA
Jan from NC wrote us and said,"Gave these to an artist friend for Christmas and she has told me more than once how wonderful these brushes are and that she doesn't know how she ever painted without them."
"I use the brushes everyday and wonder how I got along without them in the previous years"-Marcia, OR
Marina from Columbia South Carolina left us a review on the Rhapsody Kolinsky Sable Artist Brush Set and rated the set at 5 stars and as a "must have". She writes, "The Rhapsody Red Sable brushes are fantastic, I got my set a few days ago, and finally got to test it out yesterday. I used the #8, which is the largest one in the set. Played with my watercolors. The brush surprised me at how much water it is able to hold. And the point is perfect. The tip can make up the thinnest line, without splitting. Just perfection. A great product and I highly recommend it to anyone."
Raven, another artist who rated the brushes at 5 stars described her experience this way: "I purchased these brushes because they were on sale for a set of Kolinsky Sable. I don't feel I will regret the purchase. I tried these brushes this morning and they work great. Water retention is good and they spring back to form with each stroke. On doing some tight detail with the #6, the brush stayed pointed and worked very well. I would definitely recommend this set of brushes to my artist friends."
One woman from Seattle, Jana, found a different use for the Rhapsody set. She discovered the real value and versatility of the brushes. She wrote to us saying, "This is the perfect set of Kolinsky brushes for acrylic nail art. It's hard to find high quality brushes for nail techs but these are absolutely perfect."
