Princeton Neptune Fine Watercolor Brushes is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 14.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome brush! I love this quill brush so much I wish I had it in other sizes. I also have the 6, which is actually really huge. It holds a TON of water & paint. The brush maintains a fine point so you can paint fine lines with it. I love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I can't not say enough great things about this brush! Purchased this awesome brush couple of months ago. I am so happy i did. It holds water and pigment forever. I can manipulate the bristles to create wonderful effects and with a dip in water and flick of the brush, get back to a perfect point. I can do a complete painting with just this brush. I painted many paintings with this brush over the last couple of months and it performs as it did when I first used it. Oh, was the gum arabic off before you use it. The sticky gum arabic is the same binder in the watercolor paint and is used to hold the bristles form. Just mentioning in case new painters (as I once was) may not know to wash and condition a brush first :) I can't wait till I can afford to purchase the whole line of these brushes. I am sure this brush will last forever. It can take abuse an is a workhorse in my little studio !

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A Good Brush I have been learning watercolor for several months. Princeton's Neptune line had a number of recommendations for a beginner or intermediate artist. The first #10 round that I bought made a very wide "thin" line. On close examination of the bristles, I could see that a number of the hairs on the outside of the body were above the cut to form the tip. I mangled the brush in trying to fix it. So, I bought a second #10 and the bristles seem more evenly and properly trimmed. It also can make a somewhat fine line. I'd say fro the experience that Princeton is inconsistent in its bristle trimming.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The sane brush purchase for water-based media The first great art tool I ever owned was a large squirrel-hair watercolor brush given to me by one of my high school art teachers. Lasted years. Replacing it cost above $50. The next time I bought an amazing brush it was a large Japanese calligraphy brush mounted in an animal horn handle, and I paid a couple hundred for it. Great brushes cost over the top. But much of what we do with brushes is grunt work, and it's a shame to waste a good brush on that. Neptune brushes are the pawns in the water-based media game. They start out fine, with a good shape, nicely formed tip, flexible, absorbant. They wear out at a moderate speed, not too quickly but don't expect one you're using daily to go longer than a month without serious loss to the hair ends. In two months it's a stub. But the cost is what makes it work. For the serious strokes, go for top-dollar sables, squirrel-hairs, marmots, whatever. For day-to-day grunt work, stock up on Neptunes. I use Neptunes almost every day. Find examples of my work below and at billgusky.com.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Thirsty Brushes! I have the full set of these and I like their thirst! They hold great amounts of water and come to a perfect point ! I teach classes and these are brushes we work with in the classroom. The students learn good control and use of water with practice from these brushes

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great brush - delivers without breaking the bank! Great brush - it holds a good amount of water and pigment and the tip comes to a nice point for tighter details. The size 10 is a great medium-size brush and can hold enough water for washes, but also has a good amount of control. This a nice introduction to finer quality brushes without breaking the bank.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best watercolor brush ever! I purchased a #6 round Neptune brush for watercolors. It has a large, soft belly to hold a lot of paint yet has a very fine point - enough to do calligraphic work. Hard to believe this is synthetic; it performs so well. This is the Cadillac of brushes! Would love the same synthetic brush in a 1" angle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great brush! I picked up this brush and felt like I've used it all my life. It holds an amazing amount of water and has a good responsive point. I've used many brushes over the years and find that this one handles so easily. It's my favorite go-to brush now for most of my painting.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best I've used a few watercolor brushes before but these give pinpoint accuracy in application and a smooth laydown. They're phenomenal - highly recommend.
