I'm so happy with this brush set! All 5 brushes are useful and you cannot go wrong ordering this. The largest brush works like a charm for lotus leaves and since it holds so much water/ink, you can really work on the color variations. The other brushes are really good for their 'official' use: the happy dot brush makes great dots on plum flowers, the bamboo orchid brushes enables me to paint pretty orchid leaves and bamboo, and so on! All working wonders. My order arrived well packaged and everything is A1 quality!
Unfortunately, there are not a lot of reviews on BHA, but they seem to have been around for a while and I've utilized their youtube videos to get excited and get started with Chinese ink painting. I encourage anyone who reads this to leave a review if they purchase anything to help other people decide on purchases.
That being said. I LOVE THIS BRUSH SET! I've only been working with this medium and art style for about 2 months now, and previously used brushes from a chain store, and these brushes blow those out of the water! Just looking at the brushes I can see a visual difference with the brush heads. I can definitely tell a difference between the chain store brown weasel/wolf brush and the brush from this set. I can also definitely tell a difference between the white cloud brush/goat hair and the one from the chain store. So far I havent really had any brushes shed on me.
The thin line rat whisker brush seems to be really good for adding stamen to flowers. I was unable to do this with the chain store brush.
