Loving this brush. Only took 2 or 3 days to receive it. Using it with my watercolors on watercolor paper. I?m teaching myself but the brush is working great. It comes to a very sharp point. I?ve only used it for 3 days,but very impressed. I also noticed that when I clean it, it seems to release the watercolor much easier than my squirrel and synthetic blends do. I have to wash my other brushes several times before they r clean. I hang it to dry and it dries very quickly. Would definitely recommend it.
