I am happy with my student value package except for one thing: the piston waterbrush leaks so bad it cannot be used as a waterbrush. I contacted BHA about this problem and they replied that I should plug the air vents with j b weld or crazy glue! To me this is not an acceptable resolution to this issue. As I replied: I should not have to alter or fix anything I purchase before I can use it.
P.S. After posting this review, Blueheron Arts sent me a replacement waterbrush at no cost and in a very timely mannar. I will happily continue to use Blueheron Arts for all of my Chinese brush painting needs
