Many of the brushes have bristles that are stuck together right out of the package. Some of the brushes are warped and the wood is pretty low quality. I'm hoping some alcohol will dissolve whatever is gumming them up, but I'm not too hopeful.
Basically, the price seems too good to be true because it is. Save your money and buy some brushes that are useable.
I use these paint brushes for both glass etching, and t-shirt making. I use Amour Etching cream to etch glasses as gifts. The sponge brushes are perfect for sponging the etching cream on the glass but it does a great job at not getting the etching cream under the edges of the stencil. Additionally, I use the sponge brushes to paint on t-shirts with special fabric paint. The sponge brush allows the paint to go on evenly without applying it too thick. Also, it doesn’t leave any brush strokes or bristles in the paint. I’ve also given these to children to paint with so if they get messed up, I don’t really mind as this comes with 25 brushes!
Overall, this is a great deal as long as you’re not expecting professional type equipment. These are basic brushes that you can use for everyday and kids type crafts. If you expect more, you will be disappointed. For its price though and for getting 25 basic brushes, this is a great deal that you can’t beat!
very pleased... Thank you! :-)

I've found these brushes to be of good quality, keeping their shape well and washing up easily. I have never had any of the bristles fall out. The handles have sealed wooden handles (With the exception of the #1 and #2 chip brush and the two 1-inch foam brushes) that have not cracked or splintered. I have personally used them with gesso, mod podge, watercolor, washes, glass etching liquid, acrylics, and tempura. I will not drop $24.00 on a paintbrush that I can use a .24 cent brush for.
If you take good care of your brushes, they will take good care of you. Now I'll "review" the proper care of a paintbrush;
-Never allow your paint or media to dry on your brush. To avoid letting the paint dry on the brush, try to work by using one brush at a time.
-Never store your brushes upside down.
-Don't leave your brushes in water for extended periods of time. So, it goes to reason...never leave your brush with the hairs down in a cup of water. Not even for a few minutes. This will bend and/or fray the bristle hairs and the effect is irreversible. Try a paintbrush holder, people.
-Don't get paint on the ferrule! (Bristle, ferrule, crimp, then handle.) When paint gets on the ferrule, it's most often a large blob between the ferrule and the hairs. This will often result that the hairs will spread apart and wind up frayed. Try your best not to get paint on this part of the brush.
-Clean and store your brushes properly; be gentle yet thorough, use lukewarm water and your hands. If you choose to use soap, don't use dishwashing liquid. This type of soap contains chemicals that are too harsh for your bristles. There are artist's soaps on the market or try a hypo-allergenic/baby soap. Rinse the soap completely. Repeat if necessary. Once your brush is free from media, shake the excess water off. Wrap in a paper towel or rag and squeeze the excess water out. Allow your brush to dry horizontally. You can either store your brushes horizontally or "standing up" in a holder. On the go, you can take your brushes in a brush roll.
