Top Customer Reviews
The only issue that I have had with this brayer is that my students don't wash the paint off soon enough and the brayer can be difficult to clean. This is more of an issue with 35 fifth graders using these tools than an issue with the brayer itself. It is well made and good quality in my opinion. I have purchased 4 of them and all are in perfect working order after one year of use by two classes (70 kids).
I would definitely purchase this product again!
The main issue I had was the center of the brayer simply doesn't take ink. I'd repeatedly roll the brayer over a perfectly flat sheet of glass with ink, and the you could visibly see only the sides of the brayer picked up any pigment. The center was noticeably bare. You can't get enough pressure to the center of the roller for it to be effective. Only the sides of this brayer make any real contact with the surface you're rolling it on.
This simply isn't a good brayer for inking. For that I'd likely need a hard rubber brayer such as the "Speedball Deluxe 4-Inch Hard Rubber Brayer" but amazon doesn't seem to currently offer a 6 inch version.
A definite 5-Star in every way.
