Used it twice and noticed how it does not hold its shape . When dry it is very fluffy and when wet can not get a good point on it.
Pretty brush with good spring and holds a decent amount of paint in its belly. It doesn't come to as fine a point as my Da Vinci pointed round in the size 6. In fact the point is less pointy than 8/10 of my size 4-8 watercolour brushes. Couldn't make a hair-fine line. But then being a travel brush it isn't needed for fine botanical work.
Lovely brush and can't wait to use it
The brush tip was bent meaning that it was impossible to get a point and the balance of the brush was all wrong so it didn't feel good in the hand, although this may possibly a personal preference. I returned it for a credit note.
Very nice brush. Great point.
