Info

Silver Brush Black Velvet brushes are made from a blend of Squirrel hair and a new type of synthetic filament called Risslon. Because they are blended, these premium short-handled brushes possess the durability and spring of a synthetic brush, and the liquid-holding capacity of a squirrel mop, making them a great investment. They are designed for use with water-based paint; principally watercolor, inks, dyes and silk-painting.

This is a Series 3009S Short-handled Oval Wash brush. It is a versatile brush which is perfect for large washes, but which also sharpens to a fine point which can be used for precise dropping-in of color or for adding details. The black Risslon filaments are mounted in a black ferrule. Available in 3/4in or 1in sizes, of which this is the former.

Review

The Black Velvet brushes are my absolute favorite for watercolor and ink. With a nice point, I find these are a great substitute for the more expensive large sized kolinsky sable rounds. They hold a lot of liquid and distribute water evenly onto cotton and cellulose papers. Squirrel hair makes for a softer brush so don't expect the firm snap of a full synthetic like golden taklon...thought I'd mention this since many artists are not fans of soft brushes. I own many sizes in the Black Velvet line and I purchase new ones whenever I can afford to. Looking forward to trying out the Dagger and Rigger brushes next. I would definitely recommend this brand to any watercolor artist.

Holds a lot of water, super soft and gives a good wash. But several in this brand . Tutor also using so it was good to buy what she was using.

Bought these softer brushes after I bought the A Gallo set. The softer paints need a softer brush. Use these for my outings out with my paint set. Great for A5 books on your travels .

Bought these to replace my moth eaten sables. Great brush holds a lot of water. Very pleased

Review

I bought other sizes of this brush but did not find this size helpful. It just didnt hold enough pigment for me, or point not as good as my Sable I already had.

Review

Not a fan of the Silver Brush Black Velvet line. I bought a few of these along with Princeton's Velvet Touch brushes for watercolor but didn't like either. The black barrel and ferrel of these brushes makes it easy to not notice if paint or water has travelled up the brush. The hairs hold a decent amount of water, but if you're looking for natural hair brushes, don't settle for these. The handle of these brushes feels cheap and weren't comfortable to hold.

Currently, my favourite brush; Really soft, holds the point and a lot of water. My go-to, very versatile.

Review

Excellent brush - carries a lot of water and pigment and has good release. Can come to quite a fine point when wet. It handles like a mop when wet, definitely does not have the 'springiness' that synthetic or sable/sable blends/synthetic have - but this is a squirrel brush and a really nice one at that.

My second time purchasing a Silver Black Velvet Brush and it's so much fun to work with. Very fine tip, holds lots of water, has a nice grip to it - this brush will definitely be used a lot more in the future.

Holds a lot of water and a fine tip, but also allows wider brush strokes. Haven't purchased a Silver Black Velvet Brush yet that I was not completely happy with!

Review

Laser point brush. I have been trying several brushes and this thing is unreal, no wonder everyone talks great about them. It is soft but not floppy, it holds water but is very controllable. The bristles mix is great but the design is key I think, since the relationship of size of barrel and length of bristles leads to an overall conic shape , without a belly that gets out then in. Ordering the famous n8 these days.

Excellent brush, hold water really well and keep its shape even with heavy abuse. It can do everything you need your round brush to do - large wash, perfect lines, detail works. Though for me I should have bought a size 6 since I mainly work very small (A5 ish size), but I found myself reaching for this brush more than my size 6 ones. Great brush, gonna order a size 6 now.

I love this brush! I got it based on Mind of Watercolour's love of them and I'm not disappointed at all. If you want just one brush (as I know good brushes can be a bit of an investment) I'd definitely say start with a round size 8 black velvet!

Review

Absolutely excellent! I bought some of these based on Steve from Mind of Watercolor’s recommendation on his channel and love of them and I haven’t been disappointed! The 1/2 inch flat has been excellent and a really good starting size for flats. The size 8 round is my favourite and the most versatile. I’d say if you’re a beginner and want one or two brushes, the size 8 round from this brand is an absolute must! And I also ordered the size 4 script liner which I haven’t had much use of yet but will probably use for trees. Want to order the size 2 because it will probably be more useful for me. Overall, favourite brushes EVER.

Vraiment exceptionnelle cette gamme de pinceaux pour l'aquarelle. Je les adore plus que tous les autres. La pointe étant d'une grande finesse, on peut tout faire avec seulement 3 pinceaux

Great alternative for a wash brush. Serves the same purpose, but you can also get thin lines with the tapered point. Holds tons of water. Just wonderful brushes.

My favourite brushes I have, and the most used. They're wonderful and hold so much water! Getting thin lines is very easy with the point, and I don't have to keep going back to load up my brush. These brushes are a treat.

I have been trying to paint with watercolour for many years. And recently watched Some younger artist using ablack velvet brush. They made it look much easier to form leaves, and flower petals. The brush does the work. It really works, and well worth the extra money you pay from the cheap brushes

I ordered the whole range from 2 to 12. This was my firsy Jackson's order and first high quality brushes so I was very excited! I checked every day where the parcel is! Finally, I got them! And oh no! What a dissapointment - these brushes are so soft, I couldn't manage to get the lines I wanted. I must mention I was a complete beginner - just 6 months after I got my first watercolors (cheap chalky cakes from China). Now, 6 months later, I have to say - these brushes are amazing! So versatile, high quality and even after a lot more ordered brushes these are my precious. Just give them some time if you are still a beginner.

Review

Best watercolor brush I've ever had. I've been using the Kolinsky Sable brushes from Escoda for some time now, and had no complains about them. I still think those are fine brushes, but this one, this brush exceeded all my expectations. For starters, it holds so much water! It takes a really long time before I have to load it again. The second thing I have noticed is that it seems to be soft just in the right amount, enough so you can do your watercolor stuff just the way you imagined, but not so much that you end up losing its shape. I'm really happy that I've found this store also. The Jacksons Art service is just perfect, you guys definitely have a Brazilian fan.

Amazing brush, retains a lot of liquid and incredibly soft. Size 8 is the best one if you want to start out with the brand, might order more sizes

Absolutely love this brush. It holds plenty of water or paint and keeps a really nice point. I have pure sable brushes the same size, but I prefer this one because it's slightly less floppy than the sable.

Kundenmeinung

Ein Träumchen dieser Pinsel. Liegt gut in der Hand, hält überdurchschnittlich viel Wasser und hat eine extrem feine Spitze. Er gleitet regelrecht über das Papier. Der Preis ist leider happig. Habe ihn in drei Größen gekauft weil er im Angebot war. Das hat sich gelohnt, denn der Hype um diesen Pinsel ist schon berechtigt.

Kundenmeinung

Dieser Pinsel ist super weich und hält unheimlich viel Wasser. Das gleichmäßige lasieren von Flächen gelingt mühelos. Die Leistung ist bei diesem Pinsel top. Allerdings ist der Preis wirklich sehr hoch. Habe ihn am Black Friday gekauft. Dadurch war er bezahlbar. Deshalb 5 Sterne. Einen Flat würde ich nur wieder kaufen, wenn er im Angebot ist, ansonsten wäre er mir zu teuer. Allerdings gehe ich davon aus, dass dieser überaus hochwertige Aquarellpinsel viele Jahre hält.
