I don't know whether to blame Jackson's or Isabey for this but I have to say, upon delivery, I was disappointed with these brushes. Firstly I bought three, sizes 0, 2/0 and 3/0. The first problem I had was the incredibly sticky and hard to remove bar code label. After finally prizing the label off I was left with a very sticky residue. I tried various gentler ways of removing the glue but ended up having to resort to white spirits... nothing else would shift it.Secondly, out of the three brushes, two had had their protective sleeve put on so that a couple of hairs were trapped and sticking out, the third had the sleeve pushed on so hard I had to grip the end with some pliers to get it off!! Usually, though not always, brushes are starched to protect them from the above, these weren't so looked rather raggedy. Luckily, with a little care the brushes are now shaped as they should be but I will be thinking hard about buying brushes from Jackson's/Isabey again.I can't yet comment on how they hold paint etc but I doubt I'll be buying these brushes again, although not expensive, they aren't that cheap either. I expected better. (Posted on 20/08/2015)
