Review by Alice
I have both the size 6 and the size 10 of the 828 mop series, and I absolutely love them. Most of my watercolours are about A4 sized, and these two brushes are a perfect pair for this size of paintings. I use the larger size 10 for laying down initial washes and painting the sky (if the artwork has one), and then the size 6 is perfect for even the most delicate of lines as it comes to a marvellous point.
The brushes also hold a huge amount of water - when I go back to using my synthetic round brushes, I always find it so difficult to adjust back to having to dip my brush in paint so much more! If you've never used a squirrel mop before and you are a watercolour artist, I urge you to try this one out.
As far as shedding is concerned, I had a tiny amount when the brushes were new but this stopped within two or three uses. Notably, I very much avoid getting the binding wet, which has probably contributed to the longevity and lack of shedding of these brushes. Highly recommended! (Posted on 23/01/2016)
