    Agreed - I've been using them for quite some time, and they are some of my favorite brushes. They are cheap, yet I haven't had to replace any of them. Once in a while a few hairs fall out, but every brush does that.
    Great for edges and soft transitions

    hey thanks for the info midcandyman.
    i am always surprised at what brushes turn out to be really nice.
    i usually use utrecht brand brushes, which are pretty cheap.

    if you trust this place...The other brush that I really like is "silver grand prix"

    http://www.misterart.com/store/view/...stle-Brush.htm

    I use the filberts and also the flats...cause you can't scumble or anything with those langnickels they are way too flexible and thin for that type of stuff...they hold a point real well...and these brushes cover the other areas.

    Thanks for those MindCandyMan -

    I'm always searching for badass bristle brushes. My teacher got me hooked on the Winsor & Newton Lexington II series in college...quite inexpensive and a nice spring to 'em. They are a mix of synthetic and natural hair.

    couldn't find a link on any sights though ... but I know PEARL carries them.

    - gonna check out those grand prix...
    Also on the search for the perfect "details" brush. I used to be exclusive to the Winsor & Newton series 7 but I feel since their popularity the quality isn't what it used to be. any suggestions?

    Also, Schmid wipes his brushes with Viva Paper Towels.

    Paint like Schmid! Use Viva!
