Soon Y. Warren’s Recommendation for Black Velvet® watercolor brushes

“I love the quality of Silver Black Velvet® brushes. They hold a lot of water and have pointy tips that can create thinner to wider brush strokes. I have been using “Silver Black Velvet®” brushes which serve my purpose well. I use (Round #3000S) size 4 and 6 for very fine detail, 8 and 10 for medium small layering color, and 12 and 16 for larger area application. The soft quality of hair serves my painting style with gentle layers, and because maintaining a fine tip with spring out for next application. I love the brushes and recommend to everyone who paint watercolor.”

…The statement is true and my honest opinion.
