Are you looking for fancy looking yet high quality brushes? Many retail stores sell fancy but low-grade brushes. They are fine if you want to display them rather than use them. However, real artists with trained eyes know that these types of brushes simply are not worth the money saved. The following are some of our best and most unique looking brushes. The prices of our high-grade brushes are better than the cost of some of the lower-grade brushes sold in retail stores because we eliminate middle men and our office and warehouse space costs less than an expensive retail store front. Many beginners opt for cheap brushes thinking they will buy better ones when their skill improves. However, a low quality brush does not perform and it will hinder your efforts and can even discourage you from continuing. In many ways it’s more important for a beginner to have a good brush that will make learning easy.
