US Art Supply Oil and Acrylic Paint Long Handle Artist Paint Brush Set with Canvas Roll-Up Storage Wrap Review

My kids and I absolutely love making crafts together. Our most recent long-term project is to make as many alphabet paper plate crafts as possible. Most of the crafts require some sort of paint. Many of my paint brushes have seen better days, especially the brushes that my preschooler daughter uses for her artwork. Thus, when recently offered the chance to review the oil and acrylic paint long handle artist paint brush set with canvas roll-up storage wrap from US Art Supply in exchange for my honest opinion, I eagerly accepted the opportunity.

Price

The US Art Supply oil and acrylic paint long handle artist paint brush set with canvas roll-up storage wrap currently retails for $12.96 on Amazon. The set comes with twenty-four brushes and a storage wrap. Other similar paint brush sets typically cost at least a few dollars more, with some priced much higher. I would pay the current price for this set of brushes, so I therefore rate the US Art Supply paint brushes as reasonably priced.

Performance

I have been quite pleased with all the other products from US Art Supply that I have recently tried, so I was excited to try the oil and acrylic paint long handle artist paint brush set with canvas roll-up storage wrap. My daughter and I are working on a bunch of painted crafts, so we need a lot of paint brushes. I appreciate the two different types of brushes — round and flat — included in the twenty-four-piece set. The different sizes are also useful. The bigger brushes are great for painting large areas while the smaller brushes are perfect for more detailed work. The large round brushes work especially well for covering paper plates in different colored paint.

One of my peeves about cheaper paintbrushes is that the bristles often bend, break, and fall out. I judge a good brush by the lack of breakage. While the nylon brushes are holding up quite well, I have noticed quite a few bristles falling out of the hog bristle brushes during the first use. Once I thoroughly wash the paint from the brush for the first time, however, the loose bristles all come out, and no more fall off onto our art projects. The handles are also made of sturdy wood that has been sealed to protect your fingers and hands from splinters. Despite the loose bristles in some of the brushes, I am fairly impressed with the quality of this set from US Art Supply.

Finally, I really appreciate the storage wrap that comes with the acrylic and oil painting, the long handle artist paint brush set from US Art Supply. The canvas roll-up wrap easily and securely closes to keep all the brushes in place inside. Each of the twenty-four brushes fits neatly in numerical order in pockets on the inside. I do not have to worry about loose brushes floating around my art supply cabinets. Overall I am quite pleased with my new paint brush set.

Final Verdict

If you are shopping for new paint brushes, definitely give the oil and acrylic paint long handle artist paint brush set with canvas roll-up storage wrap from US Art Supply a look. Made for acrylic and oil painting, the set comes with twelve white synthetic nylon brushes and twelve natural hog bristle brushes. Each style comes with one flat brush and one round brush in six sizes. In addition to the twenty-four paintbrushes, the set also comes with a khaki canvas brush roll-up storage wrap. I appreciate the two different types of brushes and the different sizes, which make all types of art projects easier. A few bristles did fall out of the natural brushes during the first use, but I am still fairly impressed with the quality of this set. I also like the canvas roll-up wrap, which keeps loose brushes from floating around my art supply cabinets.
