The 3/8 and 3/4 inch stencil brush set is a low quality item that will suffice for a specific task and likely a one use function. The metal band was not firmly in place when I opened the package and it came off the handle. It was easy enough to reinstall, but I did not get the sense I had a quality brush right away. The bristles of the brush were not extremely dense, which might be okay for stenciling, but certainly not for highly skilled usage. As long as your task does not require high quality control of use they will likely do fine for the task.
These brushes are both good sizes for smaller stencil cutouts. The bristles have a good amount of stiffness to them, which makes the brushes ideal for the "pouncing" motion used when stenciling. The only issue I had with these is that the glue holding the wooden handle to the metal piece is not doing its job. With both size brushes, the handle comes right off.
Got tired of having to use bigger brushes for smaller projects so i got these two, natural bristle brushes. The brushes are a little stiff which i like for applying oil type finishes, for me, it tends to coat with less bubbles. The size of these brushes are perfect for applying a finish to the interior of a bowl or vases type of turning on a lathe. They can go right in, spread the oil efficiently and effectively. They do not absorb too much of the oil finish which is also a plus for the wood working i do. The photos i included are of my test run of a bowl/cup turning with a face plate chuck. First one, and first time i have ever used a pure oil finish, so it was a test which everything came out as expected.
Pros: Easy to Clean, Easy to Use, Even Application, Good Coverage, High Quality of Material
This two piece stencil brush set is great for stenciling and also many craft projects. The natural bristles are relatively soft, uniform and nice quality. They are packed tightly and well anchored deeply into the ferrule. They are not three eighths and three quarters inch they are five sixteenths and one half inch. That is not a problem for my use but may be for others. The label says they are “double crimped” and the indentations on the ferrules shows that they were. However the handle of the larger brush in the package I received was loose and auto disconnected from the ferrule as I picked it up. Again not a big problem for me (solved with a drop of polyurethane glue). The brushes are nice, work well and I would purchase again.
These are good stencil brushes. I’m beginning to learn rock painting, so these came in handy. They are flat brushes with no tip, so they hold the paint well, don’t drip, and cover a good amount of surface. They stand up to repeated cleanings and clean well. They are specifically made for stencil crafts of all sorts, and can be used with acrylics, watercolors, or even oils, which make them ideal for most stenciling and craft projects.
Pros: Easy to Apply, Easy to Clean, Easy to Use, Even Application, Good Coverage, High Quality of Material
The packaging states natural bristles. I wonder what this means are they horse hair boar hair? Since these can be used for water or and oils they are heavy. That also means I can use mineral spirits or turpentine to clean. That is good but I would like to see that on the package. Great little set and you could use it if you do refinishing too since it holds oils. Dont let the fact it says stenciling on the package mislead you as these can be used for alot .
Pros: Easy to Clean, Easy to Use, Even Application, good size
MAESTRA 3/8 INCH AND ¾ INCH STENCIL BRUSH SET (2 PIECES)
I'm all about various types of crafts, and these stencil brushes are perfect. The great
thing is they can be used with various mediums, such as, watercolor, acrylics and oils.
If you clean the really well after using them, they will last a long time. You will get
2 of the most popular sizes, 3/8” and 3/4”.
They are made with natural white bristles and have lacquered wood handles. The
brush head height is .75” and head width is .50” and handle length measures 3.75”.
You will see in my pictures I have used them in a little different way, and look how
great they worked for me, I made the flowers myself with plaster of paris, added a
splash of acrylic paint with these brushes. I am so pleased with these brushes. I
would recommend them to every DIY'er. Great product at a great price.
Pros: Easy to Clean, Easy to Use, Good Coverage, High Quality of Material, Looks Great, Modern
Before you risk the multitude of issues that follow this China trashcan filler, look in your backyard for: a dead bird’s feather, a piece of pine straw, and a few pieces of grass blades to twist together for a better product. This set of imported garbage was purchased to paint a child’s wooden toy (approximately 30 square inches) and then tossed in garbage after the small application. The 1st 5 minutes of use entailed most of my time tending to the broken bristles stuck to the object being painted. If these brushes were safe to burn in a fireplace I’d estimate their value at $0.000000005 for the set. Obviously...they’re worth much less than that! An additional model brush set was purchased during the same transaction (costing the same unit price) for a variety of selection during the project. Those got 5 stars...just an fyi that this review isn’t from a cynic.
Needed a small brush to quickly paint over some screws and some rough parts. I didn't need anything elaborate because I was looking for 'throw-away' brushes. These proved to do exactly just that.
Pretty low quality so don't expect much. However, the bristles stayed in place and allowed me to have proper coverage over the screws.
For what I needed, this is perfect. However, they are pretty low quality and server as 'throw-away' brush if not much else.
