ShinHan Art Shami Round Watercolor Paintbrushes
Shami Watercolor Brushes from ShinHan Art are a nice student-grade brush set for those just getting into watercolors who want a nice quality set of brushes without the initial investment. Use them with watercolor paints and gouache. The variety of sizes is good for everything from detail work to washes.
These brushes were designed to hold their hairs both during painting and cleaning (which I can't say for some introductory brushes that I've tried!) They also stay soft and flexible and can be reformed after you clean them. To clean your brushes, just run them under warm water to wash out the paint and use your fingers to gently reshape brush hairs, making sure to bring the tips to a smooth point. Rest them horizontally (use a brush rest if you have one) for 24 hours or overnight before returning them to be stored upright or in a brush roll. (Keeping water out of the ferrule will help with longer life for your brush and is also better for helping brushes to reform and maintain their shape. Once a brush has lost its tip, it's much harder to use and extremely difficult to ever reform it.)
Each set comes with 5 brushes in sizes 2, 6, 8, 10, and 15.
