If you've been reading this blog for at least the last week you probably already know that I'm super unhappy with the company US Art Supplies and the utter crap they've sent me to review. In addition to the two sketchbooks they also sent me a set of brushes for me to use for my face painting. And to be completely honest and blunt I haven't even opened the package up nor do I intend to let them anywhere near my face.
My first issue with these is I can smell them through the plastic packaging, and they stink. I'm sure if I aired them out for the next month that smell would go away, but if something smells that strongly through packaging there is no way I'll ever let it be used on my face.
My next major issue with these is just how poor the quality is. The two brushes on the left are completely mangled and probably unusable. The rest look to be in decent shape but even through the plastic I can feel how flimsy they are. I can't imagine using these with any of my chosen art mediums, they are just awful. And they are specifically marketed as for face painting, which makes the super long handled brushes a little weird too. For the painting on canvas art I do I like longer handles, but faces tend to need more control than these will allow.
And again, like the sketchbooks, these are so over priced for how crappy they are. $10.96 for what amounts to dollar store quality just pisses me off. These will go to my 4 year old and his crayola paint so I can at least get some use out of them, but there is no way I can recommend these to anybody at all. In fact, I think the whole company is awful and you should just stay away from it.
