I Bought a $140 Brush… Is It Worth It?

I Bought a $140 Brush… Is It Worth It?


so I did it I thought the thing this is very unnecessary expensive art supply a few months ago I yeah was falling for our supplies I came across that brush that costs like over $100 you or whatever and I thought well why if I have what you need such an expensive tool like what can this brush actually do what what is the purpose why is it so expensive usually I don’t really care that much about like expensive our tools and a watercolor is a bit expensive but for brushes for example I only use like the cheap ones the $1 synthetic brushes and I felt like well okay you’re a watercolor artist so you might need this you might want to have this what it won’t want to like what is this about more I thought about it the more I was curious I figured out that over the time the curiosity wasn’t going anywhere and so I actually bought this one so we can go through it together and figure out if I would recommend it or if it’s worth it so let’s start so this is what it looks inside the box and yeah that means that we move the bubble wrap so there it is this is the brush that costs 125 euros days of civil embellished writing on there which says da Vinci maestro hand made in Germany I’ve never seen a brush that comes with a little box and so that’s who will still not worth 125 euros but still I think it’s bad it really feels like bougie so let’s open it so oh this probably I know should be here so here we have the brush let’s put this one aside first let’s have a look at the rest of those peckish so here we have a little part of soap and I think it’s probably for cleaning the bristles of the brush and there is a little tissue I’m not even sure if this is reusable I would have to check that NATO but not sure and so now for the main attraction so first things first I decided to do this part as a voice over so I can collect my honest thoughts and give you a more structured review on the subject because why recording I noticed it was pretty hard for me to say something of substance without repeating the word like a thousand times why not also messing up the painting so let’s go through the points that I noticed by painting with this brush when I unpacked the brush the bristles were glued together for protection and just like with most brushes you can wash it off by putting it in warm water the hair feels quite soft and the handle has a good weight to it the gold embossing looks quite pretty it reminds me a bit of fabric a cells probably Cuomo’s but it’s not that deeply pressed into the wood the ergonomic choice to put a braided areas on the brush for the fingers to rest is nice but doesn’t really affect me because I usually hold the brush on the metal crammed who work more precisely the first thing I noticed about this brush was that even though I picked a medium sized one the tip stays thin and flexible enough to allow you to draw delicate lines and details but also larger areas I already painted this motor for the $2 brush before to be able to compare my experience but more on that later I have to say though that I had to switch to a smaller brush in order to draw the tiny details which with this one here there is no need so it’s quite versatile since the brush can hold more water that makes it easier to paint those larger areas quickly with a synthetic brush you might have to dip back into water and paint more often but being able to retain more water also comes with the downside with that much water inside the tip it becomes quite a challenge to control the wetness of a paper it’s easy to underestimate the amount of water that is absorbed by a brush and while you try to keep the level of wetness consistent it sometimes it’s just too wet and creates puddles maybe it is because I’m too used to my ordinary brush set but that was something I noticed having troubles with it might be beneficial though if you are going for the signature staining watercolor look for paintings like this one it works quite well to give up a bit of control but I feel for subtle transitions that need a lot of pigment pushing and lifting there might be a better choice also the brush is very soft which is great to not harm the paper but it makes it harder to correct mistakes when you have to wipe off the paint quickly the biggest point that makes this brush then out of course is the price it’s expensive as hell I think I wouldn’t have spent that money if it wasn’t for the sake of making a video about it that I felt was interesting because obviously when you are already used to painting with brushes that are nearly 100 times cheaper there is no need for that 120 euro is quite a lot for gosh and it’s hard to find anything to justify such a purchase I have to say though that I don’t really know anything about how expensive it is to make such a brush there might be aspects that legitimize such a price like the bristles might cost a fortune and making them by hand and testing every single one individually surely adds up but from my perspective I am not fully convinced to say it’s worth it yes it sits in your hand quite well and also feels like a tool of high quality together with the box it has the appeal of a collector’s item and surely there’s legitimacy to the aspect of wanting to own something that is just neat and expensive that’s the appeal of brands like Gucci and supreme after all but unlike a break this brush is not only a collectible item it is also a tool which is something to consider as a tool it just does what any good quality brush should do and I think it’s fair to say that you can get that for a bit cheaper I think the biggest strength is that this brush is very versatile it has a large spectrum of strengths that enables you to do lines and areas without switching the brush also the amount of water that it can retain is quite remarkable and great for certain techniques so for some final thoughts on this thing let’s compare the result with the painting I did previously with my regular synthetic brushes so looking at them you can see that they pretty much look alike with a few minor details there but that’s probably just because I am NOT a printer it’s not really the result that this brush effects but well the way to the result there are some advantages in this expensive brush but I think nothing really that you couldn’t really achieve with like a synthetic or cheaper brush and if you work around so may that the that you have to switch the sizes of your brush to get the details or the areas that are done so at this brush you can actually just use this one am I disappointed yes and no to be honest when I ordered this brush I knew it was going to be a brush like that’s what a good brush does that’s what you have mind but there still was like that tiny glimpse of hope to think that there is more to it like that this is some kind of special tool or it’s something like that I will keep using it I mean after all it’s a very decent brush it’s a great good good brush but there are cheaper options so I think it’s not really necessary for the result of your painting to work with such an expensive tool so I would recommend it if you are not only into watercolour painting but also into luxury products or stuff like this is in general your thing but if aspects like that don’t matter to you then this is probably not the right product for you but be aware that this is of course not a vegan folder there is animal hair used here which of course is worth mentioning but I will put more information in the description box by the way you can go over to my Etsy shop and find this little bear I don’t have many left of them and there won’t be any reference since now I want to continue and do more new stuff if you order in the next two weeks there might be a chance that you will find one of these two paintings inside your order since I will give them away around the time and just randomly pick one order and like two orders for the two paintings and put them beside the package so I hope you enjoyed this video it was a bit different this time but doing the live streams on Instagram actually helped me to speak in front of the camera so let’s see where this goes and yeah of course thank you very much for watching and I hope to see you next time bye [Music] you you

  • ValasaFantastic says:

    I got some natural hair brushes for about $3-$5 and they work like this and I do find it harder to do tight details and high pigment techniques. The pointed tip seems superior on this brush but as it works so differently you would have to spend time learning techniques to use it properly. And for around $12 get a few synthetics and one much cheaper real hair paintbrush and get the same results or maybe $20 but still so much less money! My prices are based on Canadian dollars. The video was interesting thanks for it!

  • Marion MetathInk says:

    Your critic isn't on the brushes bad sides, clearly it is about the fact that when working with water base paint (Aquarelle is this case), you need to let the paper dry in between layers, use a towel to adjust the amount of water in your brush… Those are a matter of practicing, not of the brush. 🙂

  • Angelina Rejametova says:

    Does it shed at all?

  • cricket says:

    but it looks nice

  • Alison B says:

    The number 12 would be good for big background washes as it holds so much water but it's just too big for small floral paintings. I like Da Vinci brushes, and have a few, but if you are going to invest in kolinsky sable brushes then the best you can get are Raphael kolinsky sables – they are better quality, and the sizes are bigger than the Da Vincis and they generally cost less. The Raphael Series 8404 are the regular choice, but for any botanical paintings their Series 8408 are really excellent as they have a long pointed tip for very detailed work. I have quite a few Raphael kolinsky sables, including Series 8404 and Series 8408, and I wouldn't swap them for any other brand. I recently invested in a Series 8404 size 14 (a big present to myself!) and it cost significantly less than a comparable size Da Vinci.

    I think for that price you can buy a whole set from Trekkel.com and they are very good brushes. Personally I'd rather spend that amount on good artist quality watercolors. The video was interesting. The brush looks good but too ritzy for me. Thank you for buying a boujee brush on behalf of all budding artists.

  • Avethy says:

    why is it so expensive is it made of unicorn asshair

  • SnowblindOtter says:

    Hey, Laovaan, something I recommend is trying oriental calligraphy/sumi-e brushes. They're really inexpensive, and they're literally made with watercolor-based painting in mind. I almost exclusively use them for my artwork, and I've done some of my best paintings ever with them.

  • ooXChrissieXoo says:

    haha the exact feeling I have whenever I want something expensive, the feeling just doesn't go away no matter how good I can justify not getting it.

  • Miss Ish says:

    Wow such a beautiful art. You're really good!
    I only buy vegan brushes. So it was nice to see just how different the results would be. I guess in a talented persons hands the brush doesn't make a difference.
    Good art is good art!

    Beautiful but as it is natural hair now long will it last?

  • deyn nyel says:

    Omg ur so cuteeee

  • Reve Dream says:

    The price definitely comes from the materials and also many of the more expensive brushes get crafted with more care in comparison to synthetic brushes. Kolinsky brushes, like the Maestro series, are made from the tail hair of an endangered species, so the price is much higher than synthetics.

    I would say for most hobbyists, or for people who are rough on their brushes, expensive brushes are unnecessary. But especially for folks who are working professionally as watercolorists, it's convenient to have long-lasting brushes that will also hold a lot of paint and hold their shape for a long time. The brush seems like the least important thing to me (because it's important to have archival paper and lightfast paint), but it's still good to have a brush that won't be fought with.

  • VariedWings says:

    I love the Maestro series by Davinci. They are my absolute favorite brushes ♥ For the smaller brushes I like to invest a little more. The biggest one I have treated myself to was the size 7. But for all larger sizes I also switch to synthetic brushes 🙂

  • K Rose says:

    Please could you revisit this review after using the brush for a while?
    Such a brush may retain its characteristics longer than others.

  • Loral Uber says:

    You got a very large one! I think kolinsky hair brushes are "overkill" for watercolors, but I use a small size (#3 or #4) for inking illustrations and comics. They hold a much finer point than any other brush I've tried and hold so much ink I can do long, fluid lines. They're still expensive in a small size, but closer to $30 than $150. I think it's worth it on small ink brushes, but for watercolor paintings I just use cheaper brushes and change size more often!

  • Ergastiri Petra says:

    i also own this one…but i totaly agree that people dont need it! expencive tools dont make you good painter…practice does!

  • S Warner says:

    I love using natural brushes and i find myself reaching only for tho 4 or 5 i own even though i have like 15 other synthetics.

    Natural hair brushes are great:
    You don't have to rinse them out or keep rewetting them like a synthetic which saves time, water, and paint. I got mine for cheap from Aliexpress but they have lasted for over a year just being thrown into my school bag with no case. They still have a razer sharp point that can do pencil thin lines even though they are like a size 12 synthetic. They are really cute too! Like they have a big belly that tapers into a cute lil sharp tip everytime its dipped in water. Then when they dry they look like cute little fuzzballs!
    Paint in the brushes doesn't dry that fast so even when you're using another brush you can just switch to another brush and not have to worry about having to rewet the bristles and ruin the perfect pigment to water combo.
    Plus the hairs are soo soft and gentle even on sletchbook paper, and hold alot more water and pigment than a synthetic.
    Flexibility of strokes is a great quality- thin or thicc it dont matter theese babies do em. Flat washes- easy. Delicate blending- a breeze. Fan of layering- hairs are soft enough to not disturb the other layers. Harsh waterlines- if you want them , yeah. No harsh lines- no sweat, they can do that too.
    The difference is unreal even when using a smaller size natural hair brush.

    I recommend getting a size 8 pocket squirrel hair brush as your first natural brush if you cant afford a sable cuz that ish is expensive. I get mine from a store called ART SECRET on Aliexpress because that's the cheapest most reliable one ive bought from. The one i use the most has a little metal cap that goes on it so that the hairs dont get damaged if you're traveling. It says its a sable but i honestly think its squirrel, but it does act a bit like a sable if you dont overload it with water itll keep its tip. I got the blond to brown haired one and it's my precious 5$ baby.

    Why i dont really use synthetics:
    Plus something that bothers me about synthetic is they eventually fray even if i treat them nicely after like 6 to 8 months 🙁 which sucks since i become attached to my art supplies and dont like throwing them away. They dont hold a lot of pigment either- except some of my squirrel synthetics hold a bit more than the others. Its just confusing when youve mixed the perfect color in the right intensity, then use a synthetic and the color is ligther than you mixed cuz it hekd more water than pigment.

    And that sucks because when painting dark skin tones, for me its imperative for a brush to be able to hold the correct amount of pigment and cover a large area quickly so it dries uniformly so i dont have time to go back and dip into my palette for more paint. I honestly can't paint dark skin tines with synthetics because its more of me adapting to the wierd qualities of the brushes more than the brushes doing what i want them to. Layering is a bit of a pain too as sometimes they are too harsh and rewet layers underneath.
    There's very little variability in lines you can do too. Its harder to get flat washes or soft gradients with synthetics as the bristles aren't as soft as natural hairs so you have to coax the water and pigment around and then dab the excess with a towel or something.

    Synthetic brush hairs get stained really easily and it annoys me to no end. My biggest peeve is hearing the brustles scratch against the paper as im painting like TnT idk i just like natural hairs better. The only synthetic i regularly use is a waterbrush when i need to sort of wet and scrub up part of the paint to correct myself.

    Not only that, some synthetics just destroy watercolor paper, let alone sketchbook paper. Hopefully synthetic brushes continue to be designed closer to natural hairs but until then ima keep using my soft fuzzy babies

    So yeah if your conscience allows you, try out a sable or squirrel hair brush!

  • Persephone Black says:

    I won a luxury paintbrush in an art contest once. I still have it. I refuse to use it because it's so nice. I don't like using anything that uses hair from animals because I don't know if those animals are being treated well. I mostly use synthetic, and I find that nowadays a lot of synthetic brushes are pretty good. I don't tend to treat my brushes all that well to be honest, so something cheaper works best for me. The brush you have here is still nice though! Pricey, but nice!

  • Elizabeth Hepola Roth says:

    I enjoyed your video very much & hope my thoughts here help you get the exact control & joy from painting in the future. I hope you will invest in several sizes over time. Perhaps a size 2 or 4, and a 6 or 8 & a 10 to go with your new brush, however from a different company. You can get the quality of & attributes you liked about the The Maestro Brush without the inflated prices from Rosemary & Company Brushes rosemaryandco dot com. They really are fantastic & come in a variety of price points and synthetic hair types if you want a vegan brush. They also have the Kolinsky sable at a much less price.
    I like them so much I am transitioning solely into them for both oil & watercolor. I especially like their watercolor travel brushes. Also, if you take care of them (their is a “how to clean your brushes” section in the website) they should last you many years, perhaps decades. Another commenter mentioned washing & conditioning your brushes. I agree, it’s very important & will save the tips from splitting and extend the life. I like Chealsea Lavender Brush soap for this followed by Old Masters, second. The Chealsea lavender oil brush soap has even removed residual soap I did not know I had left behind in previous cleanings. They leave the hairs clean & soft, back to it’s original form.
    I have a couple other expensive brushes (as in your video) and I prefer the Rosemary & Co. brushes over them. Also, their Customer Service is excellent.
    I wish you continued success with your beautiful artwork.

  • Plum Fun says:

    At that price, yeah, I think it's too much. Half it and I would say it's probably a GREAT investment. When you buy "high end", you are buying more than just how it performs…mostly how long it will last. There is also something to be said for "use quality…produce quality" psychological mindset. It's a human thing, but if someone is given a cheap tool, a mediocre tool, and an expensive tool, and told to use each one in a separate work, that the person will likely spend more time and care making the work when using the expensive tool. Not sure why… heh…the human brain….it's nutty like that I guess. 🙂

    I am not a "pro" at real-medium art (I do 3D stuff mostly), but I did notice that when I splurged a bit and got myself the full range of Dick Blick Brush Tip Markers, my enjoyment of experimentation and my care to detail DEFINITELY went up! I had used a handfull of Timbow Brush Tips before, and even THOSE I found was better than when I was using a bunch of Crayola markers. Mentally, I just "feel more pro and confident" when using the more expensive stuff.

  • Yasmine S. says:

    Any form of abuse is to be banned. I just want to come back to the history of painting art. People had no other choice to get brushes from animal fur. I can't imagine to don't admire some painters like some masters as Renoir, Henri de Toulouse Lautrec, Monnet or any other painter from whom the art is very inspiring for me in the history of art, depending to my emotions about animals. Still, I'm a vegetarian and the idea of ​​eating a dead animal disgusts me with several causes. Suffering is unbearable for anyone, including animals. But a part of realism allows me to live in our world, otherwise I would not even bear to live there.

    I do not want to develop hatred for those who do not have the same state of consciousness as mine.

    I must say that the question of not using animal hair for brushes, comes with the industrial progress that can have innovative synthetic products very powerful. Massive industrialization and synthetic products are often factors of abuse, pollution, disease … We can see here that we must live little by little with its time. Agree to say that animal suffering is no longer bearable and that one must substitute what emanates from it. Then we will confront the paradox of industrial trade with what it generates as bad collateral effects.

  • 7thSeptim says:

    I am a professional artist who work with watercolor, and have been painting for a long time. I have a large portfolio of brushes that goes all the way to about 500 USD a piece, and that is it is also a kolinsky sable. These brushes are also of different brands, and each kolinsky sable of these brands donot perform the same with other brands. The kolinsky sable are expensive brushes, because their hairs are rare and difficult to acquire. Regulations and restrictions apply, including the season in which they are only available to be hunted. Not to make you feel bad but you are are right to say that you don't feel a significant difference in your style with this brush , – i can tell they way how you hold your brush that you haven't reached considerable degree of technique in order to use and leverage the property of this recent acquirement. Da Vinci is top of the line brush, especially the tobolsky and maestro series. The series 35 is a designer series for fine paint application who work with delicate layering of paints and fast action application of washes. Alot of veteran watercolorist will attest that the Da Vinci is perhaps the best brand, and their maestro is the top of the line… the way you hold your brush, you are still struggling to make the paint "draw" itself in the surface. like someone drawing with a coloring pencil or a pencil or a liner. A watercolor painting is not supposed to be like that, you donot drive the paint in the surface of a paper like a drawing, you make it feel like a delicate kiss , and let the brush guide the paint rather than force it to go where you intent it to be, you leverage the wetness and dryness of the surface of the paper to achieve the desired results and effect. most people who like to "draw" an achieve "full control" of the paint be it like a pencil or a pen will have the tendency to be like driving them into the paper and will grip the brush very near the ferrule or almost to the point where the hairs come out, this is not how these brushes are intended to be. Experienced watercolorists will find comfort holding the brush the farther it is you hold it from the grip even to the back end of the tip for maximum swing and coverage but still achieve a great degree of control. Until such a time that you know what to do with it, you won't be able to unleash its full potential

  • Linda Smith says:

    I really appreciated your take on the brush. You gave a good and fair review. I just can't get behind a brush that has come from an animal so cruelly treated. It's about time that artists get behind the fact that there are so many amazing synthetic brushes for a 1/4 of the price and where artists couldn't tell the difference if they painted blind folded with the Kolinsky Sable and a good synthetic brush. On a personal note, I could be your mum, but must say your are too stinkin' cute! ;'-S

    It's true, some brushes are very expensive but they last a very long time…. it's better than seeing hairs stuck on the paint. The problem is that when you love to paint, you often have to have a bank card in your hand.

    Thanks for your perfect videos. I admire your work a lot, you are so talented!!
    sorry for my bad English written :/

    I have just bought an Escoda 1212 # 16 for 130 $ … couldn't help myself 🙁
    DaVinci make great brushes, but the DaVinci Maestro Series 35 Size 12 is too pricy for my taste 🙂
