So a while ago I backed the artis opus Kickstarter to bring their new brushes into production. As with most Kickstarters I have backed over the last few months I had completely forgotten about them. Then last week out of the blue they turned up so thought thought I’d let you know wot I think of them.
In short these are some of the best brushes I have ever used. They are presented in a nice case and the quality of the production lets you know that these are something special.
In the set you get 4 brushes ranging from size 1 through to 000. Each brush is true kolinsky sable and they all have nicely formed points.
In use the quality shines through, they feel quite light but are nicely balanced. They hold paint nicely but also shed it easily onto the mini with plenty of control. The combination of the nicely formed tip and the snap of the hair makes them feel like you are painting more with a pencil then a brush!
The box also includes a small jar of cleaning and conditioning soap. To test them out I used them to paint this Scicarian rust stalker for my Kill team unit.
I think for me the fine control really helped with painting the sharp highlights needed when painting black.
The last few weeks I’ve all been painting some of my Kings of War ogre army so here is a sneak preview of my next post.
So anyway if your looking for a new set of brushes you should check this set from Artis Opus out. If you’ve also tried the brushes then let us know below.
Thanks for reading
