This is a set of 5 brushes that I use for almost all of my painting. They are excellent quality. To paint my roses I used angled shaders. The 3/4" is for the larger roses and the 1/2" is for smaller. If a brush is too stiff it will not make the turns that I need. If a brush is too floppy and soft, it just collapses under the 3 shades of paint. The little mop brush is my favorite for blending and using extender to get a really pretty soft look. The two rounds are both pointed rounds that can be pressed down to start petals or drawn out to sketch detail. Love them.
