He's on FB, have always wanted to try some. Just curious! He makes some interesting styles but I don't know how they would hold up to intense watercolor use.

However, they do not keep their shape as you paint. When I make a stroke the brush "bends" slightly and then stays in that shape (similar to synthetic watercolor brushes I have used in the past). It does not spring back (like W&N Series 7). I will keep using the brushes to see if they improve with use, but as is, it is kind of annoying to have to keep reshaping the point between strokes.
