Hello fellow Dawi,
I am getting frustrated with my current paintbrushes. I was originally gifted a set of 10 or something, but I only really use 1 or 2 now, and even they are being unreliable for me. I am really looking for a set of good, very fine detail brushes that will last a while. Does anyone know where to get some, either online or in a store, preferably for cheap? Is there a certain brand that is very good?
I spoke to my friend about it earlier, and he said that I probably should go to Michael's or some craft goods store. He said they sell brushes there that look really nice for $15 a piece, or you can get a 6-pack for $80, and that I should just look up how to properly maintain good brushes like that. I kind of balked at that price, but then I realized that this is my friend's philosophy for everything (i.e., develop an interest in something and then buy seemingly the most expensive version/tool/equipment for it because he thinks you get what you pay for and there is no good quality things that are cheap).
Before I went out and bought brushes that cost more than some of my models, I wanted to check with you guys and see if you guys know of a trusted brand or store or whatever. Even though my friend suggested that expensive option, he said he usually just gets a cheap 10-pack at Walmart for like $6, but each brush is usually only good the first few times you use them.
