I love having art products around the house. I am very much into DIY crafts and love being artistic. I don’t paint in the traditional sense but I do often require paintbrushes and acrylic paints for projects that I make that require a bit of color here and there or simply for decorating pre-fab products like wooden mirrors or the occasional birdhouse. The set of brushes I had were old, stubby and the bristles were in horrible condition – so when I was offered the opportunity to try out the Uberve 2-in-1 artist set – I was stoked. It looked like it was everything I really needed for my painting kit.
The product comes with 15 long handled wooden paint brushes with no-shed synthetic hair bristles. The brush heads are coated in some sort of hardened preserving liquid when you get them. I think it keeps them from fraying, shedding or becoming dry rotted before they are used. A bit of warm water loosens and softens the bristles easily so that you can use them. The brushes have nice long handles so you don’t have to struggle to hold them and like I said there are 15 of them ranging in size from large to very small – so you will no doubt have the perfect brush regardless of the project you need it for. The brushes come in a lovely black carrying case – each with it’s own sheath pocket. The brushes stay inside their assigned pocket and to not just roll around in the case. This also prevents them from sliding and getting the bristles caught in the zipper. The case is durable and light weight but very protective. It can easily be slipped inside a tote or backpack for easy travel.
As far as the paints are concerned there are twelve different colors in this particular set of acrylics. All primary and neutral colors are included – if there is a color you are missing you may have to do a bit of blending to get a the shade you want – but that’s half the fun. Each color comes in a sturdy tube. They are individually sealed. Tubes are opened by puncturing the seal with the point in the end of the paint cap. The paint is easy to squeeze from the tube – I recommend doing so a little at a time so that you do not waste what you don’t need. The colors are bright, vivid and creamy and are easily spread by the paint brushes provided.
I have really enjoyed my experience with this product – definitely a great set for an aspiring painter who is starting out. The paint quality is fantastic and the brushes are easy to handle and leave lovely brush strokes. I would definitely recommend. Check out the video to see this product in action.
