Antonin, I am glad you asked that question. I have been wondering that myself.

Well, I ordered some bristol and synthetic brushes I will let you know when I get them.

But I heard that they have the best bristol brushes which is nice if you like heavy brush strokes.

If you go on their website they have a tones of consumers reviews.

I can't wait  Big Smile

Wow ! I received my Kalish brushes and they are awesome. I ordered some round bristles and flat strong synthetic. I tried them right away and really they are just perfect. They make my brush stroke bolder and really nice. It almost do the job for you Big Smile

I highly recommend those brushes !

Antonin,  did you try them with both oils and acrylics? Were there differences in how the brushes worked with each paint?

I mostly paint with acrylic so I only tried them with acrylic.

The bristle are really soft and clean but rigid enough to give you a really powerful brush stroke. The strong synthetic is perfect for heavy impasto. It holds paint really nicely.

It is really hard to explain more than that. The best is to try it by yourself and their price is fairly reasonable.
