This is a set of three synthetic sable travel brushes. Chrome and wood. Sized 4,8, and 12. These can do much larger painting that the water brushes included in many of my travel sets. The lids make them easy to travel with. No chance of bending and ruining the bristles. These are a good set for anybody who paints, but not always at home. These are the most reasonable, but good working brushes that I've found, and you won't have to wait for long international shipping as I did.
