Virtuose brush?

Post by squiggle on Sun Sep 18, 2011 9:26 pm

I received a free brush from silly farm last week and when I used it yesterday for a gig, I absolutely fell in love with it. I could literally paint everything with it- details, fat lines, skinny lines- you name it! BUT when I went to silly farm to order a boat load of these beauties, I could not find them anywhere on the site. They are a red brush, #4, and the only writing on the brush says "Virtuose". Anybody have ANY idea where I can get more of these? I have an email in to silly farm but who knows when they'll ever respond.

Which kind was it? Round? Flat? Filbert? Sounds like a fun new product to try!

LOL! I'd like to know if the handles are wooden or plastic(wooden ones don't last as long). I'm at the point where I want to hold my brushes before buying them(does that sound too intimate for ya'll Embarassed ).

I'm such a sucker for a good brush, lol. I ordered some to try and also got another of my favorite Simply Simmons flats. Even with shipping those are great prices, thanks ladies! flower

I received my brushes today (finally!). I'm a little disappointed as far as the #4's I ordered---The one I had received free from sillyfarm had a nice sharp point but these don't. BUT the #3's and #2's all have super nice points.

As far as the handles, they appear to be plastic. I tried to bite on the end and couldn't Wink

I had a 12-hour gig on Saturday and seriously, this #4 brush and a liner brush were the only ones I used all day, except for the 3/4" flat for the small arty cakes. I'm in love! I just hope the new brushes are just as good. It really saves time when I'm not having to change brushes constantly when I have a line a mile long.

And LOL, no, I don't work for the company :-D

Ok so... I love these brushes still lol, they gave me 10% off anything in their store and said I can share the coupon code... So if you are in the market for some brushes check it out. (P/s: The Virtuose name is being switched to Bolero) In case you get confused when you get your order, same brush though... Anyhow the code is suzy10 lol Lasts until Feb 29th.
