$45- Help me spend it on a set of starter brushes!

Post by Mika's Creations2 on Thu Dec 22, 2011 1:22 pm

Hey everyone! I had a friend order my first set of paints from SF and there's $45 left over in his PayPal account. So instead of asking for it back I figured I'd get some brushes with it.

Can anyone tell me where I can get a good set of brushes for $45 including shipping? I love you

I too am a LC 7000 lover. Some of the best prices I've ever seen for them...

oh UG I didn't need to be reminded I had saved the sites. Rolling Eyes
I'm loving the prices for these brushes but which ones should I get that I will definitely be using all the time? Shocked

That's okay, you will probably find the 'Frequently Asked Questions' section of the forum very helpful Smile

Yes, definitly invest in a good angle brush. Probably 1/4 inch. These are great for outlining butterflies...etc.
- filbert
-3/4 flat brush
1 inch flat brush
#3 round
#5 round
The Snazaroo red rounds are awesome for making flowers.
