Excellent quality & fast shipping!

I heard about Trekell’s brushes via Mab Graves, whom I follow on Instagram. She didn’t lie about the quality! I’ve been oil painting for years now and I’m very impressed with the feel of these brushes, how they lay down paint, and their ability to hold their shape. As an extra bonus, the shipping was extremely fast - I got the brushes 2 days after I ordered them (as fast as Amazon!). 10/10, highly recommend.

These briushes have become among my favorite brushes. They hold their point really well. Looking forward to seing how they hold up with time. I plan on buying more as I can afford them.

Such a fine point.

I’ve only started using my new Protege Plus brushes but I will say that they have a very fine sharp point which is useful in some of my work. The bristle seems to be as close to a true Kolinsky as any of the ‘synthetic Kolinsky’s I’ve tried. These are worth a try!

Making terrible watercolor paintings with ease!

I'm terrible at watercolors but having a ton of fun doing it. The brush is far better than anything I've currently used. Bought after watching a Mind of Watercolor review. If you're making terrible paintings as well I highly recommend!

Watercolor Painter for +7 years

These have blown me away in pretty much every aspect so far- so much so I put them down to leave a review. I've used kolinsky and real fur brushes often before as they're supposed to be "the best". These changed my mind entirely; the point these brushes hold is SHARP, precisise and a dang pleasure to use. They hold a perfect amount of water for detail work and snap perfectly. I'm going to have a hard time putting them down! Thank you Trekell for making these; these brushes have added the excitement I've been missing for a while back to watercolor painting!
