Shaz, thanks for the link to your blogpost about experimenting with the brushes. I bought myself a set of these ($12 Amazon) and just ordered a set for friend’s birthday (same set now $15!).
I will share the link to your blog when I give her these brushes. So very helpful to watch someone else using the brushes and sharing what works and what doesn’t. I’m hoping she will really like using these because she hates using sponge daubers for background sponging.

Thanks Suzy. It just shows how everyone sees crafters as cash cows, doesn't it?

I’ve had the chance to try my cheap version ones a few times how and am so pleased with the results. Like someone mentioned above, the neck of the brush does feel a little flimsy, but i tend to put my index finger on top if the brush area and that stabilizes it well.
I went in a bit heavy handed on the right here, but overall much better than what i typically got with the other tools.
This was inly my second attempt.

Quick update - I've just starting experimenting with the ones from Walmart (three in pack)...love them! I did try a nice fluffy make up brush that I had gotten from a garage sale (so who knows what brand...) but immediately had shedding. I don't know what is different about how the bristles are attached, but no shedding so far. So...I went an ordered a set of 10 from ebay for $6.99. Yea!
