If I could ONLY BUY 5 Brushes...

Master's Choice Mongoose LONG Flats

This is the magic unicorn brush that Casey Baugh turned me on to. It is fabulous for working wet into wet and softening. Can't find anything like it here in U.S. Must order from Rosemary.

should be about 1/2 inch long to use as a good signature brush. These are easy to find.

Ivory Filberts from Rosemary & Co.

Similar to a hog's hair bristle but not as aggressive and has a good spring. Other synthetic filberts may work. I like #4

Goat's Hair Mop

Small and large. I also like tiny soft brushes that act as mops for softening detailed small areas. You can find these at area art stores, not necessary to order from Rosemary but theirs are nice!

Kolinsky Sable Filbert #4 or #6

I love this brush for details and working on portraits. Rosemary is the only place I have found this great quality.
