    I am currently taking GCSE and decided to buy art stuf for the summer. The only problem is, I don't know what kind of brushes are best. I want one that can also last for a long time too but I'm not looking to spend too much (£8 maximum)

    I found these two brushes on ebay :

    http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Pro-arte-S...#ht_2153wt_917

    Which ones are best, and/or do you know where to get better brushes?

    My son does painting at art school. They all go through a lot of them and obviously can't afford expensive ones. A lot of them buy those cheap sets you get at The Works. It's what you do with them that counts.

    oh okay - my teacher recommended that store to me, but haven't yet made time to go there. I guess I'll check it out. About how much do the brushes and acrylic pains cost there?

    Here you go:
    http://www.theworks.co.uk/Arts--Craft/

    Their canvasses and tubes of acrylic are very good value and they also do very affordable portfolios.

    I wouldn't really recommend The Works for brushes, the set I got when I needed a few were awful & fell apart (but I was using them with mildly toxic chemicals - not paint!). Rymans do some pretty good sets as well as single brushes, but the ones you've posted look alright.

    Oh okay - thanks
