  • What buyers say about da Vinci Watercolor Series 488 CosmoTop Spin Paint Brush

    I use this paintbrush all the time, it holds a lot of water, and paints a very thin line or two.

    The 4 brush was loose in the Amazon box and it works well with pan paints due to their very slight stiffness.

    It is so much nicer than the cheap brushes I have been using, it holds a lot of water, and paints a very thin line or a thick line.

    I think it's very effective, it covers a large area, and has a unique mechanism where the flow of paint runs out faster than water from the brush, will get a smaller size next.

    I am very pleased with this purchase, it is my go to brush, and I will purchase more of these in the future.

    Has anyone used this to paint miniature models such as warhammer 40k, age of sigmar, hordes/war machine etc.

    There are 1 bristles.


    Does the small sizes come in a good package?


    I felt that it was well protected because it came with the usual plastic tube.


    What is the difference between cosmotop nova and cosmotop spin?


    Both of them have a similar feel but 5580 is slightly more absorbent for watercolor.
