PositivesThe Isabey rigger brush has the most beautiful balance of any brush I've ever used. It's an absolute delight to paint with. The brush handles thin to thick rigger strokes beautifully. I really love this brush!
NegativesSince it's such a tiny, natural hair brush, sometimes the point is lost quickly when reloading the brush.

The Isabey rigger is really just an excellent brush. It is balanced perfectly to hold at the tip of the handle, as a rigger should be held.

Can I scrub the brush?
Is the sizing immediately gone?
Will it pull up on multiple washes?
Will masking come off easily?
Will it resist or soak up water?
How quickly can I do another wash?
This is my personal viewpoint on the brush. Do I like to paint on this brush?
How does the brush feel to work on? Does it respond well to the brush or seem to resist it? Can I work quickly and easily or do I have to keep in mind the brush's quirks as I go?
Brush feel is difficult to quantify but very important to the artist. Sometimes I work with difficult brushes just because I love how they respond to the paint and the overall affect.
Individual artists will have as many different opinions as painting styles!
First, is this meant for students or professional artists?
Does the price reflect this?
In these days of super sales and discounts of 50% expected off a artifically high MSRP, it's impossible to give accurate prices. I'm using MSRP for comparative cost. Please realize that 50% off the list price is very common! These are certainly NOT the prices I paid with a coupon!
