My dear wife, Marilee surprised me with a set of cat's tongue brushes for my birthday back in April. These brushes are made by MEEDEN and the set included a number 12, 8 and 4. I have to say I haven’t enjoyed using new brushes like this for a long time!
I have been very content with my brushes for a long, long time. They are like old familiar friends. In fact, some are over 40 years old. I know how they will respond to my painting style and needs. This is something that you learn through time.
What’s nice about all of these cat's tongue brushes is you can manipulate them in brushstrokes from large to small in a single brushstroke. The #12 brush is used for large washes. The #8 brush should be used for medium size areas. The #4 is excellent for finishing details.

Here's the info:
• Squirrel Hair Oval Paint Brushes really holds a lot of water and pigment
• I have been using consistently for nearly three months and no hair has come out--not one!
• Cat's tongue shape is perfect for watercolors
• Its unique point provides a good range of brush strokes and techniques to produce your work of art
• 3 Pieces set – Sizes: #4, #8, #12
I let all of my students experience these brushes during classes and workshops. It's like taking a car out for a test drive. Surprisingly they are now recommending them to their artist friends.
I quite often t get asked about my brushes by my students. Some actually call my old brushes 'Popovich's magic paintbrushes!' In my opinion, these are as close to magic as you can get. If you would like to purchase the MEEDEN Cat's Tongue Brush set CLICK HERE.
