After Melanie B. spent years testing 1000 paint brushes...well, maybe not that many, but it sure felt like it...she felt as though there just was NOT a perfect set specifically for paint by numbers. She decided it was time to design her own. What started as one 5-piece set became 3 5-piece sets...then 4. Then she introduced the "Create in WaterColor PBN Kits", which needed their own set of watercolor brushes...and need we say more? Then she decided to offer the brushes individually, so that you can choose your favorites!
