Verified Purchase
Go the Petit Set because I wanted to try out waterbrush painting. I think this one is so great I don't feel inclined to upgrade to a full size one anytime soon.
The only problem I've had was my Mom kept borrowing it, so I had to get her one as well.

Also I would love to get some more of those little bottles like the one the set comes with, would jetpens consider stocking?

It's a really a cute little brush, and it performs very well. Length wise, It's a little bit shorter than the Pilot Petit 1 Fountain Pen when capped. The brush size is close to a No 1 Round Brush. I think it will be very portable, and perfect for smaller scale work and sketchbooks.

Great inexpensive set!
This water brush works great. The waterbottle holds plenty of water for a day of sketching with watercolors. This set will fit in event he smallest watercolor sets and pairs well with my mini mint tin DIY watercolor sets.

The brush holds a point well and is hidden inside the handle for travel. Easy and convenient.

Verified Purchase
This water brush set is the perfect size for watercolor travel kits. The short brush barrel might pose a problem for people with huge hands. The bottle is able to carry up to 1 oz of liquid. Water flows out of the brush smoothly, unlike the regular size Kuretake water brushes where you have to squeeze hard on the barrel to get the flow going. I'd say function-wise, the brush behaves more like the Pentel Aquash than its full-size Kuretake versions. As for the brush tip, it is the same size as the small Kuretake water brush. All-in-all, I love this product. I'm thinking of buying another one as a spare.

Verified Purchase
Very cute brush. I did think the bottle made it less portable than it could be, and ended up making a cap for the other end of the brush so it can be carried with water inside. Here is the 3D printer file if anyone wants to make their own:

Verified Purchase
I've never actually used water paint before, but this little brush along with the very useful bottle made it both easier than I thought it would be and enjoyable. And considering the price and the convenience of both the size and that water bottle, I would say it's well worth the buy.

This brush is perfectly...
Verified Purchase
This brush is perfectly sized to fit into my custom watercolor travel kit! The bottle, not so much, but I figure I can carry that in my pocket along with my mini art book. The bristles are soft and short, giving nicely controlled strokes. The tip is not very fine, but it's fine enough to create some details along with broader strokes.

The only thing that keeps this from getting a full five stars is that the water is not completely secured into the body when the brush is inserted into it. Natural water tension will keep the water from pouring out of the hole, even when held upside down. But some drops will come out when you give it a firm shake. I'm not sure how well it holds up when rattled around in the sketch kit, and I'm not willing to test it empty (because that's not realistic of how it would be normally carried) nor full, because I don't want my paints to get wet and leak everywhere in the event water does get shaken out. So to be an absolutely perfect product, I'd like to have some kind of slip cap to go over the end. (Of course, you could always fashion one out of an empty ink bladder or waterballoon, something like that.)
