My $85 wash brush nestled in it's little case

It was almost a Windsor & Newton Series 7 - that most famed of brushes for watercolor and ink use - but just too expensive - so instead I went with a DaVinci #10 pointed watercolor round in Siberian Kolinski sable.

I was surprised when I opened the package to find a tiny bar of perfumed soap and a little towel for washing this brush!! And also the nice touch of twin brush rests to hold it off the bottom - I didn't appreciate the value of those until the 1st time I washed it (right there in the box, by simply getting it wet and scrubbing it gently against the little bar of soap) and I realized it holds the brush in the perfect position for drying - and not only that, but you can close the outer box most of the way for protection and still let air get to the bristles. It's actually sort of ingenius.
