It buckles, balls and tears in the process.

Brushes These should be "great" quality brushes so you can control it.
They can last 25 years so, it's a great investment, and it will give you years of pleasure.
Never get a cheap, camel hair brush. They will be annoying and useless. 
Hairs in the painting for example is not fun. 
Ask for a brush that has lots of spring and sharp pointed ends, and a firm ferrel.
Imatation Sables are the best, by far!

I plan on about $5.00 per brush on adverage.
