What do you think of my hand painted horse brushes?

So, I've been trying to start a business and I wanted to get a feel for what people thought of my work.

Let me know what you think! Would you buy them?

I'd definitely buy one if I knew the paint wouldnt chip after a few uses! I love the idea!

I made myself a set...as long as you don't chuck them on the ground, repeatedly drop them, submerge them in a bucket of water for extended periods of time or leave them in direct sunlight, they look great. I clean mine with a damp cloth and the paint still looks fresh and shiny...here are the ones I made for my guy:

I love that green one with the flower! Gorgeous!

Personally, I probably wouldn't buy them just because I'm generally not too gentle on my brushes (I keep them in a bucket with other brushes, throw them back in said bucket after I'm done brushing, constantly dropping them, etc) and I'd hate to buy something that pretty only to have it look thrashed in a couple months.

I do, however, know people more careful than I that would adore something like that (provided of course, that the paint is sealed to protect from the little things).
And something like this would make a great small gift for any horse person. Who says no to brushes? Um, NO ONE.

I really like them! They are beautiful!
My only concerns (which you may have already thought about but just in case you didn't) would be the durability of the paint and the safety of the paint around horses.
I'm a stickler for making sure that whatever I'm using is safe for my horse. I wouldn't want to use the brush, have it get wet, get on my hands, and then indirectly feed some of the paint to my horse by accident. I'm really careful about that.
And also, you just want to make sure that the paint will hold up in any situation around horses. You know how messy things can get sometimes and how durability is a humongous part of this.

They are wonderful looking. Good job.

I seal my brushes with sealant that can be used on dishes you can eat off of. My horse has picked them up and swung them around and I don't believe he's suffered any negative side effects (though he eats the soapy water from his chest when I bathe him, so he may be immuned to chemicals by now). I've been using and practically abusing mine for 6 months and they still look great. I am searching for an even tougher top coat that won't make them dull so any suggestions are more than welcome! Thanks for all the compliments. :)
