Iíve tried many paint brushes, both cheep and expensive but none leave a finish or can cut a line like a two inch, $0.69 chip brush. The only problem with these brushes is that the bristles readily fall out into the work. Removing them from an otherwise pristine paint job is a time consuming pain in the butt, not to mention the need to tip over the spot risking laying down another bristle right in the same place.
Iíve had some success loading these brushes with varnish, cleaning them out in paint thinner and hanging them, bristles up for a few days. The residue varnish in the brush base goes off and bonds the bristles so they donít fall out so readily. It cut down on the shedding but I was wondering if anyone has a better way to treat these brushes?
