Dear Purdy –
The ONLY thing this paint brush did right today was clean up nice at the end of the day. While that is a nice quality in a brush, it is not exactly headliner material.
Everything in between was a crap show:
- It wouldn’t hold paint.
- It wouldn’t release paint.
- No edge for cutting.
- Spread like a rake.
I had advised last December that you NOT mess with your brushes in this post. Now, I might suggest that you mess with this brush.
Oddly, it is a brush that we have had great experiences with in similar product and process situations. What a disappointment and let down. Not sure if the Chinex bristle filaments have been messed with, but this was a disaster.
I am starting to think that brush manufacturers are further behind the curve than any product or tool manufacturer in the paint industry.
The manufacturer website description of the product describes it as designed for use in oil and waterborne products. Must be really good in oil. But how much oil are painters really spreading these days?
We can do better than this.
