Do you know how to pick out the right paint brush?
Don’t make the mistake of picking out whatever’s on sale. Research your options, then go to the store. Imagine a painless shopping trip to get all the supplies you need all at once!
If you plan on painting yourself, it’s important to know what paint brush to use for what purpose. According to Sherwin-Williams here’s how you know:
- “Natural-bristle brushes made with animal hairs are used for applying oil base paints, varnishes, shellac, polyurethane and other oil base finishes. The natural ‘flagging’ (splitting or fuzzy tips) of these brushes creates split ends in the bristles that hold more paint and help assure a smooth paint release and finish.
- Blended nylon/polyester brushes are easy to clean and work well with all types of latex paints. The combination of nylon's durability and polyester's shape retention is the mark of a high-quality brush - one that also produces a high-quality paint finish. What's more, these durable brushes are built to handle numerous projects. So, with proper care, nylon / polyester brushes should last for years.
- Polyester brushes are best for latex paints. These brushes hold their shape and stiffness in any paint and apply paint smoothly and evenly.”
