Brush - Milk Paint
Brush - Milk Paint
This flat brush is another multi-functional brush that can be used to apply paint or oil. The natural bristles hold both products well and the flat bristles allow you to work paint into tight areas.
We find we can easily hold this brush while using Milk Paint. The natural bristle holds the milk paint nicely, slightly absorbing the paint allowing for more control.
It measures 8 1/4 inches in length, including the contoured 5 inch beaver tail handle. The flat head measures 1 1/2 x 3/8 inches, with 2 1/4 inches of dense, firmly epoxied white china bristles.
TIP: All brushes, no matter the price and quality, lose bristles when new. So you don’t need to rush back to the store where you purchased yours for a replacement. As soon as you unwrap your new brush, wash your brush a few times each time holding it firmly and pulling on the bristles to coax any loose hairs out. Always use our Brush Soap to clean your brush well.
- Never leave your natural bristle brushes soaking in a jar of water or solvent for any length of time. This will cause the natural bristles to swell and bend.
- Natural bristles are prone to breakage and minor shedding. Too much pressure on your brush during paint or wax application can increase these tendencies. Expect more shedding during the first few uses, but that will taper off as you use the brushes.
- Cleaning tips: Clean with a quality brush soap to not only clean, but condition the brush. Rub the brush gently in a circular motion in the palm of your hand to remove paint, wax or oil. Rinse well and wrap your brush in paper (construction or kraft paper works best but paper towels will do) and allow to thoroughly dry before use. This will help absorb excess moisture and keep the brush in its original shape.
- If a deep cleaning soak in our odorless solvent (aka mineral spirits) is necessary, rinse with lacquer thinner after soaking to remove the oily residue, and finally clean with soap and water. Wrap your brush in paper (construction or kraft paper works best but paper towels will do) and allow to thoroughly dry before use.
