A Quality Paint Brush makes a huge difference for the applicator, and the craftsmanship you will achieve!
It is always kind of funny for me, a seasoned pro, to watch the DIY'er in the local big box shop.....
They Buy a $50 gallon of paint and a crappy brush, roller cover, etc.....
Paint companies continue to reinvent a gallon of paint and suck the unsuspecting customer into over paying for their material. Yet, leave them on their own to choose junks tools. Now I know some jobs require disposable tools, I have been in the business of painting for over 25 years.
Yet, your typical homeowner is usually looking to paint their home. This is considered finish work! Finish work requires better tools to achieve higher levels of craftsmanship.
My intent here is to give you a few options that make more sense for the average DIY'er.
When choosing to spend big bucks on a gallon of paint here are some higher quality paint brushes to consider.
Good: Proform Picasso Paint Brush This is a great brush. I have used many of these and my guys really like them. One thing to understand about the Proform Picasso Paint Brush is that they are not a great brush for the hardcore professional. They are great for medium usage when you desire a quality finish. A great Brush for the DIY'er who is not planning on this brush lasting for many years.
Better: Wooster Alpha Wooster has a long standing tradition for professionals who seek high quality tools. I love many of my Wooster tools. Wooster has many quality levels with price increases as they change the durability of the brush. This line is a great option for the DIY'er willing to spend a little more for a brush. You will have equal results as the Proform Picasso brush, the Wooster will give you a few more paint jobs if taken care of properly.
Best: Purdy Clearcut If you asked most professionals to name a type of paint brush, the consensus would be an overwhelming recognition to the Purdy brand. Purdy has many quality levels of paint brushes for the consumer. The Clearcut is one of the more economical paint brushes manufactured by Purdy, but a top option for the DIY'er. My guys use lost of Purdy paint brushes and often they give us years of faithful service.
Paint brushes must be cleaned after each use. If you fail to wash your equipment properly you will surely ruin them after your first use. When you consider the project you are going to tackle next, choose the best brush. Feel free to share your experience or ask any question by commenting below.
