Pure Bristle Brushes

Ease of application and a successful finish are hugely affected by the quality of a brush. Remember, whether you choose natural or synthetic bristle brushes, a good brush is not cheap, and it should have long bristles of equal length. It is normal for a brush to shed a few bristles when it is first used, however, this should not continue through the life of a brush. Good-quality pure bristle brushes are expensive but will last for years if they are cleaned well and stored properly after each use.
