Friday Finds: What Paintbrush is Right for You?
Don’t suffer through beginner’s errors when it comes to painting; make an educated choice with your paintbrush. You may not think about your paintbrush as much as your paint color, but Roseville Sales Associate at Hirshfield’s, James Stoffel, believes you really should. So, what brush should you be using? It all depends on the project you’re going to tackle.
Exterior Painting Projects
Generally exterior paints are latex or acrylic based. An extra firm brush with man-made bristles will work the best. Stoffel explains that without a synthetic brush,“when it’s warm and humid the bristles will start to get soft and not follow your direction.” The cleaner line of a firm man-made brush will give you more control.
