Default Plastic Brush Covers?

Anybody know a place to pick up some plastic brush covers? SW used to sell them but discontinued them. Probably because peoples brushes lasted 3 times as long so they were making less on brush sales?

Going to get some sheets of plastic/velcro & use a current cover as a template to just make my own. Figured I'd ask first before I wasted my time.

I told Carter that Rustoleum needs to start making some. But breathable so the brushes dont get moldy. Thats how they can get on the pros good sides.

Good thinking... I shall make my custom covers breathable too. If they work out well, I'm hiring some illegals & starting a production line in my basement.

i was excited when i saw those plastic covers at sh wms a few years back,,,,,

then they failed at the top fold,,,,,,they didnt last long,,,,,they all tore at the fold

i had been envisioning a plastic keeper forn several years,,,,,,,,,and sh wms was close, but they used the wrong material imo

They used to come on Nutec brushes, I sold them at Duron Paints years ago, Nutec went under, I tried finding their source of plastic covers but got nowhere, they were a good quality, my Nutec brush's cover is still good and i have had it over 5 years. If you start making them, maybe i could help sell them for you

Sorry it took so long, but yea those would be them. If your feeling ambitious your best bet would be just buy one of them, trace it onto your own leather, and then you can make as many as you want rather than buy two dozen.

I just emailed the guy to test drive a 3" cover. If it pans out, I'll give some feedback here.

they are solid but here is my quam... when you fold the sides over it doesnt get the tight fit that the paper covers do (because it is leather so it kind of bends rather than a tight fold). So when you take the leather off theres a chance that the shape could be a little off, or there could be a few stray bristles that werent quite brought back into the rest. Obviously they suck back in once they are in paint, but I think we can all agree that when you take a brush out of the cover and its nice and straight its a good way to start the day. The other thing is that I really only use pro glides which have 100mm bristles, other brushes might fit better/worse??

Pretty neat idea. I've used foil too but it doesn't breathe unless you put a couple holes in it. What's funny is I was at Wally the other day and picking up some thinner (closest place) and saw some "cheap brushes" that did come in plastic covers, funny the brushes we use don't.
