Default Decent brush in Canada

What decent brushes are available in Canada? If I order Corona from the US the shipping is crazy. As far as corona is concerned what model for trim, walls and for quick drying hard to to spread paint?

Just saw on line that Home depot in Canada and US has switched to Wooster from Purdy. The Canadian Wooster's are not on the Wooster site though.

Noir is a Canadian brand. I hear they're pretty decent if you get the top line ones.

I use those and am happy with them, but they are called NOUR, I also like the Pintar Chinex Legend. Pintar is a Canadian company.

I have been using Nour Signature series but the last ones I bought seemed to be of less quality. It is a line that is not even listed on their site.

Be dang careful ordering brushes off of e-bay! lots of them are defective brushes that people are trying to pawn off on rubes as non-defective.

I've hearx good things about Zachary brushes from painters online. I think they are csnadian. You can find their information on Instagram, I haven't looked into their website, and I haven't tried the brushes out.

After trying every single brand of brush available around here, I've resigned myself to driving 80Km to the closest Dulux store couple of times a year to buy a bunch of their store brand brushes. They're actually really good and if you can catch their sales they go for half price.

Tried out my Picasso's today on some trim. Cut in nicely. Especially along top of baseboard.

Dulux used to sell them. Back when they were ICI Paints. Out in Vancouver. But that was years ago. I don't remember seeing them there last time I went here in Ontario.


Amazon.ca has them as well. They aren't exactly cheap though. Roughly $30 per brush. Don't want to forget that one wrapped up in the van at the end of the day.

$40 thatís way too much. Iím paying $19. Benjamin Moore stores might be able to order you some. SW is purdy only. Cloverdale is Wooster only. Dulux is also Wooster. Try small private paint stores also.
