Eh, this brush makes you as tall as a giant and as small as a midget! https://www.amazon.com/Wooster-Brush.../dp/B0019EWITW

I use mostly chip brushes they don't shed as much as some Purdy's I've had in the past.

I seem to be the only one fond of 2" brushes. ( unless I'm doing stain or fences.) My current favorite is Pintar's Chinex legend And I always use an angled sash brush, I hate the straight cut brushes.

The only thing I ever use 2" angled bushes for is sashes. The 3" straight brush was my bread n' butter. It all in what you cut your teeth with.

I loved 2"Oxythin brushes when they were available and when I ran several million miles of steel jambs in office leases. I prefer a straight cut brush because of all that. I recall using one of the 2" Oxy's on a house when I was working for a house painter on the exterior of a house and he was seriously aghast that I was using that instead of- I guess- a 3" latex brush. Aside from it being the best brush I had for oil, it was the only brush I had for oil. I wasn't trying to beat the guy on time/money. I told him if that was my intent, I woulda used an artist brush. The thing is, if you're comfortable with something and can make it work, why not?

@Fman , I think the brushes we used as apprentices tend to be our favorites. We develop a feel for them, know what to expect and none of us like surprises on a job. We all prefer things to work as they always have so we don't need to think about it. At the end of the day, we just want to get the job done!

I am liking this Corona. Couldn't ask for more. It looks like I took the hardware off. My brush is better than yours...-20191004_170013.jpg

So, you never watch reruns of Northern Exposure?

So you're saying you can't teach a new dog, old tricks?

Not at all! Brushes just tend to be something we get used to the feel of and tend to stick with comfort brushes, that does not mean we don't find new ones that serve better in specific situations.

I’m a 2” oval angled sash brush ALL THE WAY!

2.5 always feels too big & uncomfortable all day & 1-1.5” is just too dang small.

I constantly have a stash of new 2” just in case I ever need one cuz god forbid I pass on a sale of my favorites when they happen

New chip brushes or old worn down ones that you’ve cleaned & kept?!

I love my old ones...they’re all taped up for soft grip n well loved but starting a new one always gives me fits, even after I brush n pull hairs for 15 minutes before painting.

Ohhh so cool!! The new versions of those brushes are sold today by FPOE & some other retailers that still make OBE. They say its an amazing tool for painting spindles, railings, etc...

But in my part of the job we use um for glazes, pouncing, softening & blending. I have um in many different sizes & they’re my babies. Pierre Finklestein makes the best versions I’ve found so far.

He’s got a good video that explains how to tie them so they maintain their shape and keep paint or oil glaze from getting too deep into the brush when pouncing.
