Has anybody seen or used this paint brush? I bought one at my BM Dealer. Looks identical to the ProForm Picasso, also about same price $11.90 out the door.

Just used a 3in angled Picasso for the first time. I was impressed.

I've bought a bunch of angled 3" Picassos- really like them. Hold a load of paint and can be very precise. Even the non angled Picassos are great. I have a 2.5 flat oval Picasso, it is awesome!

Picasso's are all I use. But I have to order them online. I will give a try to this one and see how it does.

Let me know how it wears. I tried one and liked it, but it seemed to get stiff and broom out real fast. Longevity sucked.
No wait, maybe that was an alpha?

Good to know. I have not tried other brushes of their's yet. Corona's Chicago Loop is very nice ox hair for oil trim. Only bust those out for special jobs. Oil and good ox hair brushes are top notch stuff for the jobs that are worthy.

In comparison to the Picasso, the Alpha and Silver Tip are more bulky. i would not categorize either Alpha or Silver Tip with the Picasso. They really are vastly different brushes from tip design, to form, to hold capacity, to sharpness and even level of finish. The Alpha and Silver Tip are blunt-cut. The Picasso is tapered chiseled cut.

It looks like a shark bit it in half.
Is it a shark bite?
