Default European Style Brush

I was over in Rome years ago and saw this painter painting with one of these and have wanted one ever since..........this brush can go every direction...up, down, left , right without sacrificing paint load ........they have larger ones out there but i havent been able to find them yet



what do you guys think ???

I have a Hamilton brush from the UK, other than that I will have to wait for the overseas guys to chime in.

I saw you were on and was hoping for the blindfolded door video.

I was just playing with you, I am pleased that you have been a lot more controlled since your ban and when you seen you were getting worked up you took a break, there is hope for you yet.

Like I said I have never used those brushes.

Useless brushes guys......the 1" are the only half decent one, they come in handy for sash windows.....the rest are only good enough for back scratchers

I have seen, but not used this type of brush. I think FPE recommends these brushes for their products. I guess that since Euro painters have been using them for a looooong time, and to be a Painter there,(capital P) one has to apprentice, and train and school for a good while, they might be good...

Welcome back Ole34!
Trust me they are useless brushes.......I'm from Ireland and we have to serve a 4 year apprenticeship with a year of that in a training centre before we are qualified...don't waste your money on any of them brushes they are just marketed to you as European brushes over here they tell us that they are American brushes!

dunno.
why is Behr still in use?

so many mysteries, the list could become rather lengthy...I trust the Irish guy.

although they do have a rather intelligent look to them, and if a painter whipped one out and went to work I would be intrigued.

Here are a few FOR YOUR VIEWING. The range you will see are for left handed painters.

I only use them on sash windows and only in traditional oil paints. No good for w/b paint.

The Namel Vars by Hamilton aren't bad Sean
