I am from the Indiana, I am doing mostly whatever I am paid to be doing. Sometimes I do more then I am paid for doing, these are the times when I am doing stupidly the work.
China bristle I am using for doing the oil paints, they are not working with the water based paints so well. Swelling up they are from the waters, the same as my wife after having kids.
Goodbye

Hi from California (North America). I am the painter for many years. In California i do most interior walls and ceiling with flat paint and use only nylon/polyester brushes. Because if I ever got caught using china bristle with water borne paint, I would be beaten by my fellow painters and found with china bristle shoved in my pie hole. Goodbye.

Never argue with a fool - they will drag you down to their level, then beat you with experience.

Welcome to PT. You must run a lot of oil paint over there in Croatia?
Swans and Glides are good but next time you order try a Corona Excaliber.

As with any brush you either like them or you don't. I am into the Corona Chinex brushes right now and I either buy them online or pick them up at my local PPG.

Probably why I don't see them much, I never buy from PP&G. I tried to do business with them, blah, blah, blah.
I'm sure they are good brushes, if you use them, I'm going to check one out.

In Croatia we have a few domestic producers. They produce inexpensive paints for undemanding customers. These are mainly white paints that can not be cleaned with water and must be added to the concentrated color.They cost about $ 20 for a bucket of 15 liters (approximately 4 galon). For quality interior work we use Dulux, Caparol and Oikos water based paints.

Yes, if I find a shop that delivers Corona to Croatia, thanks to the proposal. First I will try this Purdy´s which I bought.
