I recently started carrying a new line of paint brushes and while I’ve been using them almost daily, I haven’t had a chance to post about them yet, so here’s some more information on these wonderful new paint brushes : The CLING ON! is being handmade in Holland, a superb paintbrush, especially meant for working with (all) waterborne paints. Whether it’s a primer, an enamel, 2K epoxy, a (structured) wall paint, adhesive, stain or varnish: it all goes smoothly with a CLING ON!; so smooth you will fall in love with it…Super sharp cutting in, fuller and smoother finish, very easy to clean and all this with less effort and, very important: in less time! Dutch style paint brushes, filled with the highest quality American-made synthetic filaments available.
I’ve been very pleased with these brushes for all of the reasons mentioned above, and because the paint doesn’t dry on the bristles like it tends to do with all of the other brushes I’ve ever used. It’s also very comfortable in my hand while I’m painting…anyone that has painted for a long time or even just painted one large piece in a single setting can probably identify with what I like to call the “Painter’s Claw” position your hand winds up in! I have not had this happen with the Cling On! brushes, and that alone makes me happy:)
Here are some tips for using and caring for these brushes: Let your CLING ON! absorb some water before using it for the first time, so it gets the proper flex. Remove excess water by spinning the handle between the palms of your hands and it’s ready for use. While painting, re-wet the brush as necessary. Keeping the brush damp will prevent paint from hardening on the bristles and minimize brush strokes. When you’re done painting, rinse, and lay them flat to dry or keep them hanging in water (not touching the bottom). The filaments are specially treated to release the paint. The next day almost all paint will have left the brush. Just rinse, spin out the remaining water and you’re ready to paint again or store the brush.
