Angular Fitch Liner (4090)

  • Finest 100% White Hog Bristle
  • Seamless Nickel Ferrules
  • Long Blue Varnished Handle
The angular fitch is good for awning work. Sign painters also find it easier to use an angular brush when working on a wall or upright surface. It is good for outdoor work (awnings, walls, bulletins and rough surfaces). This brush is not chiseled. There is no advantage to chisel an angular liner, since most sign painters want an even down stroke. Available in 4 sizes (see chart below) Series 4090

The finest quality multi-diameter, silky soft, flagged Taklon, specially selected and blended together to achieve the performance of the best red sable, but with the durability of a synthetic brush. The ratio of our blend gives you a unique and superior capillary action in the release of color, far beyond other single diameter material offered by other manufacturers. These brushes are very versatile and durable, and I recommend you try them for all your pictorial needs. Also, you can use the two flat brushes for some awesome dry brush effects!
  • The 1/2" or Flat Brush is used for laying in larger areas of background colors, such as, sky, mountains, etc., and also for super dry brush slash effects that are very popular in the automotive paint business.
  • The Shader is a smaller version of the 1/2" and is used for smaller details like rocks, trees, feathers, etc.
  • The Dagger (my personal favorite!) is used for a multitude of things such as long quill like strokes, tall grasses, trees, also straight lines. Just experiment with this one!
  • The Fan Brush can be used for rendering fur, bush, trees, water, etc.
  • The Detailer is used for all tiny strokes like individual hairs, small feathers, etc. Also, I like to use it to do broken outlines around my dry brush strokes and lettering.
Available As A 5 Pc. Set Or Individually! This series is a full synthetic filament mixture.

Introducing the Big Dog.

This brush is similar to Mike's 1/2" Flat Brush above, but twice as big. A full 1" for those really big murals!

For years I tried to paint pictorials with conventional sign brushes, but just didn't get the effect I wanted, not to mention the abuse I put my brushes through! The Black Gold Lavallee/Mack Series are the answer to that problem! If any of these Black/Gold Taklon Brushes get crimped or bent during shipment or storage, they can usually be straightened with boiling hot water. These brushes are also great for any water based paints, as well as, your lettering enamels! If you use them with enamels, just clean and oil them just like your lettering and striping brushes.
  • If you are using them with water based paints, just wash them with mild soap and water.
  • Don't mix oil and water. These brushes are affordable enough to buy a set for each.
  • I'm very proud of these brushes, that's why I have my name on them!!

Lettering Quills

Mack & Meyer Mop (1961)

As most know, Mike Meyer, is the worldwide educator of hand lettering. We thought it would be logical to introduce a series of brushes that he could introduce to all his students in his extensive travels. We have been working on a series of lettering quills that would work well for both the professional and the beginner. We decided on a synthetic sable hair that is like no other synthetic on the market. This synthetic is the closest thing to real sable hair without having to pay the steep sable price. In the last year the price of pure sable has increased by fifty percent and I?m not sure that the price is stable yet! The synthetic sable is unusual in the fact, that it absorbs paint like natural hair. More importantly, it flows out of the brush in a controlled manner. This brush can be used with enamel, urethane and water based paint. We hope that you find this brush to be as versatile as its intended origin. Available in sizes 0,2,4,6,8,10,12,14,16 (see chart below) Series 1961 This series is a full synthetic filament mixture.

New Mixed Quills (389)

Mixture of Squirrel & Ox Hair

Plain lacquered handle

This is a total new concept for quills. These are not the same quality (soft) as our Pure Squirrel Quills (#179, #189).

These brushes are simply an alternative to give you a less expensive quill; a quill that is shorter in length and one that is a little stiffer. "Give it a try!!"

Outliners & Highlighters

The Jenson Swirly Q (JS)

The Jenson's Swirly Q brush is designed for scroll striping and script lettering with enamel based paints. Scroll striping requires thinner paint. If mineral spirits were to be used, the paint would run easier. I recommend using a slow drying automotive reducer for thinning enamel based paints. These can be purchased at your local autobody supply. Clean the brush thoroughly with reducer before and after each use. Never use lacquer thinner! Always store your brush in mineral oil between uses. - Gary Jenson Both Sizes Have The Same Diameter. However The JS-1 is 1 7/16" Out and The JS-2 is 1 11/16" Out. Available in 2 sizes

Liners, Script & Riggers

Myers-Mack Phat Handled Brush (M/M)

  • 1/4" Shader
  • 1/4" Stroke
  • Liner
The handle of the brush was the starting point of this brush design. The handle is a little larger in circumference then a pencil with a dramatic taper into the ferrule of the brush. Ron Myers helped design this brush because he liked the feel of this larger handle. He calls the three brushes that make up this set "The Car Show Set". Ron goes to several car shows a year and likes the fact that he only has to rely on these three brushes and a #10 striper. The 1/4" stroke and liner are straight forward brushes used in traditional fashion. The 1/4" shader was designed for wet on wet paint blending. These extremely durable brushes are made of taklon and are all sold individually. This series is a full synthetic filament mixture. Available in 3 sizes

This brush is another collaboration between Mack Brush and Scott “Cornbread” Lindley.  The hair that was chosen is a Dupont Tymex synthetic.  It is cup chiseled by hand with a tip of a natural bristled brush.  Strong but flexible synthetic hair gives the artist a great workhorse on rougher surfaces.  The brush is offered in sizes ¼”, ½”, ¾” and 1”.

"The Rhino Fitch was developed to have the softness to paint on smooth surfaces, hold a good amount of paint, keep their snap, but have the stiffness to work on rough surfaces such as coating sandblasted signs and wall lettering and pictorials. They are great for blending, lettering, stippling, faux finishes, cutting clean lines and pictorial painting on any surface. True to its namesake this brush is tough and durable." -- Gary Anderson Bloomington Design Available in 6 sizes (see chart below) Series 4080 & 4085

QM Brown Quill with a plain Lacquered Handle

designed by Paul Quinn

The "extended" quill for curley q's, stripes and letters of all types. Available in sizes 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8, 10, 12, 16 - SEVERAL NEW SIZES (see chart below)

This quill was produced as a cost alternative to the traditional German quills. The erosion of the dollar versus the euro has inflated the price of our quills in the last few years. We decided it was time to produce an American made nickel plated ferrule quill to give the painter another cost conscious choice. The traditional quill will always have a place in the sign painter's kit. We have been having tremendous success with the Bobbo Super Quad brush hair so we decided to put that in this quill. The hair that is used is a black synthetic and blue squirrel mixture as opposed to the German quill that is made of pure squirrel hair. The quill has been put through the paces by several sign painters and the reviews have been outstanding. Available in sizes 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8, 10, 12, 14, & 16 Series 169

A shorter handle for smaller hands, or for people who prefer that the handle not rest in the palm of the hand. You can easily turn this handle between your thumb and index finger. This handle works with all brush heads, but is especially good with the Lazer Line head. Also available in Fiery Amber.

Mack/Tidwell brushes? Well, I didn't set out to reinvent the wheel, however, I wanted to make a brush set for other artists like myself, illustrators who work in a few mediums. When you're working on finks, eyeballs, monsters, etc...these brushes will prove themselves invaluable. The purpose of the set is to make all of your detail work faster and easier, plain and simple. These brushes work great with enamels, acrylics, oils, and I'm sure they will work with just about any other medium. You have the Mini, Lil'Bit, Slim, Skinny, Lil'Bit More, and Flat Top. The handles are a little fatter in the belly (where you grab 'em), so they have a little more room for normal-sized hands (see the picture for a good idea). It's not much, but I like to think it's just enough. The bristles vary depending on the brush size and configuration. The smaller brushes are made of a softer, fine quality synthetic. The large flat and the long outliner are made with golden synthetic. I chose synthetic because these brushes are much easier to care for and keep their shape extremely well. Both types of bristles have smooth paint delivery while keeping a little spring to them. All of the brushes are super useful and you will find yourself reaching for them in a hundred different situations. They blend paint really well without the brush strokes of stiffer bristles. They also work for lines, shading, and for sharp detail. The brushes really speak for themselves. There are a couple of other brushes that the set needs, so we are working on those now. I know there is no perfect brush or brush set for everyone, but I seriously doubt you'll find a more useful brush set at this price point or any for that matter. Not to mention, they are the only brushes on Earth with brass knuckles stamped on the handles! - Jeral Tidwell This series is a full synthetic filament mixture.
