Tom Kelly's grandfather, O.Z. Crozier, (aka) "The Baron" of Baron Roth & Kelly started striping wagons and buggies for the Studebaker Bros. in the early 1900's. He then striped at the Ford Motor Co. for over 25 years through the 20's-30's and part of the 40's. In the early 50's when striping returned to cars in a custom style, I asked the Baron to stripe my friend's car and he did. My grandfather thought it might be good to go into business striping and he asked me, Kelly, to work with him, so I did. I've been striping every day for the last 53 years. The only brush the Baron and I have ever used is a #1 & #2 Mack Sword Striper from the Andrew Mack Brush Co. For all the new stripers coming into the business, don't be afraid to use a larger brush, you can do anything the smaller brush can do, but the larger brush will go further on a single load of paint. Available as a set or individual sizes 1 & 2
- This brush was manufactured with the beginner in mind and has the quality for the seasoned vets.
- The brush is made with the classic dowel handle and the hair that is used is European dressed blue squirrel hair.
Andrew Mack & Son Brush Company has teamed up with Todd Hanson to create a brush called the "King 13" which is offered in sizes 00000, 000, 00, and 0.We use a 60mm Chinese blue squirrel hair for the 00000 and 000 giving the brush a total length of 1 3/4". We use a 64mm hair for the 00 and 0 which gives the brush a total length of 2". The brush has more pull in the making process giving it a little more taper than a traditional striper. The amount of hair that is distributed onto the handle during the making process is configured differently than our series #10 or #20 brushes. For example, the 00000 and 000 are made on a #00 handle, the 00 is made on a #0 handle, and the 0 is made on a #1 handle. Our technicians are applying the same amount of hair for a say a #00 brush but putting it on a handle that has a larger surface area. Available in sizes: 0000000, 00000, 000, 00, 0 & 1
- 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.
