Bobbo-Mack Super Quad (B/M SQ)
Bobbo’s “Super Quad” 4 Action Brush
This is another development between Bobbo and Mack Brush Co. to bring to the pinstriper-artist a new brush to fulfill some of the difficult tasks of using a brush to it’s fullest. This brush because of it’s shorter bristles and fine blue squirrel & black synthetic hair makes scrolling easier and faster. It also pinstripes short lines, 2-4 feet in length without having to change brushes. Plus it will let you letter your signature very small and also do small script lettering. This brush has adequate snap and flexibility other brushes don’t have. This allows the pinstriper/scroller to use one brush for four purposes without having to change brushes or color. The drawing to the left shows the correct position to hold the brush, 65-85 degrees and only using one fourth inch to only one half inch of the tip. Any deeper into the hairs will widen the lines and disfigure your artwork. Heavy pressure and lifting the brush as you drag your line will give a long teardrop effect. The drawing shows how to use the brush.
Available in sizes 00, 0, 1 & 2
The new 3 piece paint brush set
Five Speed:Which is a larger version of the " SLIM" from the original set. The five speed is basically a #5 script / scroll brush as the slim was basically a #3 or so.
Heavy:Which is a larger version of the "LIL BIT MORE" ... it's a little longer and fatter so it has a ton of uses... seriously.
One-Liner:This is a completely new brush... it is Amazing for outlining, details, med. to long lines within an illustration.
The Trickster is a striper with a handle length of 4-1/4". Jim Norris helped design this brush and with his sign painting background likes the longer length of a brush handle. For the stripers that prefer a shorter handle the modification is quick and easy. The striper is made of pure blue squirrel hair and has a length out of 2-1/4". The long length of the hair allows the brush to carry a good load of paint for a long distance. You can stand the brush up on the tip to create super fine lines even with the larger sizes. Available in sizes 00, 0 & 1
Blue Squirrel - Grey Handle"If you use scroll striping, you'll love this brush! After 30 years of scrolling we've developed what I think is the finest brush available for this style. It gives beautiful controlled lines that respond exactly to your movements without the slightest hesitation, splitting or fraying in the turns. It holds its line throughout the pattern and gives you more response - like the most expensive brushes used for scrolling. I recommend this for beginners as well as seasoned veterans of this style." - Steve Chaszeyka Available in 3 sizes Steve is also featured in our Pinstripers Hall of Fame: Award #9
- 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.
The conversation to introduce a liner and scroller/pinstriper was discussed for quite a while before it finally became a reality. We tried many different blends of hair whether it is natural, mixed or full synthetic. Von Dago decided on a full synthetic which is our synthetic sable. This is the latest and greatest synthetic on the market today! It is unusual in the fact that it absorbs the paint and flows off the fibers in a controlled manner. This hair absorbs like a sponge. I knew we were on to something when Von Dago, a natural hair enthusiast, fell in love with this synthetic. This brush is offered in sizes 00 thru 2. Available in sizes 00,0,1,2 This series is a full synthetic filament mixture.
This brush offering, is a modification of the Bobbo Super Quad. We are using the same mixture of hair that is offered in the Bobbo, which is a black synthetic and blue squirrel blend, but with extended hair lengths of 1 3/4" to 2". We have had great success with the Bobbo brush, and have had requests for a longer hair length version. With the mixture of hair that is used, this provides medium versatility for enamels as well as urethanes without compromising performance. The smaller sizes offer intricate design work capabilities coupled with tight cornering. As you progress to the higher sizes the brush will allow you to do longer line work with thicker consistent line quality. These brushes will offer the individual a high quality striper, outliner, and scroller. Available in sizes 000, 00, 1 & 2
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. 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.
After more than a year of development, we are super stoked to have a hand full of the coolest and most versatile paint brushes we have ever offered. For this set, Jeral consulted with one of the most well rounded painters he has ever know... his wife Sarah. With her input, the set was elevated to a whole new level. This 7 pc. set is the next step in our collective painting evolution. Long lines, tiny details, smooth shading, and just plain ole rocking it out... these bad boys have got you covered. This series is a full synthetic filament mixture.
