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 Virus II is made of a soft golden synthetic hair. Designed by "Dave the Letterman" to appease the small crowd of painters who thought the original virus was a touch too stiff. So we decided to make the brush with the same specifications as the original but with a golden synthetic hair that is a little softer. This brush will still be used for the same applications of scroll and script work. Available in sizes 0, 1, 2 & 4 Series 444VII This series is a full synthetic filament mixture.

Don't let the name of this brush fool you!This is a very capable and useful brush made for long lines and a superb brush for design work, and an excellent choice for outlining flames, graphics, etc. After 17 years of using Cosmos then DaVinci 700 long liners for all of my line work I noticed the dreaded "hair falling out syndrome" then the shape consistently changing as the selling price of these brushes continued to rise. All the while always having to grab my trusty Mack blue wrap (series 10) for my design work or any time I had flames or graphics with lots of turns. I'd finally had enough. So teaming up with Mack Brush Company to develop a brush that combined the best of both worlds the Peewee 800 LongLiner was born! This wasn't a one time "hey make a brush like this guys" type of thing. It took many tries and quite a few design changes to ensure the "butterknife" or "sword" shape was just right, not to mention the hair count was refined to maximize the paint carrying abilities for those long lines this brush was intended for. In a nutshell, this is a highly refined Mack Series 10 built with a purpose, and with being a Mack rest assured it will be a workhorse that won't let you down! 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.
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 (Better Half, Big Filly, Shady, Foxy, Super Slim, Lil'Filly, Monkey Whisker) 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.
This new brush is a "work horse!" It's designed for long stripes. The squirrel hair comes from China and it is softer than the traditional Siberian squirrel hair. This is the same hair we use in our #10 Original Mack Striping Brush. It's a very "fast" brush and lays out long lines. DeWayne is also featured in our Pinstripers Hall of Fame: Award #24 Series 1310
"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
