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 (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 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
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
The Scrolling/Script Brush
One of the sign industries most exciting and innovative new brushes affectionately called: "The Virus"The series #444 is a specially blended golden taklon. This recommended design by the industry leaders is perfect for scroll and script work. Available in sizes 0, 1, 2, 4 & 6 (see chart below) This series is a full synthetic filament mixture.
- 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 4/0,2/0,0,2,4 & 6. Available in sizes 4/0, 2/0,0,2,4,6 This series is a full synthetic filament mixture.
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.
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!!
