Introducing one of our latest brushes…a “speed flat” with the same great Taklon hair as some of our other brushes. We have fallen into a “gold mine” with this hair. The Golden Boys are great for lettering and fill work. We offer 4 distinctive sizes ranging from 3/16″-1/2″ ferrule size and all at 1-3/4″ in hair length. These brushes hold a lot of paint and have great control! You may have seen this brush in the “Gold Leaf” issue of Auto Art Magazine, used by Dick “Thinman” Crawford. He has found this brush to be useful in laying down sizing when preparing for gold and/or silver leafing. He indicated that it allows the sizing to glide smoothly onto the surface. It withstands the harsher chemicals and cleaners better than any other brush he’s tried!
Long Polished Double Handle. This handle is great for mobile sign painters and pinstripers! You can run it with two different brush heads for economy of use and helps prevent contamination of the hair when you are switching between brushes on small jobs. This is a very well balanced long handle for lettering and other activities where a quill, outliner, signature, scroll or pictorial brush head would be used. Also available in Fiery Amber.

This is our original striping brush head. Designed for long, straight lines, it has a full belly to hold a lot of paint, yet is still agile enough for turns and curves. A great all-around striping brush! Available in sizes 00, 0, & 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)
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
