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
Exactly like the "Mack-Lite," only more belly to the shape in order to carry more paint. Made with kazan squirrel hair. Length out is graduated from 1 5/8" to 2". Available in sizes 00, 0, 1 & 2
What makes the XCaliber special is it's short hair length. Only 1 1/2" vs. the average 2" and 2 1/4". This shorter length allows greater control for intricate designs, as well as long lines. Available in sizes 0000, 000, 00 & 0
Kazan Squirrel - Bronze Handle"Just a hair' faster than the Vortex, but with all the quality, this baby moves right along. As fast as you can think of a design, the typhoon seems to read your mind and anticipate you next move. The hair was chosen for quick response time and accurate placement on any surface. I especially like this brush for motorcycle work because of the curved surfaces and the brushes 'forgiveness' in tight turns. I am amazed at its performance every time I use it." - Steve Chaszeyka Available in 3 sizes. Steve is also featured in our Pinstripers Hall of Fame: Award #9
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 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.
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
