The Jenson Swirly Q (JS)
The Jenson’s Swirly Q brush is designed for scroll striping and script lettering with enamel based paints. Scroll striping requires thinner paint. If mineral
spirits were to be used, the paint would run easier. I recommend using a slow drying automotive reducer for thinning enamel based paints. These can be purchased at your local autobody supply. Clean the brush thoroughly with reducer before and after each use. Never use lacquer thinner! Always store your brush in mineral oil between uses.

This quill was produced as a cost alternative to the traditional German quills. The erosion of the dollar versus the euro has inflated the price of our quills in the last few years. We decided it was time to produce an American made nickel plated ferrule quill to give the painter another cost conscious choice. The traditional quill will always have a place in the sign painter's kit. We have been having tremendous success with the Bobbo Super Quad brush hair so we decided to put that in this quill. The hair that is used is a black synthetic and blue squirrel mixture as opposed to the German quill that is made of pure squirrel hair. The quill has been put through the paces by several sign painters and the reviews have been outstanding. Available in sizes 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8, 10, 12, 14, & 16 Series 169
This brush is another collaboration between Mack Brush and Scott “Cornbread” Lindley. The hair that was chosen is a Dupont Tymex synthetic. It is cup chiseled by hand with a tip of a natural bristled brush. Strong but flexible synthetic hair gives the artist a great workhorse on rougher surfaces. The brush is offered in sizes ¼”, ½”, ¾” and 1”. Available in 4 sizes (see chart below) This series is a full synthetic filament mixture.
Plain HandlesThe grey quill is also handmade in France & Germany and it is equally as important as the brown as an essential brush for the sign painter. This is a universal lettering brush. The grey hair has more snap than the brown. It is used for general commercial work such as signs, truck lettering, boats, etc. The grey hair is more durable than the brown, and this brush is suitable for lettering on most surfaces.
