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. You have the Mini, Lil'Bit, Slim, Skinny, Lil'Bit More, and Flat Top. 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 This series is a full synthetic filament mixture.
"Once upon a time in Michigan, Texas, and California, lived a lazy pinstriper. He wanted to make a lot of money fast. This pinstriper was busy with dealer lots, asphalt, dirt, and gravel. He pinstriped 20-30 cars per day in sun, rain, and wind. He started with a Grumbacher 1010, but when the wind blew, the little brush was taken by the wind. He wanted a brush the wind would not bother. He called Grumbacher and they made him a brush with taklon bristles. All was well, but the lazy pinstriper was still not happy. He now wanted to pull longer lines. He called Grumbacher again, but they sent him too short of a brush. He was told they had been conquered by the evil Kohinoors. The lazy pinstriper contacted the Maine Brush Company, but the Maine Brush Company was also conquered. The search continued for the magic bristle, leading the lazy pinstriper to the Andrew Mack & Son's Brush Company. Other brush makers suggested a blend of natural and synthetic bristles. The blend was highly sought after, a rare commodity, and soon to be extinct. He called Chris at Andrew Mack & Son Brush Company and cried, "Woe is me! These other nitwits forgot the formula and can't find the hair (or their ferrules either). The mighty Chris said, “Have no fear, I have an idea!” There is a new taklon and we can do it! After much trial, the Longstriper 1111 was created, the homage to the Grumbacher 1010 as per Spinal Tap where their amps went to 11. If you do commercial work, you are going to love these. This is the best straight line brush I have ever used. Moisture has no effect on this brush and the wind's 20mph is no match for this brush." -Michael Menard Available in sizes 00, 0, & 1 (#1111)
