(Grumbacher Replacement)The Grumbacher Company was sold several years ago and the company that purchased Grumbacher discontinued many of the quality brush products. When the two Grumbacher stripers were no longer offered we found the company who had been making these for Grumbacher and began offering the same brush, but with our name on the handle. Unfortunately, that manufacturing company went out of business in mid 2002 and we assume the assets were purchased by a company in India. We were concerned about quality, distance, exchange rates etc., so we worked with several "Grumbacher users" and developed our own version of the old Grumbacher 1010. We can not offer the 1020 black plastic handle, since we would have to buy too many handles to get a cost effective price. Stripers who worked with us to develop this new brush also suggested that it be a bit longer. From this research came the New "Mach-One". Available in sizes 00, 0, 1, & 2 (see chart below) | Wooden Lacquered Handle (#101)
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
