Von Dago Autograph Brush (VD-Auto)
Introducing the latest brush from the Von Dago collection, the Von Dago Autograph. We are having great success with this synthetic sable hair which is also used in Von Dago’s Mini Saber and Saber Liner series. Let’s look at what the artist has to say about this brush.
“Using my favorite synthetic hair in this brush for longevity, it’s only a mere 3/4″ out from the Ferrule. Whether it be on canvas art or vehicles, I like to personally sign my name to look like a stamp, time after time, so the public – and my peers – can easily tell who striped the car they are admiring, whether it be displayed at a car show or parked in a parking lot.
I designed this brush solely for this purpose – for absolute consistency over ‘n over ‘n over! Plus, if you strictly use it for what it’s intended for, it should last you at least a couple of years.
Now we all know you can sign a name with any type of brush, but once again – and speaking only for myself – I want absolute no stress and no hassle consistency.
I want people to be able to read my name, not guess at it, you know?” – Von Dago
This series is a full synthetic filament mixture.
This new brush is a "work horse!" It's designed for long stripes. The squirrel hair comes from China and it is softer than the traditional Siberian squirrel hair. This is the same hair we use in our #10 Original Mack Striping Brush. It's a very "fast" brush and lays out long lines. DeWayne is also featured in our Pinstripers Hall of Fame: Award #24 Series 1310
Andrew Mack & Son Brush Company has teamed up with Todd Hanson to create a brush called the "King 13" which is offered in sizes 00000, 000, 00, and 0.We use a 60mm Chinese blue squirrel hair for the 00000 and 000 giving the brush a total length of 1 3/4". We use a 64mm hair for the 00 and 0 which gives the brush a total length of 2". The brush has more pull in the making process giving it a little more taper than a traditional striper. The amount of hair that is distributed onto the handle during the making process is configured differently than our series #10 or #20 brushes. For example, the 00000 and 000 are made on a #00 handle, the 00 is made on a #0 handle, and the 0 is made on a #1 handle. Our technicians are applying the same amount of hair for a say a #00 brush but putting it on a handle that has a larger surface area. Available in sizes: 0000000, 00000, 000, 00, 0 & 1

Don't let the name of this brush fool you!This is a very capable and useful brush made for long lines and a superb brush for design work, and an excellent choice for outlining flames, graphics, etc. After 17 years of using Cosmos then DaVinci 700 long liners for all of my line work I noticed the dreaded "hair falling out syndrome" then the shape consistently changing as the selling price of these brushes continued to rise. All the while always having to grab my trusty Mack blue wrap (series 10) for my design work or any time I had flames or graphics with lots of turns. I'd finally had enough. So teaming up with Mack Brush Company to develop a brush that combined the best of both worlds the Peewee 800 LongLiner was born! This wasn't a one time "hey make a brush like this guys" type of thing. It took many tries and quite a few design changes to ensure the "butterknife" or "sword" shape was just right, not to mention the hair count was refined to maximize the paint carrying abilities for those long lines this brush was intended for. In a nutshell, this is a highly refined Mack Series 10 built with a purpose, and with being a Mack rest assured it will be a workhorse that won't let you down! Available in sizes: 00, 0 & 1
The conversation to introduce a liner and scroller/pinstriper was discussed for quite a while before it finally became a reality. We tried many different blends of hair whether it is natural, mixed or full synthetic. Von Dago decided on a full synthetic which is our synthetic sable. This is the latest and greatest synthetic on the market today! It is unusual in the fact that it absorbs the paint and flows off the fibers in a controlled manner. This hair absorbs like a sponge. I knew we were on to something when Von Dago, a natural hair enthusiast, fell in love with this synthetic. This brush is offered in sizes 4/0,2/0,0,2,4 & 6. Available in sizes 4/0, 2/0,0,2,4,6 This series is a full synthetic filament mixture.
Tom Kelly's grandfather, O.Z. Crozier, (aka) "The Baron" of Baron Roth & Kelly started striping wagons and buggies for the Studebaker Bros. in the early 1900's. He then striped at the Ford Motor Co. for over 25 years through the 20's-30's and part of the 40's. In the early 50's when striping returned to cars in a custom style, I asked the Baron to stripe my friend's car and he did. My grandfather thought it might be good to go into business striping and he asked me, Kelly, to work with him, so I did. I've been striping every day for the last 53 years. The only brush the Baron and I have ever used is a #1 & #2 Mack Sword Striper from the Andrew Mack Brush Co. For all the new stripers coming into the business, don't be afraid to use a larger brush, you can do anything the smaller brush can do, but the larger brush will go further on a single load of paint. Available as a set or individual sizes 1 & 2
