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

After more than a year of development, we are super stoked to have a hand full of the coolest and most versatile paint brushes we have ever offered. For this set, Jeral consulted with one of the most well rounded painters he has ever know... his wife Sarah. With her input, the set was elevated to a whole new level. This 7 pc. set is the next step in our collective painting evolution. Long lines, tiny details, smooth shading, and just plain ole rocking it out... these bad boys have got you covered.

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
"The Extreme Liner" is made with blue squirrel hair which holds a good load of paint to carry a very fine line a very long way. Alan Johnson designed this brush especially for outlining gold lettering where crisp fine lines are essential. It works fantastic for tight intricate work. www.alanjohnsongrafix.com Available in sizes 0, 1 & 2 (see chart below)
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
- This brush was manufactured with the beginner in mind and has the quality for the seasoned vets.
- The brush is made with the classic dowel handle and the hair that is used is European dressed blue squirrel hair.
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 This series is a full synthetic filament mixture.
