Natural China Bristle Brushes
- The traditional brush for varnish and oil based products, they are also great for applying shellac and lacquer. Not recommended for water base products.
OMEGA LILY OVAL VARNISH
Made in Italy, this premium brush is manufactured from the
finest white china bristle and has a sculpted, well-balanced lacquered beech
handle. Not only is it pretty to look at -- it's a pleasure to hold. It's set
into a nickel ferrule. This brush has about double the thickness of a
conventional brush so it's perfect for flowing on finishes like varnish, oils,
lacquer and shellac. For interior varnishing of household trim, this brush is
unequalled as it holds an incredible amount of finish and the chisel edge cuts
in extremely well.
OMEGA LILY FILBERT VARNISH
Similar to the brush above but less thick and
more of a standard chisel profile. Just about the perfect brush for general
lacquer, shellac and varnish. The slightly rounded edges make it easy to use on
profiles. Lacquered wood handle, nickel ferrule and incredibly fine white china
bristle made by the legendary Omega Brushworks in Italy.
Synthetic Bristle Brushes
Use for water based
stains and topcoats. These brushes are also great for lacquer and shellac.
They clean easier than natural bristle brushes.
DELUXE GOLDEN TAKLON - This synthetic brush is the best brush
we've ever used for waterbase finishes and shellac. This Taklon filament is made
under extremely tight processes which produces a filament that is extremely
smooth. This makes this brush one of the easiest brushes to clean that we've
ever used. Our manufacturer uses an unfinished wood handle and a metal
water-resistant ferrule. A fine chiseled edge allows precise application of
finish in corners. If you've ever had problems brushing a
waterbase or shellac finish you definitely need to try this brush!

7100 GOLDEN TAKLON
WOODSHOP NEWS 2006 READERS' CHOICE AWARD!
(See June 2006 issue)
We're pleased to offer this
indispensable and unique brush. The Athena brand replaces the Winsor
Newton #580 and is an exact duplicate in terms of price, style and features. This brush has no reservoir
because of its fine soft bristles and sharp edge, it's just about the best
brush you'll find for applying shellac and water based finishes, particularly
where a precise edge and control are necessary for your projects. Excellent for complicated shapes
and profiles as well as tight corners. For those students who take my classes,
they know this is the brush I reach for first.

Golden Taklon bristle used in our premium finish brushes, they form a fine,
round tip. Use the #4 for applying background color and the smaller #1 for
painting grain lines. They can be used with any medium, but are perfectly suited
to our Mixol Colors above.
