Mr. Brush 2007 - 2012
"Do not go gentle into that good night"
Mr. Brush had a good life. I only ever use one brush when painting, unless I'm painting something big. Mr. Brush painted hundreds of figures over hundreds of hours. There was a time when Mr Brush's hairs formed a point so sharp I used to paint and dot eyes on my 28mm figs with him.
As you can tell, I have a love affair with Windsor & Newton Series 7 brushes. But I'm speaking specifically to the miniature brushes. The shorter hairs give you great control over the paint. You do trade some capacity to load up the bristles. But you shouldn't be spending money on W&N brushes if you're glopping paint. That's not what these brushes are for!
I've moved on now that Mr. Brush is dead. Here's my new painting partner at Mr. Brush's wake. Notice the family resemblance.
Maybe in another five years, Mr. Brush II will be on his deathbed. But for now, I look forward to working with him.
