My Brushes

These are the brushes I use every day. They are not special, and they are not expensive, and they are not new (for the most part). I'm used to them and they do a great job. If one gets loose and wobbly, I wrap a bit of masking tape around it, so that it's right again (maybe just like my uncle used to tape his eyelid to his brow when he got old and his lid didn't work quite right any more). Well, maybe not exactly like that, but you get my drift. It's really only the last 6 brushes or so that I use every day, and the small house painting brush is used only to spread my left-over paints onto thin papers for collages later. It's not necessary to spend a lot of money on brushes. I can't recall the last time I bought a brush, and when I do buy a new brush, it's usually just a tiny sable brush for little details. Don't feel that an old, gnarly, messed up brush should be thrown out...it will work just fine for a number of things. You just have to watch what it will do...and what it will not do....
