The Wilco Brush Vest – keeping bristles in shape
If you buy a high quality synthetic bristle brush for water based paint, you need to look after it –
1 – keep it clean – check!
2 – Keep bristles in shape. Hmmm. There are a few bodgit ways involving paper, cardboard and elastic bands to do that. (See below)
It is fair to say there is a problem to solve here, and TP-recommended suppliers, My Paint Brush, are launching a new product to keep your lovely cleaned Picasso and co in tip top order…
The Wilco Brush Vest
First impressions, as I haven’t tried one, (such was the veil of secrecy around this): The sleeve for damp brushes looks like it does what it says on the tin.
– Looks better able to cope with damp bristles than the protective card that came with the brush.
– Looks better suited than a paper towel and an elastic band for keeping the brush in shape .
– Looks like it would easily protect the bristles from accidental damage if knocking around a kit box.
Available in 4 sizes:
Only obvious question I have: Does it come with a box or neat solution to keep all your vested brushes together, and to keep the Brush Vest safe when not in use?
Let us know via comments, if the latest addition to the stable of My Paint Brush specialist products hits the mark and does an “Apple” and becomes the brush accessory we have always needed but never knew it.
Alternatively, there is a section on our forum dedicated to brush vest talk, please add your findings.
Please share it on Twitter, Facebook, or print it out for reference. Thanks.
