Proform Picasso – the full range
Here is a graphic providing an indepth look at the full range of Proform Picasso paint brushes. It is a highly recommended favourite for emulsioning. It has a huge capacity for holding paint, yet holds its shape, so you can paint a precise clear cut line – a very long line. American brush technology at its best.
In my experience, yes the Hardline design makes the Picasso a very very robust brush, but the life of the brush is limited by the bristles, which will wear down in a couple of months of regular trade use. Not a problem, because you get a phenomenal amount of work accomplished, but despite it construction, it is not a brush for a lifetime of use on site. Sporadic DIY users need not worry, just enjoy and clean after use!
Talking of cleaning, all paint brushes need cleaning out at some point, especially if used in water based paint. Hands up who has shaken their brush for ages, started painting with their “dry” brush, then watched a trickle of painty water run out the stock of the brush, down the handle and down your sleeve?! The Picasso’s clever design saves you from this annoyance. As long as you flick the water out the bristles, there will be no pesky dribble from the stock when you start painting, purely because water cannot get into the stock in the first place.
The whole Proform Picasso range is available in UK from My Paint Brush.
