Recently I went looking for a paint brush to use on a craft project I was working on. I don't know much about paint brushes so I just chose one in my price range that looked like it would do the job I needed to do. I chose the Loew Cornell Taklon shader brush.
This brush is about 7.5 inches long and has a flat straight edged head which was perfect for painting the wide stripes I wanted to paint. It also held plenty of paint so I was able to get great one stroke coverage. It blended smooth and rinsed clean between colors.
The diameter of this brush was also perfect and I did not feel like I was gripping a toothpick as I was painting. This is important if you tend to have shaky hands are achy finger joints like I sometimes have. The price of this brush was good too at just under $3.00.
This brush is meant for artists that paint on canvas but it was perfect for the small craft job I was using it for, painting wide stripes on a wooden picture frame. It did a great job at a great price.
I was very happy with this brush and will be buying another one the next time I am at the craft store. I highly recommend it. I bought mine at the local Michael's craft store.
