Choosing the right tools

Which brush should I use?

Brushes are often used for the finer details of emulsion application; cutting into corners and around light switches for example. Their most common use is on wood and metal detailing, making them ideal for glosses, satins and eggshell.

As a general rule, natural bristle or natural/synthetic mix brushes are best for solvent-based paints, whereas synthetic bristle brushes are better for water-based products.

It's worth bearing in mind that lower quality brushes are more likely to lose their bristles.
