The Fox Brush Developed & used by Traditional Painters

The Fox Brush

The New Fox Brush was developed by Traditional Painters. The British made brush is a blend of fine poly and nylon filaments with a full chiseled taper cut and some of the finest tipping ever witnessed on a synthetic brush. I had the opportunity to spend a lot of time with the 2.5″ Fox brush and I can say with certainty the brush is not only capable of laying down nice solid cuts, but it can do it in record breaking time, accurately. The Fox blew away our previous benchmarks recorded with the Picasso on long straight runs.

How to cut-in sharp paint lines with the Picasso brush

In this video I talk briefly about how to cut-in sharp paint lines using single pass cuts when cutting-in wall paint against trim without masking tape on smooth walls. Pay close attention to the quick ‘dry runs’ in the video. Notice how sharp the filaments glide along the casing tight and effortlessly. The focus of the video is on the difference between the rigid Picasso tip design vs. traditional flagged-style tipping which is often soft and weak at the tip in relation to cutting-in freehand vs. against masking tape.

Flagging basically means taking a single brush filament and splitting the end in two.
