BRAND SPANKIN NEW and designed to be the most advanced brush you can buy today, tomorrow or next year.
When we introduced our new brush benchmarks two months ago, we thought it might be at least six months before new review brushes spanked the bejesus out of them. Unfortunately for us, Proform Technologies couldn’t wait that long and quickly shoved the Picasso™ in our faces.
The Picasso™ is the worlds’ first and only angular oval brush. The Wyoming based company has unleashed a paint brush so damned advanced that we’re wondering if our new benchmarks aren’t already obsolete.
What could you expect from a brush named Picasso™ that’s equipped with proprietary SRT, Advantage PBT™ filaments much more durable than standard PBT filaments and cuts and cleans perfectly? For starters, this brush has ‘copy me – I dare you’ written all over it. Further featuring “HARDLINE™” construction, an advanced, patent pending interior design that permanently marries the handle to the ferrule making it the toughest, longest lasting brush possible. With HARDLINE™ you get a NO DRIP after cleaning feature eliminating the area where paint, cleaners and water collect which often runs down the handle when a brush is upside down. This redundant epoxy system ensures permanent bonding of the filaments and additional epoxy to hold the handle securely to the ferrule providing the ultimate strength and seal where it matters most.
The fit and finish of the Picasso™ really shines when you first experience the acid dipped tipping and fine hand chiseled finish. The filaments respond immediately to slight movements and despite its size – you can put this brush in places you never thought possible with your current brush.
This brush has “I’m not your average brush written all over it” –and I’m not your average painter. The features keep coming… The raw beechwood handle is a cross-hybrid style between several common brush handles offering nice finger and thumb impression points and a more rounded-off design which is slightly less bulky to hold vs. standard brush handles. Your ring and pinky finger will fit more naturally on the oval-rounded ferrule as you guide accurate cuts. Further attention to detail is seen with the hole size for hanging the brush to dry and its ink’d on both sides! Talk about attention to detail.
Whether you’re cutting-in an 1/8” reveal or charging both sides to execute a long cut in a corner, the Picasso™ is fully competent and ready to be in any position you need it to be. Slight learning curve if you are used to cutting-in with blunt cut brushes due to a hand chiseled cut in a oval brush head, took longer than normal to get the brush loaded with paint because of its large capacity. The brush will wear faster vs more traditional style brushes due to its all poly brush head and chiseled cut design. Move over Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming is now also known for producing the worlds’ first angular oval brush!
