Thanks Allen, great tute.
I got to see Allen's samples last weekend at a live demo he did. I was amazed by how great the simple, inexpensive version looked. It looked good wet after being mixed, and even better dried on the board.
Thanks Allen, great tute.
Now I see why there are no chip brushes to be had anywhere in Texas. I'm sitting at home still clapping when you whip out and present the various bottles.
I should've had a disclaimer...."No Brushes were harmed during the making of this film"
Here is where I get mine, best price in town...
I don't know what button made this funny writing but, I just watched a bunch of the video you have and they are great. I especially love the one with the human pelt and getting busted by the wife, doing weird things on the fence in the driveway. Totally precious. I took the puppies out and was laughing out in the court yard like an idiot over that. Also sharing weirdness from the videos.
Thanks for the link to Harbor Freight. It might be worth me traveling and stocking up instead of racking up my bill at the paint company!
I tend to clean even cheap brushes over and over and then go complain at the paint store that their paint screwed up a brush I have had since high school that has great sentimental value. Sometimes they hand me one. I also threaten to back charge employees for scrubbing a quarter inch off of the bristles from doing hundreds of feet of work.
I need to get a t shirt made that says "I kill brushes". I used to save them, now i dont. If I use a brush I cleaned and had used for latex, then it would keep a batch of silicone from kicking. real bad chance of cross contamination and silicone is to expensive to risk it. Also every time you use them for silicone or fiberglass they are doomed anyway. For a long time i kept the wooden handles hoping I could find a use for them...I gave up.
I can see the killing. We do a lot of acrylics and there are brushes that lives in a bucket of water with it's roller friend like fish. After they get rinsed they go in the fish tank rather than allow them to dry out even the slightest. The epoxies I just pour out and use the same drill over and over, paint stirrers that are free or popsicle sticks (something from my childhood). The clear coats also have a gallon can and the brushes are under clear coat for many jobs. Actually thousands of square feet. The artist brushes I have used over and over for at leat 20 years. Same air brushes for about that long.
I must say, you have rekindled the research scientist in me. Monday will be what kind of sand would you like in or on your clear coat day for a customer. Choose and chose well my customer. I already know what you need but apparently you wish to be experimented on. Fine. Smell the clear coat. Get it on your fingers and know I have been there for the rest of the day. No clean up thinner on a rag for you mister picky.
Shame the fuller brush man doesn't come knocking while you have your "I kill brushes" T-shirt on. Maybe there is a brush convention you could wander around at the entrance? Doing the thing with the eyes.
Maybe the handles painted a dark color with a piece of plastic painted silver could look like you had gotten 80 stab wounds with the knives all there. Never mess with a Ginsu Salesman. Get 40 stab wounds, get the second 40 stab wounds for FREE!
