Oval shaped paint brush for interior decoration. Ideal for creative colour wash application, this brush is a mixture of light pig bristle and polyester that boasts good paint retention. Colour washing essentially involves a person standing with a brush in his/her hands hand and scribbling the paint onto the wall in random, wild sweeps. Color washing works best when all the colors show through the base and the brushed layers. To create that effect, your brushwork has to be as random as possible—bare patches and bristle marks should clearly show. The more haphazard the brushing, the more successful the effect will be.
Balance between the two top brushed layers is the sign of a good color wash. Many first-time decorative painters are too concerned about coverage and end up with an overly blended surface.
Start out as rough as possible; you’ll be able to soften things up by using a soft and dry polyester brush to feather out harsh markings while the top layer is still wet. If you’re still not satisfied, you can always go back over discrete spots with more glaze until you achieve your desired effect.

ECO PACKAGING: Testers use bio degradable corn starch infill packing pieces (these are only suited to testers and very light weight items though); on larger products we either use recycled/recyclable brown paper or we’re just starting to use pulped cardboard inserts for 2.5l and 5l tins - these are recycled and can either be recycled with household cardboard, composted or several people use them as firefighters!
