I love to paint and am continually on the lookout for brushes that will make my painting life easier and my designs more professional. Without great brushes, I know I will not have great results. I don’t like fussy painting, but I like my designs to look like I spent many hours achieving perfect detail. I use angles of all sizes not only to shade and float, but love the angled toes for sharp details and the width of the bristles to lay in basecoats.
My biggest complaint was finding an 1/8″ angle that would do the work I needed. I searched high and low, checked out brand after brand, and tested one after another. I was so frustrated with the shapes, the bristle quality, the performance; none of the brushes lived up to my expectations.
So, I decided to have a brush manufactured to my specifications. The list was simple:
- The brush had to be long enough to allow me to load enough paint to float a significant distance before reloading.
- The angle needed to be at least 45 degree to allow easy application in small areas.
- The chisel edge needed to stay sharp and not spread out.
- The bristles needed to be strong with good bounce and durability.
As a result, I am proud to announce Chris’s 1/8″ AWESOME Angle. It checks off my list of wants and has exceeded my expectations. I have been using the same brush (heavily) for over 6 months and it still looks and performs like new! I am beyond thrilled as I no longer struggle to add tiny highlights or shading in small areas. The brush makes the strokes easy to implement and the results are amazing! This versatile brush not only works well with acrylics, but also is great with watercolors or oils!
