GW brushes uses natural hair tips (am I right?) doesn't acrylic paint damage and stains natural hair, rather than synthetic tips, which would last longer and cheaper.. Is that true?
I am still using the two series 7 brushes that I started using roughly 4 years ago and they are still in very good working order. You have a much higher upfront cost but I think the quality is worth it and it does pay off in the back end.NonstickRon said:I blew some money on a few high quality (supposedly) synthetic brushes that curled within a few hours use. I've not had that problem at since I bought some Kolinsky's. Many people give high props to the Winsor & Newton "Series 7", but I went to buy one the other day and it was $17 at Southern Paint while the Winsor & Newton "Cirrus" brushes right next to them which is also Kolinsky was only $6. Go figure, i buy the Cirrus.
Sir Theobold the Lame said:the Windsor and Newton Cirrus brushes are IMO much better than their GW comparisons- they certainly seem to keep their points better.
