- What is a cutting in brush?“Cutting in” is the stage of painting where the edges (between 1” to 3” inwards) of a wall are painted first (so you can then roll close to the edge without worrying about bumping the adjacent surface (such as the ceiling) with the roller.
Cutting in brushes are subsequently designed to make the application of paint to these areas easier by either having a conical design (sometimes called a “sash” brush) or angled for more precise application along edges. Sash brushes are a more traditional design and take slightly more skill to use efficiently compared to an angled brush
- What are bristle brushes used for?Traditionally bristle brushes were, and are still, used for the application of oil-based paints like gloss because of how the natural bristle (hog hair) carried and laid off oily paint. It is only in the last decade that the technology in making synthetic filaments has come on sufficiently to make a satisfactorily performing synthetic brush for use in oil-based paint.
- What paint brushes are good for decking?A variety of brushes are great for decking. Ideally a stiffer bristle brush is best for the application. The Dulux Decorator Centre block brush would be a good option both for speed and finish.
- What is an edging paint brush?This is an alternative description for a cutting in brush.
