I seem to remember I actually got my paint brushes from Craftmaster & certainly they were Purdy!

Regards,

I have been experimenting with brush painting and have finally found the right combination of brushes, (Daler-Rowney not the cheapest but very good and a good range of sizes from lining to 1 1/2 flat).

I have used Purdy and Richards brushes. Both give good results. Don't try to push the paint out. Let the brush flow.

Help with paint brushes

Thanks to all that has replied. I appreciate your help and advice. I have, since posting my question, yesterday, read the thread from Craftmaster Paints. They also recommend Purdy brushes, " Purdy Monarch Elite " brushes.
I did take a look on Amazon, yesterday, and ordered a set of 5 brushes, recommends by Craftmasters, and now some of you.
I do still want to get a half inch brush, but they dont do one in the range from Purdy.
I will look at the other suggesting made by a couple of you that replied.

Thanks to all for your help.

Charlie
