A Tale of Two Brushes
« on: September 13, 2009, 07:57:01 AM »
Well, I pulled out my terrain making stuff several days ago after a five year absence from terrain making. I set about making a dice rolling box for my wife (she's a wild roller... 'nuff said). I'm particular about my paint brushes. I've purchases expensive brushes that were terrible, cheap brushes that were great and everything in between. But when I find a brush I like I tend to use it exclusively. But, it can be an arduous task to find that "perfect" brush. I had several put away but in the course of the five years they had been ruined. I'm sure everyone knows about a brush being put up wrong and it bends the brush into an unusable position. That happened to my favorite brush. Now, I have the task of finding a new favorite brush out o fthe several dozen brushes I have...

On a side note... I got bi-focals earlier this year and it was a truly unique experience trying to paint through the bi-focals and I wasn't even painting detail; almost like learing to paint anew.

I feel  your pain. I recently re-opened my paint box after a couple of years 'off', since my son has started. I found the same thing... lots of ruined brushes. AAARRGH! Oh well, another excuse to spend money on our hobby.

Cheers!
