I also got a very nice set of new brushes for Christmas and they really hold paint well.
Apparently minor things like this can really make a difference. My choice of brushes is all too often determined by what happens to be on sale when I need some. Do your new brushes carry a recognisable brand you could tell us about?


I have plenty of the "what's on sale" brushes too, and had been using them most of the time. Every once in a while, I got a "better" brush, but was always told the Kolinsky sable brushes were the best. Now, I have to say, they are the best I've used. Here's the one I used to do most of the painting on this group of figures.

Winsor & Newton Series 7, Size 0

A great point, and I like said before, it really held paint well.

I've also started using this soap to clean my brushes. I should probably clean them more than I do, but right now I clean the ones I use the most about once or twice a month.

I had to go back twice to make sure I'd read the scale correctly! Awesome work!

Thanks, Iggie!

Thanks for the info. I should be able to find the brushes on this side of the pond, but the cleaning material will most likely take a spot of research and an alternative supplier ;-)
