With the recent series of posts on paintbrushes, I've not only been educated, I've finally got a real brush I can use to paint with.
A little while ago, I posted a great series of posts on paintbrushes done by misterjustin of Secret Weapon Miniatures. Since then, I went out a bought myself a "better" paintbrush in the respect that it has a bigger reservoir. I tried using it once, but quickly slipped back into old habits in order to keep up my pace of painting.
Along comes John from Santa Cruz Warhammer who emails me and then turns around and sends me a "real" paintbrush to use. He also sent me some killer looking dice, but that's another story... this is about paintbrushes.
Thank you John.
I'm almost afraid to use the brush, it looks so "professional."
It's a Windsor Newton Series 7 Size 000
But, what kind of person would I be if I didn't take someone else's model and do some experimenting with my new "fancy" paintbrush?
I've got just the model I can try it on to see how how it holds up compared to what everyone is telling me. I'll be posting my results this coming week as part of a new project I'll be working on.
I have to say, I'm a little hesitant to try it, but I'm going to put aside all my preconceived notions and give it a good run through to see how it holds up.
NEXT: A 5 month review of my "good" brush.
