What type of paint brushes do I need?

For latex paints, use a brush made of a polyester/nylon blend. For oil paints, use brushes made of black China bristles.

For cutting in to window frames, door frames or trim, use a 3” wall brush with a straight edge. For woodwork, use a 2” brush with a straight edge. For corners and window sashes, use a 2” tapered sash brush.

For the best results, make sure you choose the right brush.
