The creation of a quality paintbrush involves skills perfected over centuries. Although some of the processes have become more automated over time. Still many aspects of a brush are created by hand. Brush makers hand ‘cup’ the hair to shape. Each strand falls into place, thus giving the brush its fine tapered point or a clean, straight edge.
Brush sizes vary by manufacturer and may be labeled based on the width of the hair, such as a ¼” angle or a general size, such as a #6 round. Using an appropriately sized brush head will save painting time and premature wear. Use of smaller size brushes, below size 4, are usually for detail work, medium sizes, 4 to 6, are for small areas, and large size brushes, above size 6, are for broad spaces.
