Mack Series 1644 Long Line pinstripe brush
Buy Mack Series 1644 Long Line pinstripe brush for sale here. This brush was developed by Mack Brush working with Rick Glawson. This brush is great for pinstriping, hand painting used by Rinstripe Artist's and Sign Painters. Good for urethane paint or lettering enamel. Rick Glawson says "They are great for long thin lines!" Brushes are made of three sections - the root, where the ferrule (the wire band or thread that keeps hairs attached to the brush) is located, the belly section in the middle, and the end tip. Most artists either blunt the normally pointed tip of the brush, or slightly alter the belly. Because a water-soluble sizing is used to keep brushes stiff during shipping, they need to be cleaned right out of the package. After the sizing is rinsed out, the brush is ready to be shaped.
Made from Pure Blue Squirrel Hair:
Blue squirrel is the most readily available and comes in long lengths, as well as short lengths. It is generally used for striping brushes and lettering brushes. Brown, or Kazan, is no longer as plentiful as it was several years ago. It is generally found in the shorter lengths and used for Pinstripe Brushes, quills, and out liners. Both blue and Kazan are very soft and fine. They point as well as Kolinsky, but have very little snap, since the hair is not very resilient. Grey squirrel is the hardest to find and the most expensive. It is more durable, has more snap and makes a great quill or lettering brush.
