series 1645-Rick Glawson Sword Pinstriping Brush
series 1645-Rick Glawson Sword Pinstriping Brush by Mack Brush was designed by Rick a.k.a."Daddy Finegold" Glawson. This brush is great for pinstriping, hand painting used by pinstripers and sign painters. Designed for water-based paints that are more dense than lettering enamel, but also good for urethane paint or lettering enamel. Rick Glawson says "They are great for long thin lines!" Rick was known for his work with gold leaf and really designed this for Reverse Glass Gilding when backing up gilded gold leaf on glass. Rick's design on the series 1645-Rick Glawson Sword Pinstriping Brush, has a longer belly than most pinstriping brushes, which are designed to really pull a long continuous line. The difference between the 1644 and the 1645 is the mix of hair in this pinstriping brush. The series 1645-Rick Glawson Sword Pinstriping Brush is made of Squirrel and brown Taklon available in size 0 hair length of 2-1/4", overall pinstriping brush measures 5-1/2" long.

Brush Tips by Ron Percell, When using these brushes in Oil or Urethane, I always use refined Lard Oil as a brush preservative to get the most life out of my Brushes. I ran across a old sign kit of mine that had been stored for 15 years and the refined Lard oil was still fresh. Before I used some of those vegtable based products and they would dry and crystalize in 3-6 month, it took some serious soaking to get the stuff out of the brushes. Over the years of making professional chemicals for the sign painting industry I've learned that those few waterbased (plant based) oils are natural Varnishes, now tell me, would you leave varnish in your brushes, I don't think so. Avoid automotive oils, they have detergents which eat at the hairs. In a pinch, mineral oil will for a short time but isnt thick enough, so stick with refined Lard Oil like the Old Timers did...
