Most people are unaware that exceptional finishing results can be achieved with a tool as simple as a brush. However, you must match the correct brush to the finish and the task at hand. Good quality brushes are well worth their price and last indefinitely if properly maintained.





Synthetic Bristle Brushes   Use for water based stains and  topcoats. These brushes are also great for lacquer and shellac. They clean easier than natural bristle brushes. Note: The Athena Golden Taklon brushes have a stiffening size which keeps the bristles in shape during shipping. Remove this size before use by running under warm water before using with waterbased finishes. For solvent finishes the size can be removed with denatured alcohol. The Homestead Deluxe Golden Taklon has no size.

wbtaklon2 taklon_whiteHOMESTEAD DELUXE TAKLON This synthetic brush is the best brush we’ve ever used for waterbase finishes and shellac. This Taklon filament is made under extremely tight processes which produces a filament that is extremely smooth. This makes this brush one of the easiest brushes to clean that we’ve ever used. Our manufacturer uses an unfinished wood handle and a metal water-resistant ferrule. A fine chiseled edge allows precise application of finish in corners. If you’ve ever had problems brushing a waterbase or shellac finish you definitely need to try this brush!

NOTE: Bristles are gold and/or natural (white) color. The 2″ size listed has some staining/rust on the handle and ferrule from shipping. It doesn not affect performance of the brush as the bristles are fine. Discounted 50%
