The Cling On! Flat F40 is wonderful for stain and top coat applications in addition to painting. Very useful for cabinet painting! The smooth silky bristles hold plenty of paint and allow for a flawless, stroke free application.
You will not lose bristles on your Cling On brushes. They are made in the Netherlands with the most state of the art Dupont filaments that are produced in the USA. The bristles will not break or come lose from the ferrule. No picking stray bristles out of paint is a major plus!
Cling on Brushes are designed to be used and stored wet, this means when you are finished painting, simply return bristles to water and the paint will just fall off of the bristles. I use a mason jar with the bristle tips suspended in water. Try using a chip-clip attached to the handle to keep the bristles from resting on the bottom of the jar. This method preserves shape retention and keeps your brushes free of dried on paint! Lightly rinse in warm water before use if necessary, wring out excess water, and you are ready for painting again! No need to scrub with soap and water or wait for your brushes to dry.
Brush Stroke Free Finish
The smooth silky bristles of the Cling Ons hold plenty of paint and allow for a flawless application that is unmatched by any brush. In turn, will use less paint because of a more uniform application. This application can reduce or eliminate the need to sand out any coarse surfaces of paint and no need to sand out brush strokes. Painting with the brushes slightly wet helps produce a flawless finish and prevents paint from drying on bristles while in use.

CARE AND USAGE TIPS FOR YOUR CLING ON BRUSH:
-Always wet your Cling On Brush before using, this allows the filaments to to absorb the water, not your paint and allows for much easier flow and easier cleaning. Keep your brush wet! This takes some getting used to, but, if you can keep a bucket of water next to you when you paint and re wet your brush from time to time. Dab off excess on a paper towel to get the excess water off and continue to paint.
-DO NOT REMOVE THE STRINGS, these will help keep your brushes in tip top shape
-DO NOT wrap your brush in plastic wrap or plastic bag
-To clean, you can put your brush in a jar of water, not up past the ferrule (metal part) try to not let it sit on the bottom of the container. Let it rest like this between coats and when you go to use again just take excess water off and paint. To clean, just use water and if you want to keep your brush in tip top shape you can use dawn soap or a good quality brush soap.
