Legend Brushes

It may seem a little nerded to discuss the tools we use but quality tools are the difference between a premium finish and the standard job. So when it comes to paint brushes most think the only difference is price and one brush is as good as others.

I have used, like most professional decorators, the UK’s top brands: Hamilton, Purdy, both pure bristle and synthetic, and we generally stay loyal to one particular brand. However once in a will a new product comes on the scene - well it came from New Zealand and it wasn’t so new to them.

It is a hand made brush called "Legend" that has fantastic balance and a unique combination of synthetic bristles that allow prolonged use with great accuracy for a sharp finish. For the last two years I have use Legend’s and would find it hard to revert to any other of the fore mention products.

I think its important for you to know how concerned I’m about quality and how it affects your projects, and brush choice is just one way I’m doing this.
