If your idea of a successful paint job is one that’s smooth, streak-free and made to last, you’re going to need a quality paintbrush to make that happen. When it comes to painting tools, the options are endless and the quality varies greatly. Purdy knows exactly why a quality brush is essential to a successful paint project, so they’re taking the guesswork out of investing in great painting tools.
Low-quality brushes aren’t made with your specific task in mind. With 11 families of brushes, Purdy offers custom tools — from those made to hold more paint like Purdy Pro Extra Glide to Chinex brushes, which are made to work with low-VOC and heavy bodied paints. This means more options when it comes to handle size and shape, brush size and material, so you can find one that’s not only designed to fit your project but provides you with a perfect painting experience and end result. And because Purdy brushes are handcrafted and made to last, you’ll be able to use them for projects to come.
Better brushes provide better paint jobs because they’re made specifically for smooth application, precision, and control. Purdy brushes are made with Alderwood handles, which absorbs hand sweat so that you can maintain a firm grasp and control of the brush. And those with chiseled bristles give them ease of opening and a smooth lay off. Purdy brushes have all of these features and more, which is why your investment guarantees a smoother application.
Since a paintbrush’s quality can differ widely across brands, prices differ too. But brushes made with low quality materials are brushes you’ll have to replace frequently and most importantly the FINISH will be compromised. If you have to replace a brush with each job or even multiple times for a single job, it adds up—no matter the bargain, and so as your reputation as a Painter. Purdy brushes like the ones we mentioned above can last years, so their long term performance and exceptional finish provides continued usage in all future high quality projects.
With Purdy, the brush and handles don’t get loose or break the way most brushes on the market do, specifically those lower-cost ones. Each is handmade by craftsmen dedicated to the art of brushmaking. When shopping, don’t be fooled by lower-quality alternatives that simply look similar at first glance. A massive amount of detail and precision goes into each brush—right down to the special two-part epoxy formula that’s tested twice daily to ensure that no bristles leave the brush during your paint job. It’s details like this that make these brushes worth the investment.
