Tips For Choosing a Paint Brush

What size do I use? There is no one-size-fits-all brush. Include a few different sizes in your painting tool kit. A wide 4" brush is great for projects like decking or siding. A thin 2½" brush provides more control for cutting-in or painting details.Wooster Paint Brushes

Flat or Angled?. Flat brushes are good for broad, flat surfaces. An angled shape helps you get crisp lines on edges and detailed surfaces like trim and molding.

Premium or Bargain? The more expensive the brush, the more bristles and the better they stay in place instead of "shedding." The tip on a high-quality brush is shaped very precisely to give a more uniform finish.

Natural or Synthetic? Use only natural-bristle brushes for oil-based paint and solvent-thinned finishes. Latex or water-based paints won't pick up or release well from a natural brush because it absorbs into the bristles. Use synthetic bristles for latex paint and water-based finishes. Fibers are nylon, polyester, or a blend.
