We always emphasize that prep is one of the most important parts of the painting process. Part of prepping to paint is also choosing the best products for your projects. So when you asked us for a premium quality, professional level brush, we listened and brought you the BEST paint brushes on the market – Staalmeester brushes.
Why are Staalmeester brushes the best?
Staalmeester brushes are not your average brush. These are lifetime brushes. So as long as you take care of them, you won’t need to constantly buy a new brush for every project that you undertake. We’ve said it before, the Staalmeester is the Rolls Royce of Brushes. A unique synthetic / natural bristle blend that has a short natural china bristle, blended with a longer, silky synthetic bristle. The natural bristle ensures better paint absorption and the synthetic bristle component allows for a smooth, even application having minimal to no brush strokes.
