The Perfect Wax Brush is sponsored by The Purple Painted Lady. It is great length- about 7.25" long from end to end. The smooth handle - which is finish with a lacquer coating is about 4" and from the nickle ferule to the bristles is about 3.25" long.
The smooth lacquered handle, with the perfect crevice fits into your hand perfectly. The nickle ferule is secured with adhesive, and is also tacked in place. The bristles are the finest, high grade china bristles.
Please NOTE that all brushes go through a conditioning process - (that means they lose hairs when you first start using them, and then a few each use) This is most typical during the first few uses because any hairs that did not quite get all the way secured during the manufacturing will come lose and fall off. We recommend "conditioning" your wax brush. You can do this a couple of ways. First, just take your hands and with your thumb, slide it across the bristles and and make it fan open - like you would with a deck of cards when shuffling. Basically- we are trying to help those lose bristles fall out sooner versus later. Also, you can follow our instructions and clean your brush, even before your first use, to remove any loose bristles. You should NEVER soak your brush when cleaning!!! Make sure to let your brush thoroughly dry before using. This will sometimes take waiting overnight.
Wax is mean to be applied with a gentle hand and light pressure....if you are hurting your shoulder while waxing, you're probably ruining your brush, too! The weight of this brush is very comfortable too...in fact, some people might even paint with this brush...but personally, we love Annie's small DOME top brush or her 2" Flat Brush. (those our are favorites!) Heck, they are such a great value, you might as well purchase 2 - one for Clear Wax, and one for Dark and Black Wax!
