New favorite brushes!

Post by LaLaLaura on Mon Jun 02, 2014 10:03 pm

I went on a search for the perfect round and I think I found it. It's called a Round Stroke by Loew Cornell 7040 series. They called it the "Super Round" on the site so I'm not sure why the name on the handle is different. It's extra thin tip makes great lines and the bristles are super springy. The action reminds me a lot of a gold grip but the tip is thinner. I perfectly outlined teardrops with a #4 so it's a great detail brush. I've been looking for good, all around brush that I can keep in my hand instead of switching for this and that. I took a pic so you can see how thin the line is by my hand. I'm sure a more experienced painter can get it thinner. (Yellow handle made teardrops, green made petals)

Another great find was the La Corneille Flora Round series 7430. There's ghost like hairs on the tip that's great for double loading and it's nice and round for pretty petals. I like not having to double dip my rounds to keep my white brush white and my color brush out of my white. I got a #6 and #2. The small one is great for those floating detail petals although I think I'd've been happier with something a little bigger.. I'm turning out to be one of those that does everything with a #4.

I wasn't super impressed with the #6 double filbert. Maybe I just don't get it. I'll keep playing with it.

I LOVE the Loew Cornell 1" 7100 series Stroke! It's a big one! It easily picked up 4 colors in a large Tag rainbow and I know I can get it to 5. The paint went on and on so no reloading this brush for one face. It's a one stroke brush so the chisel is nice and sharp. I wish I'd ordered 2 of the 3/4" instead of Plaid's. I was just afraid it might not work but it did brilliantly.
Anyway, I'm going to make my first attempt to post a pic. If I don't get it this post, I'll keep trying. I want to share with those who may not know about them now and in the future. Great brushes! Cheers  cheers

Nope, sorry. I choose the pic I want to upload and that's as far as I get. Any advice would be appreciated! Thanks!

@ LaLaLaura - here is what Forest Fairy was kind enough to tell me:  Click on Profile, then on Avatar.  Go down a little way on the left and click on Create Avatar.  From there, it's a simple matter to upload your photo.  Good luck!
