You have not heard of ICI paints? Interesting. In my area, the only Wooster brushes I have seen are $7.00 or $8.00 brushes. I think the ICI top of line brush runs $22.00. I don't usually buy a $7.00 brush or $3.00 roller cover, unless it is a throw away oil primer situation.

My first paid paint job was in 1968 or 1969. I've been around a while.

A couple questions (edging & trim painting)


Kevin. Looked at the corporate website but could not find any brushes. The only paint brand I recognized is Glidden which I would not touch any quicker than I would other crap like Behr. That is not fair though I know. For all I know, the other brands are fine. If I were to judge Sherwin Williams by it is crap Dutch Boy brand I would never touch any of their stuff either.

I have never encountered the paints, other than Glidden, anywhere I have worked in the country. No way I can pass judgment.

If you think the brushes are that good I might try one. Clearly you are using something other than those on the Dulux link I chased down. Post a link?

A couple questions (edging & trim painting)


I have heard of and used ICI products( Devoe paints) and liked then, just never heard of the brushes and as sdester said the ones that come up on a search look kind of crappy, maybe you can provide a link to the good ones? By the way good wooster brushe is about $15.

Yup. Or if you are willing to kiss a painter goodnight, he/she might be able to score one for you for a bit less with his/her discount.

Retail, Purdy, both oil and latex, 2.5 angled sash brushes go for about $15-20 too. I use Wooster and Purdy interchangeably.

This Wooster brush looks like my ICI brush. Maybe Wooster makes them for ICI? I'll have to try one out.. Hmmm! My ICI brush has purple nylon and is definitely on the firm side. Maybe I have been using a Wooster all these years and not realized it.
