Question

Use a foam Brush to touch up some trim with an oil base paint?


Can I use a foam brush to touch up some interior trim with an oil base paint?
Thanks
Dennis

You can...but it will not look nearly as good as if you used a china bristle brush

Although technically you can apply oils with a foam applicator, it's hard to blend and feather the touch-ups

It's much easier to feather the touch-ups, and have them blend in, with the proper brush

Depending on how much needs touching-up, it may be better to coat whole sections, from natural break to natural break
