Why Cling On! brushes?

Because you want the best product for the best results, right??!!  Cling On! brushes offer superior application, resistant to shedding, and smooth flawless finishing.  Featuring premium synthetic filaments, beech wood painted handle, fully locked in epoxy cement to eliminate shedding, and a stainless steel ferrule.  Hand made in Holland, Cling On! brushes are designed for all waterborne materials. Brushes are available in round, oval, flat, block and angled styles.

What makes Cling On! brushes any different from other brushes?

-Zero Shedding

You will not lose bristles on your Cling On! brushes.  They are made in the Netherlands with the most state of the art Dupont filaments that are produced in the USA.  They will not break or come lose from the ferrule.  No picking stray bristles out of paint is a major plus!

-Self Cleaning!

Cling On! brushes are designed to be used and stored wet, this means when you are finished painting, simple return bristles to water and the paint will just fall off of the bristles.  I use a mason jar with the bristle tips suspended in water.  Try using a chip-clip attached to the handle to keep the bristles from resting on the bottom of the jar.  This method preserves shape retention and keeps your brushes free of dried on paint!  Lightly rinse in warm water before use if necessary, wring out excess water, and you are ready for painting again!  No need to scrub with soap and water or wait for your brushes to dry.

-Brush Stroke Free Finish

The smooth silky bristles of the Cling On! brushes hold plenty of paint and allow for a flawless application that is unmatched by any brush.  In turn, will use less paint because of a more uniform application.  This application can reduce or eliminate the need to sand out any coarse surfaces of paint and no need to sand out brush strokes.  Painting with the brushes slightly wet helps produce a flawless finish and prevents paint from drying on bristles while in use.

-Extreme Durability

Today so many paint brushes are treated as disposable, and a Cling On! brush is designed to last a long time!  When it’s time to replace your Cling On!, be prepared for a sad goodbye since you will have become attached over your time together.  With proper care there these gems will last for years.

-A joy to Use!

Paint is therapy!  I know this now more than ever.  In the last year I have come to realize, that to many of us, painting is our “happy place”.  Its relaxing, its creative, and for those of us that need a time out from any obstacles and worry in our lives, it provides an unmatched feeling of Zen.  I know I’m not alone because, in the last year I have had people tell me painting has helped them deal with loss, with sickness, and with the need to create and have a sense of self.  For many creative individuals, our minds are constantly running with ideas, to do lists, and more at the speed of a mile a minute.  It’s nice to take a timeout to paint, and the brush itself feels so much smoother when painting.  The smooth feeling produced when painting with a Cling On! brush cannot be described.

-Versatility from Multiple Styles and Size

You will find a brush for all projects in the Cling On! line.  The Cling On! brushes come in the following sizes and styles.

Oval Styles, ideal for all over painting and great for painting legs and spindles as well as any detailed areas.  The O40 is the bestselling Cling On! brush and the O45 is a favorite among cabinet painters.

035- Small Oval

040- Medium Oval

045- Large Oval

Round Brush Styles, ideal for all over painting and produce a similar finish to oval brushes but I find the Oval Brushes make for quicker painting but the round styles are best suited for more detailed areas.  These will make quick work of painting banisters, spindles and more.  The R14 is the perfect brush for small projects like jewelry boxes or photo frames.

R14- Small Round

R16- Medium Round

R18- Large round

R20- XL Round

Flat Styles, ideal for large surface painting and more.  Some painters just prefer a flat brush for all applications and it’s all a matter of personal style and finding what works for you.  The large is wonderful for stain and poly applications in addition to painting.  I found, when working alongside my husband staining our deck, that the Cling On! brush was wonderful for more than just paint.  The areas I applied the finish with my F50 Cling on were flawless compared to the streaky finish produced from the large natural bristle brush that the “stain experts” recommended he use.  The flat styles are also useful for cabinet painting and more flat surfaces.

F30- Small Flat

F40- Medium Flat

F50-Large Flat

The Angled Styles are ideal for all of those tricky areas.  I get the most questions about this style.  “What are those funky angled ones for?”  Once you have used them to reach that area that you couldn’t get to, then you will truly understand their value!  They are ideal for pieces like hutches or on the interior of pieces, and for painting under arms of a chair, under a horizontal spindle, and areas that you cannot fit a traditional brush.  They aren’t suitable for painting an entire project as they are smaller sizes but you will find many times that you could use one!

P16- Small Angled

P20- Medium Angled

P24-Large Angled

If I had to select a set for all furniture painters, I would recommend:

Oval Medium- O40

Flat Medium- F40

Round Med or Large- R16 or R18

Angled medium or Large- P20 or P24
