As you know, I’ve tackled a few amazing paint projects lately! I’ve truly enjoyed challenging myself with the process. But I was lucky enough to have a fabulous little accessory to help me during the process! “the Paint Brush cover”…
I am super excited to share with you my personal experience using this product, as well as the thoughts of a professional painter.
I recently used it for the foam craft brush that I used while painting the bookshelf for my sitting room. It kept the foam clean and in place while I waited to give my piece of furniture a second coat. I know that these little brushes from Michaels are inexpensive and can be thrown out and replaced, but if you knew you could easily save it and continue using it – wouldn’t you do so? the foam around where the handle is placed keeps the brush in place, the paint was still wet the next day!
I was able to use the brush again which was pretty awesome. And because the storage container of “the Paint Brush cover” is plastic, the remnants from the paint just washed right off.
So I was anxious to hear what my friend Mike thought about “the Paint Brush cover” for tougher and larger projects – he paints both the exterior and interior of homes. Going thru paintbrushes is something he does regularly because he can’t allow them to dry out. If they do, they are thrown out and this can become expensive. He was adamant that I would owe him a new paint brush if this didn’t wok for him. He was willing to give it a try and was curious to see if it really worked!He was impressed by the way the foam that wrapped the brush handle ~ he said it was a good thing that it fit snug. He told me he’d leave it in “the Paint Brush cover” over the weekend and get back to me.
The weekend came and went and I just texted him a reminder to let me know his thoughts so I can share with all of you. This was his reply “It worked good. Still wet. I would definitely keep a couple around to use with my wet brushes my future painting projects”.
I love that you can use this for small crafty projects as well as large house projects! Highly recommend this accessory to anyone that picks up a painting brush! These retail for $4.99 each or 3 for $12.99.
