NEW 1 AND 2 INCH LANDSCAPE BRUSHES
Over the last few years, I have been designing and manufacturing artist tools, equipment, mediums and other supplies for the wet on wet painting technique. Over the last few years, I have always looked at how I can make my supplies the best! that means I am always putting my products to the test to make them better. When I started designing and manufacturing supplies It was for myself and not to sell. I was tired of the supplies on the market and how the price would go up and the quality would go down! I started working with a company in 2009 and over the years I tried my hardest to make the product and the company the best. In 2014 after 5 years. I had enough! No longer was I going to work for a company that didn't respect the customer and the work I was doing to make them better! After a few months of leaving, I started designing supplies for myself because the products that were available were just not working! First I designed my mediums, after several formulas, I hit the nail on the head when I discovered the secret to what makes mediums work! After using the mediums and using them in my workshops, my students wanted the same mediums I was using so I started selling local and then I decided to bring this medium to the worldwide market almost 1 year later. That medium was Amazing White and is still the same formula from 2014 when I mixed up the first jar in my studio. The success of that medium brought many other great mediums that artist love today! The same year of 2014 I started looking into manufacturing my own brush line and working with many manufacturers designing many models of brushes. I went through over 20 different styles of each brush that is in my line today! In today's blog, I want to talk about my 1 and 2-inch landscape brushes. When I first started to work on my large brushes I was working with many manufacturers and these manufacturers never produced a large brush of these sizes. The thickness, length, taper and overall size was a challenge because they only produced smaller artist brushes. Most of our competitors sell hardware brushes and basic stock brushes that were painted or stained and custom stamped with their name and or logo. The problem with this is the taper and balance of the brushes are made to paint flat walls, and not to create textures and other effects we need in our paintings. Also, many of the large brushes today are mixed with synthetic fibers to cut cost. So, if the companies are cutting cost why are they raising the price? easy! most art companies today are powdered by marketers! not artist! and this is a big problem! After 2 years of testing many brushes, I finally got the perfect set! Yes, 2 years!!! After a year of my brushes being on the market, I wanted to jump back into the designing of my brushes. Taking a closer look at how I can possibly make my brushes better! I tested each one and became deeper in love with my brushes. (Yes, an artist can love their tools! I know... weird but we're supposed to be!) Do I need to clear this up still? I didn't take my brushes out to a movie or dinner! Okay now, this is getting too weird! lol!!! Okay, let's get serious now! A few months ago my manufacture called me and said they are looking into a new formula of glue and needed help with the new machine that scans the bristles, fans the bristles and then air fluffs them to remove any extra loose bristles! So we tested this new formula of glue and new machine! The brushes that were created blew me away! Bristles came out a little softer, stronger and the shedding was very little! Now keep in mind this a 100% natural bristle brush with NO synthetic fibers to cut cost or shedding! After the machine and new glue formulation was perfect and dialed in... we did a small run of brushes for me to test in my studio and I was just amazed at how perfect these brushes are! Perfect feel not too soft or firm and the shedding was very little! So with that being said..... I have replaced my 1 and 2-inch landscape brushes with a new and improved version!! If you love the old ones or didn't care for them, I know you will really love the new ones! My old landscape brushes were fantastic but the new ones are just beyond perfect!
