I used to use a 20-brush Brushmate vapour box to keep all my oil paint brushes in tip top condition. Over time though I have migrated over to the Trade 4 which are more useful for kitchen painting, especially.
Every painter and his dog had one at one time or another, but I have heard less about them recently. Is that because they are such old news, it is standard kit, whats left to talk about, or are they less used especially since the 2010 changes in oil paint formulations?
(I have myself experienced the occasional “curly tip syndrome” with 1.5" Wooster Alphas. Not every brush does it, so not sure what thats all about!)
And on a forum or two I have seen references still to keeping oil brushes in water because of “issues” with Brushmates.
I think the Trade 4 is a cracking little storage box for DIY who are using oil eggshell and Coverstain primer on their furniture and kitchens, just wondering if that is still best advice?
These are the Brushmate products I am talking about.
