BRUSHES: I have listed the brushes I feel comfortable using but you should feel free to substitute according to your preference. Please note, large surfaces are painted with a large flat brush of your choosing. Smaller areas are painted with a size flat brush that is comfortable for you. The same holds true for any round brush used. The curved flat brushes were used for floating and I used the smaller size for smaller areas, middle size for larger areas and the large size for the largest areas. I use both Crescent brushes and domed brushes for the dry brushing and used a size that was appropriate to the area being brushed. I have listed the brushes that I used.
Leow-Cornell Curved Flat 7330, sizes 6, 10 and 12 * Discontinued, can substitute with flat or angle flat brush in sizes 6, 10, and 12.. Mesa 7830, size 8 Crescent brushes, #247, ½”, 3/8”, ¼” and 1/8” * Crescent brushes have been discontinued. The Brush Guys sell a similar product - JS Mid Liner #2 JS Mid Liner #10/0
