    I must have missed something in the pitch – why are they double ended?!

  • PsykoTech

    From their Kickstarter page:

    Our Double Headed Brushes allow you to
    have two different paints on both
    ends! Also good for Blending.

    Step 1: think of random product
    Step 2: think of spurious problem product solves
    Step 3: Profit!!

  • GamesNGears

    The uniquely designed handle grip enables high volume, fatigue-free painting
    Longer furrel for more precision painting and control
    Sable Kolinsky Hair for the best quality results in your miniature painting.

    This list is not exhaustive!!

    We will be at Templecon and have a seminar and show you our brushes alongside other hobby brushes (well known). We think these are the future. Please check out the entire KS page. Also we are the first thank to our backers to develop the 3LX Pro Studio Brush Kolinsky Sable Hair.

    Winsor & Newton Series 7. No problem here. And my Golden Demon agrees with me.

      I know a couple of people with multiple golden deamons who used regular old gw brushes.

  • GamesNGears

    Good!

  • GamesNGears

    This will hopefully also give others opportunity to experience Great quality Kolinsky sable hair at a great value for money 🙂

      I was intrigued by the double end, I have to admit. But I’d probably just end up with paint in my eye. LOL.

      Best of luck!

  • GamesNGears

    lol =) Thanks for the support.

    You won’t have paint in your eye =P.

    Best,

    Personally, I think it is a great idea and the price can’t be beat. I will be jumping in on this one.

    I have a hard time seeing the benefits of the unique features of your brushes…

    I for one store my brushes upwards in a cup, so I can see them all at a glance and am able to immediately pick the one I need. Not mentioning that I often use the butt of my brush to pick paint from the pot, or mix them on the palette to save the bristles. So this design would require me to add more stuff to an already clutter-prone painting area.

    Everybody I’ve see paint holds their brush as close to the bristles as possible, meaning the size of the handle itself is just about irrelevant. In particular I use both W&N7 and Raphael 8404, and I don’t find the much thicker W&N7 particularly more comfortable. Prettier maybe, but that’s about it… Also that W&N7 is probably as much a “normal standard industry hobby brush” as the one you chose to picture.

    Obviously other people have different opinions on the matter (as evidenced by how well your KS is doing ^^), but I was wondering if you considered these thoughts.
