The number one concern for every painter when choosing a paintbrush is how well it does the job. Painters can be fiercely loyal to brands of brushes such as Purdy because they are known and produce dependable results.
As a professional painter for over 20 years, John Geigle had exactly the same concern when he set out to make a new paintbrush that solves a fundamental flaw of even the best brushes: how they're cleaned.
The EZ Clean Paint Brush flushes the brush clean from the inside out, forcing paint away from the hard-to-reach heel of the brush by running water through its hollow handle. The cap at the end of the handle unscrews to connect the brush with a standard garden hose. Simply turning the water on gently, massage the bristles and the brush will be completely clean in under a minute.
But John knew the genius of his innovation would mean nothing if the brush wasn't up to snuff.
John chose the best synthetic bristles on the market for the EZ Clean Paint Brush. The ends are tapered rather than frayed, as is in many low quality brushes, to give a smooth finish to the paint. Detailed attention was paid to securing the bristles in the heel of the brush because they needed to withstand the flow of water during a lifetime of cleaning.
Even though the heel has holes to allow water to flow, the bristles are tightly packed. The EZ Clean Paint Brush stores a healthy amount of paint and releases it evenly during strokes for an easy, professional job.
To accommodate the water flow, the handle had to be shaped differently than a conventional paintbrush. John saw this as an opportunity to improve on the thin wood handles used for most paintbrushes. The round handle, made from recyclable ABS plastic, is something that many painters find more comfortable once they open their minds to something new.
But John didn't just want to make a brush that was as good as anything on the market. He made a brush that paints as well as anything on the market, cleans faster and lasts longer. The best painter takes about five minutes to clean a brush, but still some paint is left in the center bristles and heel. Over time, paint accumulates, making the brush useless for painting. The EZ Clean Paint Brush cleans in under a minute, and leaves no paint to accumulate and destroy its usefulness.
EZ Clean Paint Brushes come in five sizes from 2" to 4" with either straight or angle shapes for a total of 10 different brushes.
