    Default Ever~Ready 69 is completed

    Got the 69 all but done (a little fine tuning to the bottom stripes required) but the knot is set and she's been for 1 test drive. Overall I'm pretty pleased.

    Nice Job. It looks like a TGN 2 band Finest.

    Not sure about the diameter or loft.

    I was going to say that the loft looks pretty short. I bet he's a face scrubbing monster.

    Nice work.

    Very cool brush. I set my 20mm finest at about 46mm. Great brush.

    Did you do the lines by hand ?

    I have a brush that I want to try and paint a thin blue line around, on a white background.

    How did you do it ? Freehand ?

    I was thinking that maybe I could put the brush handle in a really slow speed drill, then hold a permanent marker against it.

    Maybe I will try it first on a blank piece of wood.

    I did em freehand, probably why I nitpicked them to death. I don't think they were colored originally anyway so away they went. I would've used colored O rings but the grooves are too small.

    You know what would probably work, is the narrow flexible tape they use in automotive painting to mask.

    Or maybe the teflon plumber's stuff? You could tape off the top line, top edge and bottom edge...paint it, let it dry completely, any then do the same below...

    Just a thought, haven't tried it myself.

    I tried a MMOC once. I've sinced switched to straight razor shaving because it was less dangerous.
