I got this brush as part of a grab bag and really liked the color so I started cleaning it up.
Disaster. Apparently the brush was hand painted and the blue color began running as I tried to get the decal off.
Also, that dark line nearer to the base seems to have been drawn with a black permanent marker. The brush is now all white with some spots of wood showing through near the top.
The metal ring is also gone.
So, I am planning on sanding it down to the wood and try and repaint it the same pretty blue color.
What kind of paint would I use and would I need some sealant, etc. ?
