I made my first brush last week and finished it with oil, poly, and wax. Decided to try the CA glue finish with the brush I finished today. I agree, the feel is somewhat "plasticy" in comparison to the other, particularly just an oil and wax finish, but I suspect this brush will be far more water resistant. Open to criticism, of course. Really enjoying this new avenue in my wood turning hobby.
This brush is Osage Orange, one of my favorites.
Compared to the brush I made last week with Argentine Lignum Vitae: oil, poly, and wax with matte finish.
Will post some lather and post-bloom images later this week.
