A Better Epoxy Brush

5 posts in this topic

Get a smoother finish and coat more baits faster with this epoxy brush. Get a cheap set of bristle brushed (Walmart is one source). Use a pointed pair of scissors to remove 3/4 to 7/8 of the bristles. Clean with denatured alcohol or acetone and wrap with paper towel. Reuse it for months or years.

That should make the brush softer so I can see how that would help keep bubbles out of the finish. Only drawback is that it might not allow you to load as much epoxy onto your brush. May have to give this one a try though.

 

Thanks Chuck.

I don't have a problem with bubbles. It holds quite a bit, epoxy flows well. One swipe covers about one side of a 4-1/2" slim minnow. I use stencil material  to scrape most of the epoxy out of the brush before cleanup.

Thin epoxy applied to base of bristles, brush left standing bristles up, will set your bristles permanently.
