Miss Mustard Seed Brushes
Marian Parsons of Miss Mustard Seed and Shaunna West of Perfectly Imperfect have collaborated to design a beautiful, versatile paint brush. This 2" angled sash with tapered synthetic bristles helps you achieve crisp lines and a smooth finish with minimal shedding and brush strokes.
This brush is suited for all water-based paints (latex, milk paint, acrylic, chalk-type paints, waterborne enamel, etc.) and a variety of painting projects (walls, furniture, cabinetry, cutting in, etc.)
The natural wood handle is shaped to fit into the crook of your hand, between your thumb and pointer fingers, just how Marian and Shaunna prefer to hold their brushes!
Large Wax Brush
With flat bristles and a generous oval shape, this brush holds wax well and is ideal for working it into a paint finish and buffing it at the same time. The curvy wooden handle is comfortable for smaller hands.
Medium Wax/Paint Brush
This brush is a little smaller than the large wax brush and the bristles are chiseled instead of flat. This shape and size makes this brush versatile, so it can be used to apply wax, paint and/or oil.
Flat Paint/Oil Brush
This is another multi-functional brush that can be used to apply paint or oil. The natural bristles hold both products well and the flat bristles allow you to work paint into tight areas.
Miss Mustard Seed's Handmade Brush Soap
Made with natural, eco-friendly, certified sustainable, responsibly produced oils and fats that perfectly cleans and condition your paint brushes beautifully. No synthetics or detergent chemicals. No phosphates, ABS LAS, fluorescents and no artificial fragrances.
Brush Care Tips
- Never leave your brushes soaking in a jar of water or solvent for any length of time. This will cause the natural bristles to swell and bend.
- Natural bristles are prone to breakage and minor shedding. Too much pressure on your brush during paint or wax application can increase these tendencies. Expect more shedding during the first few uses, but that will taper off as you use the brushes.
- Cleaning tips: Clean with a quality brush soap to not only clean, but condition the brush. Rub the brush gently in a circular motion in the palm of your hand to remove paint, wax or oil. Rinse well and wrap your brush in paper (construction or kraft paper works best but paper towels will do) and allow to thoroughly dry before use. This will help absorb excess moisture and keep the brush in its original shape.
- If a deep cleaning soak in mineral spirits is necessary, rinse with lacquer thinner after soaking to remove the oily residue, and finally clean with soap and water. Wrap your brush in paper (construction or kraft paper works best but paper towels will do) and allow to thoroughly dry before use.
