Hi everyone! On a whim, i bought a hake brush for use with shellac finishing after hearing Paul mention it, and i just had to come here and post about it.
If you use shellac, and you don’t have a hake brush, you are missing out! I had no idea what a great thing this is.
Evidently they are usually used for watercolor paints. They come in lots of sizes. The brisles are very very soft. It just does an amazing job.10 June 2018 at 12:38 am #548442EdParticipant
@GREGM which one did you buy? I’ve tried them and liked how the shellac went on, but the ones I’ve tried shed too many bristles. It would be wonderful but for that.10 June 2018 at 2:39 am #548443
I got this one from amazon. I haven’t had issues with shedding, but this is the only one ive ever had. I could have been lucky?

The Pro Art brush is the one I have. I’ll give the other one a try if its the one you think is working for you.
