Fusion™ glides beautifully onto your surface, a high quality product deserves high quality tools.

Synthetic Bristle Brushes are great for a smooth finish virtually free of any brush strokes. Natural Bristle Brushes give you a hand painted look, with more brush strokes and texture. The round brush will be able to holds onto a good amount of paint allowing for a nice application.

Be sure to use our Brush Soap to keep your bristles in pristine condition!

  • SAALMEESTER BRUSHES are the Rolls Royce of Brushes. These brushes are not designed to be disposable as they are up to the task of being used for many years. This is a PREMIUM QUALITY, PROFESSIONAL LEVEL brush that will, if looked after, last a lifetime. 

    This top quality brush has a traditional beechwood handle and a coppered ferrule, (did you ever see a prettier brush?), with deeply set bristles which is ideal for painting small projects, complicated mouldings, banisters, window frames, ledges, doors and of course furniture.

    Depending on your painting techniques you can achieve a smooth flawless finish or a unique heavy textured appearance.

    APPLICATION
    When starting off with a new or dry brush submerge into water to the ferrule briefly just to dampen the bristles. Give the bristles including the string (on round & oval brushes) a squeeze so that the brush is barely damp.

    Dip your brush into the paint less than half way up the bristles, otherwise it is too much paint on the brush, and clean up will be more work.

    Should you notice any brush strokes, you have too much paint on your brush.

    You don’t want to see paint dripping off your brush, you want enough that when you go to apply the brush, it doesn’t drag across, but slides nicely across without minimal effort.

    Tip: Do not allow your brush to sit idle as the paint will dry onto the bristles.  Keep a damp washcloth handy to wrap your brush should you need to stop painting for any reason, this will prevent the paint from drying on the brush. Give your brush some extra love with Fusion’s Brush Soap for cleaning

CLEANING
Once finished painting, submerge your brush into water and rinse for a few minutes. It is incredible how much paint has been absorbed by the paintbrush so do allow it to sit in water up to the feral, you can leave it for a couple of hours if you wish. Come back to change the water and if it is not clear do that again until you no longer see paint in the water.

Once the water has run clear you know that all the paint has been removed – using the hole in the handle allow paint brush to hang for drying.

Use brush soap to clean the bristles of the brush and work it down all the way into the ferrule, and rinse thoroughly with lukewarm to cool water until no trace of paint or suds is left. The area near the ferrule is hard to clean but it’s just as important for maintaining a brush shape as the tip!

Allow the brush to dry further at normal room temperature (do not heat up the process above a radiator) or drying by using a cloth, then restore the bristle to its original shape, for example by wrapping into a foil/film

Using the brush soap in only a tiny amount for every other brush cleaning is a nice way to condition the natural bristles. If there is still paint remaining within the paintbrush and it is allowed to dry then your bristles will become quite stiff as the paint acts like a glue. That’s why it is crucial all paint is removed from your brush before you allow it to dry.
