    A follow up clip on proper cleaning of brushes would be helpful as good brushes are expensive and it hurts to throw them away.

    How about the relative merits of Foam brush versus Bristle brushes.

      Dear Jim,

      Thank you for your patience. In response to your question-

      I use foam brushes for quick jobs with a lower quality bar. High quality bristle brushes provide higher quality finish in most if not all scenarios. These are the brushes that I use for most scenarios:

    I would like to add a brush to your list. TAKLON. Not your Home Depot brush. Got mine from The finish is like it was sprayed on. No brush marks. I would not want to try to paint the house with it, but I did do a door frame. George, maybe you would want to review some of homested’s products.

    How about a foam roller? It always gives me a smooth coat. Just put in a ziplock bag to keep it moist between coats
