Brush Types

When undertaking interior painting projects in Sydney, rollers are typically used for broad surfaces, while brushes are essential for precision work, especially in corners and detailed areas. The brush type significantly influences the final appearance of the paint job.

Key Factors in Brush Selection

Bristle Thickness

The thickness of the brush bristles plays a pivotal role in the outcome of the paintwork. Brushes with thin bristles deliver a smoother finish, but they might not maintain straightness if they’re too fine. Therefore, brushes with tapered bristles, which thin out towards the end, are ideal, combining rigidity with a smooth application.

Synthetic vs. Natural Bristles

Synthetic bristles, made from materials like polyester or nylon, are durable and versatile. They are particularly suited for water-based paints as they don’t swell when wet. On the other hand, natural bristles are the go-to choice for oil-based paints and varnishes, unaffected by the oils and offering an exceptionally smooth finish.

Brush Shapes

  • Flat Brushes: Characterized by their rectangular bristle arrangement, these are the standard choice for most painting tasks.
  • Tapered Brushes: Featuring longer bristles in the centre that gradually taper off, these brushes offer enhanced control, favoured by many professional painters.
  • Angled Brushes: With bristles sloping from one side to the other, these are excellent for painting edges, a common requirement in interior painting.
