A successful paint job requires two things: good prep and good tools. Wooster’s latest paint brushes meet and exceed both expectations.

“Good tools” doesn’t just refer to brushes and rollers that last a long time. Your painting tools need to make it easy for you to do your best work. And, ideally, they need to help prevent common user errors.

That’s why this Wooster Shortcut Hook and Hold Sash Brush might be one of my new favorites.

The Convenience of Shortcut Brushes

“Shortcut” brushes — which have been around for a while — make working in tight spaces much easier. The Shortcut Hook and Hold Sash Brush’s short handle is ergonomic and flexible, which makes this one even more convenient for angled work.

The soft elastomeric handle gives you extra comfort and control, and the full-size head means these small brushes still deliver smooth, fast coverage.

But Wooster’s paint brushes add another advantage.

The little integrated plastic swivel-hook is a simple addition that leaves a big impression. It’s perfect for hanging the brush on the side of a paint can or bucket.

That means you can spend less time looking for a safe place to park your brush — which, for many people, ends up being in an open can or paint tray, where it inevitably falls in, ruining the brush — and less time cleaning up messes!
