How The DIY Works Team Tests & Rates The Paint Brushes
Over the years, we’ve tried and tested a variety of paint brushes from some of the best brands in the UK. Whether we are using a paint brush with emulsion, satin, acrylic or gloss paint, we certainly have plenty of experience.
As shown in the photo below, we recently put the Harris Seriously Good paint brushes to the test and they ticked all the boxes. As we were using them with emulsion, they were also easy to clean, which meant that we could reuse them for other painting projects too.
However, our testing doesn’t stop there because we’ve been busy testing the latest paint brushes from the best brands in the business.
To keep up our commitment to reviewing and testing the latest paint brushes (for this article), we are continuously putting the most rated paint brush sets to the test. As you can see in the images below, we recently put the professional Purdy Elite to the test as well as a range of other sets that vary in price.
As well as our extensive testing and experience of using multiple paint brushes, we also based our recommendations upon hours of research and a number of factors. Some of the factors that we considered included the sizes available, build quality (ferrule, handle and bristles), usability, ease of cleaning and value.
