I didn't need a whole lot of control, I was using it to splosh some varnish I'd been given, so I didn't need it to last long. I varnished my little things, then allowed it to dry, by the time I needed a recoat, I'd just snip off the stuck together bit, move the slider and carry on. Each brush lasted me about 4-5 coats.

Before I thought of the brush I was using my fingers, but it was sticky stuff and didn't like coming off so I washed my fingers raw!

Heh, yeah, that was a really good idea. So simple, yet so practical. I will absolutely try your brush in my watercolor painting. Interesting to try different qualities of paper or other materials. Variation of materials are of course eternal.
Thanks for sharing, I would never come up with that genious idea myself...

This is a fab idea - I'm helping at a free craft event on Saturday and if we run out of paintbrushes for the kids I'll use your tips to whip up a few spares!

Thanks very much!
