Do you have any old utility paint brushes lying around? Even those sad old brushes that are hopelessly irredeemable, 1.5 to 2.5 inch brush, or there abouts, 1 inch is too small. I seriously do not care what condition it is in. In fact, brand new is not as desirable, but I’ll certainly take it if you happen to be swimming in them. I would like to thank you in advance for your assistance, and look forward to creating with your children!, Ms Mitchell.
