    AND CHEAP PRICES! Looked around and couldn't find anything on what brushes people use so I am starting this thread. A while back my buddy Jin made a suggestion on some brushes that I should use as I was having trouble with regular store bought ones and the constant quality issues and fishtailing(though fishtails can really help with some details). So I am passing this info on to anyone that wants some good brushes for an even greater price. Register with the sites mailing list for some great coupons so you can get the normal 50% plus there codes which go up to 50% as well. Cant beat that and to top it off with normal cleaning these brushes outlast any of the ones I have bought from Micheal's or hobbyshops.

    Bendy brushes? That's new. lol Cool, I might have to pick them up to try. What do you use for the smaller details? I notice they come is "regular size" only? Thanks for the link to that thinner, I need something a little less volatile.

    I'm in this camp. I'm also still using brushes I bought when I made my first custom. I did buy some new brushes this past summer.

    The main rule to brushes is keeping them maintained well. After each use, clean em out really well. Use hot water and soap to do this, and for the most part you'll be fine.

    Thanks for sharing, Tony :thumb
