I'm wondering what brushes you are using?

Thank you

Larry

Larry,
Nothing special. "Cheap and cheerful" in fact.
The Flat brush is starting to show it's age, and is due for replacement.
One note though, oils do better with natural bristle

Thanks Pierre.

Great stuff Pierre, would one handle the ends similar to the car door? Other than wheel splashing on the ends I'm guessing that might be the right way.

Thanks,

John

John,
Yup exactly. a fair amount of crud on the tops of the ribs
And wheel spit, easy to do and rarely done

Pierre,

I notice you use 'turpenoid' to streak the oil paints.  I can only find 'turpentine' at Lowe's and Home Depot.  Is there a difference?

Thanks,

Jeff

You don't want to use harsh hardware strore turpentine with your artist/modeling oil paints. Turpentine is intended for use by house painters, not artists and modelers. Turpenoid is a form of turpentine made especially for artists and is also less harsh and less smelly than turpentine.

You can find Turpenoid on Amazon in many different quantities: http://amzn.com/B000YQM9G8 ... for example a 236ml (8oz) bottle is only $8 with free shipping for prime members.
