DC Flatliner Pinstriping Brush series 1310
DC Flatliner Pinstriping Brush series 1310 has a unique squirrel hair comes from China and it is softer than the traditional Siverian squirrel hair. Its the same hair that Mack Brush uses in their #10 Origianl Mack Striping brush which is a "work horse" that was designed for long lines. The DC Flatliner Pinstriping Brush series 1310 is a very "fast" brush and lays out Long lines. Available in size 00 hair out 1-5/8", size 0 hair out 1-3/4", and size 1 hair out 1-7/8".
I see the DC Flatliner Pinstriping Brush series 1310 more of a medium size pinstriping brush (in hair) and good for fine-medium size lines 3'-4' long depending on the load of paint. The Mack brush 1010 has a longer body of hair before the belly of the pinstriping brush, making it posible to cary a larger load for longer lines if you need. Although I think the DC Flatliner Pinstriping Brush series 1310 is one of the brushes that will perform like a traditional Sword pinstriping brush, while offering those the feel of a Dagger pinstriping brush.
Brush Tips by Ron Percell, When using these brushes in Oil or Urethane, I always use refined Lard Oil as a brush preservative to get the most life out of my Brushes. I ran across a old sign kit of mine that had been stored for 15 years and the refined Lard oil was still fresh. Before I used some of those vegtable based products and they would dry and crystalize in 3-6 month, it took some serious soaking to get the stuff out of the brushes. Over the years of making professional chemicals for the sign painting industry I've learned that those few waterbased (plant based) oils are natural Varnishes, now tell me, would you leave varnish in your brushes, I don't think so. Avoid automotive oils, they have detergents which eat at the hairs. In a pinch, mineral oil will for a short time but isnt thick enough, so stick with refined Lard Oil like the Old Timers did...
