BT&C Round Bristle Paint Brushes are made by old-guard artisans up in the Bronx who have been in the trade for 58 years. Not only are they just a bridge and an island away from our shop, they’re in the business of building a brush the way it should be done.

We wanted a brush that is versatile and worth keeping around, and they delivered. The natural bristles are packed and shaped by hand into a steel ferrule (unfortunately stainless steel was not an option), without a hollow center - these brushes are thick all the way through. The bristles are shampooed and dried in a three-day process, to make them fine, flexible, and to improve their holding power.

What we have here is an American-made brush with premium natural bristles that can be used again and again with your preference of paint: milk paint, latex paint, oil paint, or enamel paint. These solid brushes lay it on thick and even, and wash up well for another use.

Our Round Brushes are available in three sizes, small, medium and large, in either Flat Tip or Chisel Tip, for a full range of choice between fine detail or a thick coat. The "round" ferrules aren't perfectly round and the small brush is nominally 1" x 1 1-1/8". The medium brushes are 1-1/2" x 1-3/4". The large brushes are 2" x 2 1/4". These brushes are suited for paint or thick finishes; for fine finishes see our Gramercy Finishing Brushes.

Made in the USA.

Good Brush
By: Keith (Jun, 2023)
I bought the medium w/flat tip brush to use with milk paint. I had read that a good, round thick brush like this is good for holding milk paint. This brush does just that. Holds a good amount of paint and allows for a good flow. My one complaint is the number of bristles that came out during the first use, making me stop numerous times to remove the bristle from my painted project. After the first use, I carefully washed the brush in mild soapy water and wrapped the brush in a paper towel to dry. Before using the brush the second time, I flicked the brush across my fingers to remove any other loose bristles. I still had several bristles come out in the paint again. Hopefully over time this problem will cease. Another minor thing was that the wood handle was glued into the ferrel at an angle, not straight.

Medium w/ Chisel Tip
By: James Magness (Jun, 2019)
For many years I have searched for a good brush to apply oil varnish. "Hoodamnrah", I found it. This brush lay down a finish I am proud of. Holds a great quantity and the chisel tip makes tipping off easy. Great Brush!
