BRUSHES

 

Variety of brushes.  A mop/wash brush of some kind is useful.

I use a Rekab 320S Size 12 and Winsor and Newton Pure Squirrel Size 3, but any kind of mop or wash brush will do.

Since brush size numbers vary across brands, giving a brush size number will not be helpful.

Bring any brushes you have, but please do not bring only small brushes.
