What’s a Chip Brush?

By FPL_John

What’s a Chip Brush? Don’t feel bad if you don’t know. I didn’t either until last week! By the way, if you do know, please don’t judge me. 🙂

A chip brush is an inexpensive brush used for harsh chemicals like stain, epoxy, glue, paint thinner and the like. It can also be used for small touch-up paint jobs.

The reason they are great is because you can get one for $1.50 instead of $15-20 for a nice quality paint brush. I really hate the feeling of needing to touch up paint or stain on a small job and having to use an expensive brush that I’ll have to throw away afterwards. I know that you can clean brushes, but they are really never the same afterwards.
