Cling On Paintbrush Review

Updated Apr 22, 2024 | Posted Mar 21, 2021 | Product Reviews, Tools | 0 comments

Oooh new paintbrush alert!! I have been using Cling On brushes for a while now, so I thought I’d deliver an honest review.

My name is Simon Young, and I’ve been a Professional Painter and Decorator in Scotland for many years. I have an obsession with paintbrushes!! I’m a fanatic! I use paintbrushes from all over the world, and I’m often the first to use a brush and post about it, which leads to merchants taking note, and then stocking said paintbrush.

Cling On Paintbrushes are handmade in Holland (which makes a refreshing change from “mass produced in China”). The bristles are made by a company called DuPont.

The brushes are designed by a chap called Frank Michielsen, who has around 35 years in the industry. Frank has control over everything, which means the brushes are made solely on his specifications.

The synthetic bristles on the Cling On Paintbrush are coated with something which allows them to be stored in water in-between use. This coating stops the paint from sticking to the brush, so it literally runs off when you go to use it again.


My Cling On Paintbrush Review


I’ve been using these today. Well, it’s not Staalmeester, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing. Cling On is a very soft brush. It produces extraordinarily little “sparking” and I find it lays of nice.

The downside of Cling On paintbrushes very soft is if you prefer a stiff  brush you won’t get on with it. However, they do cut a nice, straight line and they hold a good amount of paint. It supposedly has a coating to aid in washing out, can’t say I found it any easier.

The control you have over this brush is great considering it is so soft. You can manipulate even the loosest paint with ease. I’ll definitely keep a pack of these brushes in the van moving forward. I think they’ll come into their own when using water-based paints on windows or door frames.
