At the time of writing this review, the Two Fussy Blokes Glider Aqua Pro Paintbrushes are new to the UK. They are available online by clicking here in several sizes, including 1”, 1.5”, 2” and 2.5”. These brushes are very soft and have been developed specifically for use with water-based paints.
My Two Fussy Blokes Paintbrush Review
Two Fussy Blokes Rollers have been in the UK for a few years now, and they’ve become a little bit of a sensation amongst Professional Decorators. This is probably down to the overall finish they provide (no shedding and very little orange peel). The rollers also came along at a time when a lot of Decorators where transitioning from oil-based paints to water-based.
So, when The Two Fussy Blokes announced they were launching a range of paintbrushes, people took notice.
The brush itself is light with a thin stock and a sleek design. The bristles are soft and long, which can make it quite difficult for cutting in with gloopy materials like oil-based paint or some adhesion primers.
However, that isn’t what these brushes were designed for. They were designed to manipulate loose material like water-based satinwood, which can be a nightmare when trying to avoid brush marks.
They work well too. I guess they’re somewhere between a Purdy Monarch Elite XL and a laying off brush. If brushing skirting boards and doorframes, you’d probably carry a sash brush for the cutting in, and a Two Fussy Blokes Paintbrush to distribute paint on the larger flat areas.
I like these paintbrushes. The distribution of paint is even, and you do indeed achieve a great finish. You can use them to lay-off after rolling, or for applying the paint. They’re great for painting doors, radiators, skirting board, or any other internal trim.
The Two Fussy Blokes Glider Aqua Pro brush is a specialist. You couldn’t use it to paint a full room. It’s used for applying a specific type of product and achieving the best possible finish. If you like your water-based trim paint, then you’re going to love it.
