What are your brushes made of?

Our brushes are designed to last! Our filaments are a proprietary polymer blend made of polyester. The handles are made of hardwood with stainless steel inserts and ferrule using 100% epoxy glue.

What are the differences between synthetic (white) and faux natural (tan top coat) paint brushes?

  • Zibra’s white filaments are created with a proprietary, high-performance filament blend, which is designed to create a balance of softness and stiffness in ultra smooth paint release and long-lasting durability. They can be used with all types of paints and stains.
  • Zibra’s tan top coat filaments are created with the same high performance blend as the white filaments but engineered to replicate natural hair filaments by adding texture to the filament. We chose to design a faux engineered natural filament to protect animals that these brushes are commonly made from. The tan filaments are designed for an exceptionally smooth clear coat of stain or paint, great for top coating or painting raw wood.

What kind of paint can I use with your brushes?

Our brushes leave an exceptionally smooth finish with all types of paint including latex, oil, chalk, mineral, milk, ceramic, and stains.

What are the different types of detail paint brushes available?

What are the key differences between round, triangle, fan, and square detail paint brushes?

  • Round Paintbrushes are ideal for round and cylindrical surfaces.
  • Fan Paintrbrush will hug around unique shapes and crevices for molding, routed edges, and detail work.
  • Triangle Paintbrush will provide the precision and accuracy you need for wall corners, raised panels on doors, and slanted flat surfaces.
  • For painting next to trim, electrical outlets, or door molding, the Precision Cut-In Paintbrush will provide a nice clean edge.
  • Square Paintbrushes are the perfect width to provide a smooth finish for painting windows, narrow molding, and flat edges.

Do paint brushes come in sets, and if so, what are the advantages of buying a set over individual brushes?

  • Yes–at Zibra, you can conveniently purchase the Best of Zibra Kit to handle all your home painting needs. A major advantage to buying the kit, aside from the convenience of getting all the brushes you need at once, is the cost-savings.

Can Zibra paint brushes be used for other art and craft applications besides painting?

  • Absolutely! The same paint brushes that you might use for molding or curved surfaces would be perfect for your favorite craft projects. The shape and smaller size of precision paint brushes makes them excellent candidates to handle the details of your next artistic idea.

What is the proper way to store precision paint brushes to prevent damage?

  • In this blog, you will learn how to properly store your paint brushes.

How can I extend the lifespan of my paint brushes?

  • To protect the shape and integrity of the filaments, lay them flat in a designated storage area. Choose a room with a consistent temperature that’s out of direct sunlight. This prevents the weight of the brush from warping its shape. Then, wrap or cover the filaments for additional protection.
  • For filaments that have moved out of place, use a brush comb to reorganize them. You can also wet the brush under warm water and try to move the filaments back into place.
  • Your paint brushes are an investment, both in the precision of your paint job and future projects. Without taking proper care of those brushes, you’ll be dealing with streaks, texture issues, and an uneven finish.
