Lime paint brushes

These brushes (Italian: Plafone) are developed specifically for the application of lime wash and lime paint. Unlike any other brush, their large size and long soft bristles allows the brush to load up a large amount of paint with minimized dripping for a faster and cleaner application.  Made in Italy

 Traditional professional-grade lime paint brushes 

These are the traditional lime paint brushes used for centuries, made with stiff 100% high quality china bristles. 

The bristles are glued to the basin with epoxy for maximum durability and bristle retention.

The wooden handles have a comfortable soft, non-slip rubber grip for long day use. 

The clip on the handle allows you to hang the brush on the paint bucket while not in use.
