Yesterday i bought some new brushess, flat ones from acryl. It made me wonder if i could replace my hog and sable brushess. And indeed i think i can. Now i take the step to paint only with 3 flat brushess ( # 20, 18 and 16) and one sable brush and a palette knife. Today i only used, 2 (# 20 and the sable one) maybe i also could lose those other two, ........... who knows.
