Semogue 1305 Paint Chipping

Discussion in 'Brush Making and Restorations' started by Manticorps, Dec 28, 2013.

    I like mine too much not to use it. If the pain chips I'm sure I'll figure something out. I'll put strips of duct tape if i have to.
  1. Mine chipped on the base when I dropped it. After reading this, I took to the paint with a wire brush attached to a a Dremel. It now has a distressed look. I've coated it with linseed oil. I don't get the handle wet when I soak the brush. I'll add a few more coats of linseed oil, but I've found it works well on wood.
  2. I wasn't' convinced the linseed oil would be enough, so I decided to sand it a bit more, add a stain and then about four coats of polyurethane. I'm very pleased with it. The dark stain hid the remains of the paint.
  3. Looks great. Much better than when it had chipped paint.
