    Lightbulb Cheap Microfibbet tails.

    I'm shure most of you know this, but i decided to post it.
    I've been looking, and i found that there is no difference between Microfibbet's and a Paintbrush.





    look at them closely and give it a try it you'd like

    Most of the regular house paint-type brushes I've seen have too large bristles to look "just right" on mayfly patterns. However, I bought a "artist" type brush and the fibers were about perfect. Much thinner than regular house paint-type brushes.

    I've been experimenting with paint brush bristles also, and also bristles from brooms and push brooms. You're right, once you find the right diameter bristle they work great.

    Justin,
    This is the tips I love to read about and discover on my own too... I have to admit, I have not thought of this before. A pack of tails usually lasts me quite a long time. But, it would be nice to experiment with some of these paint brush ends in a bind. I bet they work well for legs too. I had an old drafting board brush that I have used for different tails.

    Good tip and thank you for sharing!

    You fit in just fine bud! I love your creativity and positive thinking in sharing your idea. Keep up the good work and do not worry about what others think. A man earns a reputation; and the rest fall in to place! Live good and life will treat you good bud!
