    Paint brush recommendations?

    Now I'm confused again - are you saying they're not good for solvent based paints? I don't use anything water based; it's always solvent or two pack.

    Nope, just pop it in when done painting. The brushes hang on clips so any drips won't cross contaminate other brushes as long as you keep the box upright.

    Paint brush recommendations?

    Sorry. It's a box with vapour inside, which keeps solvent based paints from drying. You hang your brushes in there and never have to clean them (as long as they're used for the same paint of course). The "Brushmate" is one example, but there are other brands. Brilliant bit of kit!

    It's a box with vapour inside :unsure:

    Paint brush recommendations?

    Many thanks - I had those on my list but wasn't sure if they were solvent compatible - I guess the fact that the description says they are vapour box compatible is a clue, but it also says "excellent finish with water based paints", which confused me. I'll give them a go then!

But the only thing I've managed to find is 3mm birch ply which I'm sure is excellent stuff but it of course costs way more than the hardboard option would (£40 per 1525x1525 sheet, vs ~£15-20 per 2440x1220 sheet). I need...

    Trying to source double sided tempered hardboard

    Yeah, it's not hard to find oil tempered hardboard, but most places seem to sell the same "Lion" brand boards, which are wet/wet processed and have the rough mesh reverse. I think it's fair to assume that if it's not explicitly stated that it's smooth on both sides it won't be.

    Trying to source double sided tempered hardboard

    Hi all, I registered here in the hope that someone might be able to help me find 3mm thick (1/8") oil tempered hardboard with smooth face and back - a.k.a. "S2S" or "wet/dry" hardboard. This is readily available in the US, and on the continent, but despite literally spending days searching the...
