    Jerry's Artarama is not local to Atlanta. They have multiple locations. Here is the link I use:

    http://www.jerrysartarama.com/

    The catalog store is located in Raleigh, NC. I ordered on line and was able to make a local pick up, thus saving a bunch on freight. Made those brushes really inexpensive.

    Found Jerry's last night, just for anyone that might be in or near New Orleans there is also Dixie Art with very good prices - $25 for a 2 inch, $54 for a 3 inch. When I ordered mine last year, they were actually drop shipped from Richeson. Guess if I knew what to look for in a brush, I might want to hold one too.

    Hey Mike (good to see you BTW), have noticed the same problem with the paint...do most of you remove the paint or seal it some how?

    Rubberized tool dip stuff you find in the hardware store will seal up the brush just fine. I dip it all the way just past where the metal ferrule touches the wood. You can get some pretty racy colors too: red,blue and of course, the artiste's choice, black

    I tried the rubberized tool dip but it also eventually peeled off, so I stripped the handle of all of the paint, sanded it thoroughly and allowed it to dry, then re-painted with a spray-on coat of black epoxy paint.
