    Richeson 9010 brush - magic?

    So, I bought a new 1½" Richeson 9010 brush from Jerry's Artarama on-line without having seen one before. I'd imagined that the bristles would be shorter than they are on this brush (about 1½" or so) ... which makes me wonder if this is the "magic" brush I have heard so much about.

    Here's what I bought: Richeson Series 9010 Synthetic Flat, size 1½" (Jerry's #29125 - 3rd one down on this page)

    I'd appreciate it if someone can verify this so I can return it if need be before I use it.

    Thanks,
    Nathan

    it will make a world of difference in your printing Nathan. Good luck with it.

    one key note: dont use one brush for multiple processes. Get a brush soleley for each individual process you might print in.

    as bill said, happy printing.

    That's the one - the Queen of the brush, at least the coating one

    I'm new to this...but was wondering, aren't alt process brushes not supposed to have a metal ferrule?

    It is rare that you would ever use enough sensitizer to dip the brush all the way to metal. It has never been a problem for me, I just keep it clean,

    Yet another urban myth of alt-process work. There is no reason for the sensitizer to touch the metal ferrule. You should however, keep the ferrule clean and dry when not in use so it doesn't rust.

    While we're at this subject...Do you place your brush facing up or down while leaving it to dry after washing it? My concern is that facing up might loosen the bristles after a period of time and facing down would cause the rust (if any) inside the ferrule to flow downward to the bristles.
