These new pure bristle Wax Brushes feature short, ergonomic handles to make working wax into paintwork easier than ever. They are shaped to a point so you can get wax into detailed areas and move around in tight spaces. The point is shaped rather than cut making use of the natural split end of the bristle, resulting in these brushes being the best performing and longest lasting wax brushes on the market. The shorter handle has been designed to get into awkward spaces with limited acess and the pointed end is good for intricate carving. I find I apply the wax with the brush to make it easy and the get into the difficult to reach areas and then wipe it 'off' with a cloth.
