use paint brushes from michaels. The soft grip brushes in the paint isle. I washed them before I used them and they don't leave hairs all over the cakes like some other brushes do. They come in several sizes and are worth it. I've heard of particular brushes to use but I really don't paint a lot ( just got into it) so i'm happy with them for now.

I bought paint brushes from Michaels and the paint from the handles flaked off. I must have bought the wrong ones. Do the soft grip ones have a brand name? I would love to try them so I don't get paint flakes in my cakes! icon_smile.gif

Royal is the name on them. They come in singles in the paint section. A friend of mine says they are really good for painting too ( she's an artist) and she was asking about them as well. I really like them a lot.

edited to add: the handles are clear plastic but they have some kind of rubber and are super comfortable for those details that take some time.

Buy synthetic. The real camel hair, etc. falls off the brush too easily and is hard to pick off. I usually use soft white synthetic bristles with clear non painted handle. Not usually the cheap ones in the sets. I prefer to buy one good one that 5 bad at Michael's.
