Hi there Snowbuns:
To answer your question simply I just buy the brushes at Michaels when I have like a 40 or 50% off cupon they also have the pack of 5 brushes (all one shape of course) that are relatively good for a bargin price. HTH

I prefer to use plastic-handled brushes with synthetic fibers and no metal joint (the part that holds the bristles and attaches to the handle) because I can run these through the dishwasher without any problems.

I bought a Wilton brush set - 3 pieces - lavender coloured handles. They work fine (don't leave brush hairs on fondant or anything) but the problem is that if you get the handles wet the lavender paint starts flaking off (very badly) and exposes the wood handle underneath - I wouldn't buy them again for that reason - I'd go with plastic handles for sureicon_smile.gif
