Unless you're a pro, painting the trim details of a room can take longer than the vast expanses of walls and ceilings. And despite careful masking and attention to detail, your results can look somewhat less than professional.
It was those complaints that lead painter Pascal Belley to invent his Styletto Brush.
The polyester bristles of these wood handled brushes come to a point in the middle, resembling an arrow tip. That design allows the brush to adapt to corners, narrow spaces, window sashes and mouldings.
Suitable for oil or latex paints, the brushes come in five widths from one to three inches. A stainless steel ferule prevents rusting and the unfinished wooden handle ensures a good grip.
The brushes are available at major retailers and cost about $10 to $15 each.
