The prestige synthetic sash brush comes in three sizes: 15mm, 18mm and 21mm – highly acclaimed by professional decorators and is compatible to be stored in your vapour box.
The prestige sash brush can be used in conjunction with a standard Hamilton’s brush for best results and is especially great when used to dispense water-based paints.
Why Sash brushes?
Sash brushes are becoming increasingly popular with decorators/painters as they ensure a fantastically even finish due to its clever design, which can reach even the most awkward areas such as in-between window sashes. Unlike a standard brush which can often leave a varied thickness of paint, sash brushes don’t splay during use and, meaning you’ll get level appearance every time, from start to finish.
Using a sash brush will save you the trouble of having to go over an uneven surfaced caused by a standard brush. When used in conjunction with a standard Hamilton’s brush, a Hamilton’s sash brush can improve an overall job, saving you time and effort without compromising quality.
Choosing the correct paintbrush when applying water-based gloss is vital and synthetic fibre brushes are proven to leave a better finish than natural fibre brushes. Synthetic brushes are made out of materials such as nylon which is softer and less absorbent than its natural counterpart - allowing more gloss on the brush.

Synthetic brushes are made out of materials such as nylon which is softer and less absorbent than its natural counterpart - allowing more gloss on the brush. Natural fibre brushes have the tendency to absorb paint which means it’s often wasted and you have to use more in the long-run.
These fantastic brushes are also long-lasting so you don’t have to worry about your paint brushes letting you down during the middle of a big job.
The Hamilton prestige sash brush is light-weight and designed with a slim wooden handle which is comfortable to grip and can be held at ease like a pen. Comfort is essential when it comes to handling a paint brush and especially important when it comes to using a sash brush; in order to maximise the use of paint when edging, the best technique is to rotate the brush during the paint stroke, which can be done at ease with the slender design of the prestige sash brush.
The rounded head is ideal for cutting in those hard to reach areas on windows and door frames and the brush is designed to clutch profiled surfaces and distribute the paint evenly. The prestige sash brush is also designed to flatten out which is great when covering larger areas which requires larger strokes.
