Model Dusting Brushes
Dusting our models, both at home and at shows is a tricky business. Most dusters are too big and risk knocking over the model, or are potentially scratchy. We've hunted around and found these brushes which work great. We're using the same ones at Triple Mountain to dust models for photos. Usually they have to be purchased as a big set, though, and no collector needs a huge number of brushes. So we're making them available individually!
These are Beakey makeup brushes, so you know they're soft - They're made for putting makeup onto faces! These brushes use cruelty-free, soft. synthetic hairs. White tips make it easy to see them on most models. Their comfortable plastic handles are long enough to give you a good grip without being so long that they're in the way.
Large brushes have heads about 1" (3cm) across and are great for dusting larger models all over. They measure just under 6" (14cm) in length, tip to tip.
Smaller brushes have heads around .5 inches (1.25cm) across and are ideal for small scale models and for getting into those deep crevices of Traditional manes and tails. They measure approximately 7" (18cm) tip to tip.
Several head styles are available to suit your preference. Use the drop-down menu to choose a style.
Cleaning: Used for dusting, you can usually just run a finger across the dry head to remove dust and be ready for the next use. If necessary, hairs can be rinsed in cool water, shaped and allowed to dry. Handles can be washed in soap and water. Do not wet the area where the hairs attach to the brush, as this could soften the glue and result in the hairs falling out.
