RE: Richeson "Magic" Brush

The metal ferrule is not a problem. That's another one of those alt-photo myths that gets passed on for no good reason. Keep the ferrule out of your emulsion and keep it clean and dry and you'll have no problems. I've been using the same Magic brushes for many, many years for pt/pd printing.

Subject: Richeson "Magic" Brush

I have often seen mention on the list of the wonders of the Richeson 9010 brush.  I'm looking for a better brush to get smoother coatings of liquid emulsion on various papers.  When I checked out what I think is the so called "magic" brush, it appears to have a metal ferrule.  Isn't that to be avoided?
Advice on the Richeson, or other wonderful brushes, welcomed.
