This is a very heated topic in the Bromoil community.  Most of us use very inexpensive brushes for bromoiling - my favorite is the large basting brush from Williams and Sonoma (kitchen store, also on the web) that I purchased for around $6.00.  Many also use shaving brushes and quite a few brushes can be found at home improvement supply stores (Lowes, Home Depot).

Since we're talking bromoil ...

I am wondering where people get good quality bromoil /oil brushes.

I'm aware of David Lewis, Bostick & Sullivan and Silverprint as sources.

Does anyone know of other sources?
