I don't know where I read this, maybe in PF Journal, Judy?-- Or
maybe somebody on this list mentioned it. I can't remember-- but I
read or heard, not all that long ago, that if you cut the 2 corner
edges of those foam brushes, you end up with a more rounded-type
brush, so when you brush your emulsion on, you can help eliminate the
sharp edge lines you sometimes get with these foam brushes. I tried
it, and it does work well-- for what it's worth.

Thanks for reminding me about the foam but I already have a large
hake so I will try that. I will look for the foam as well.

Lately on this list, you miss two days and you've missed an
But, for what it's worth I mention my experience coating cyano ... The
best brush of various I tried, also the cheapest, also easiest to
was /is the foam brush they sell in your neighborhood hardware
store -- or
they did. Haven't looked for one lately, since I laid in about 10,
including spares and sizes from 2 to 3 to 4 inches wide.
They're much cheaper (used to be about 50 cents each, now I suppose a
dollar) than a decent Hake, and don't shed hairs, which even a good
can do, are much easier to wash, hold plenty of emulsion & spread it
evenly ... Just BE SURE TO GET THE KIND WITH THE BROWN WOODEN
the red plastic handle. That kind has a thinner pad, that is, the
not only thinner, it's also much stiffer, so it doesn't spread
and is generally LOUSY.
That of course was what I found in the States... Years ago these soft
black foam brushes, when/if available "overseas," cost a
fortune... tho I
dunno, maybe now they all come from China ?!?
