All finishes yield their full potential in appearance and longevity when applied with an Omega brush. Only Omega natural bristles possess the fine, flagged ends and required stiffness necessary to apply and smooth a Hollandlac or Eurothane finish. (The use of a roller is perfectly suitable for the application of Satin or Matte paints on large expanses such as walls and ceilings.) The use of a proper brush makes application much less tedious and greatly increases productivity. EUROLUX and ECO paints may be applied with OMEGA Orel brushes (S1290, S1292 and S1263).
Once you invest in good brushes, you will certainly want to care for them properly. We suggest that by following the instructions below, you will substantially improve the quality of your painting results and maximize the serviceable life of your brushes. With good care you will enjoy your brushes for several years.
1) New brushes occasionally contain factory dust and a few loose hairs. Work the bristles gently against your hand until any dust particles and loose hairs have been removed. Then rinse the brush well in good quality mineral spirits and spin briefly using a centrifugal paint brush spinner.
2) Immediately after use, brushes used for alkyd finishes should be thoroughly cleaned with Mineral Spirits and a centrifugal paint brush spinner. With a good paint brush spinner, a brush may be cleaned thoroughly in less than two minutes. A good rule of thumb is if you are stopping for a coffee break, there is no need to clean your brush. However, if you are stopping for lunch, it is a necessity.
3) Brushes which have been used in the application of oil-based finishes should NEVER be used to apply water-based finishes.
FINE PAINTS OF EUROPE is proud to import brushes from the legendary Omega Brushworks of Bologna, Italy. This venerable firm produces a range of brushes made with the famous white, “pure Setola” bristles, noted for their resilience and durability. All OMEGA brushes are handmade and packed full, without a spacer in the ferrule. Hard, vulcanized rubber – impervious to solvents – is used to set the bristles in a stainless ferrule. All OMEGA brushes are mounted on balanced, pecan handles. Quite simply, these are the world’s finest brushes.

“This project was incepted from a place of inspiration and travel. These clients were on a trip to Holland when they fell in love with the colorful and shiny front door style that seemed to be commonplace in the area. After returning home from their travels they did some research and discovered the Fine Paints of Europe brand. They were excited to find a Certified Painter in their area and gave us a call.
We removed the door and installed a temporary door, enabling us to perform the refinishing at our shop. After stripping the mahogany door and applying seven coats of primer we achieved the flat surface we were looking for and applied two coats of Fine Paints of Europe Hollandlac Brilliant in black. Now these clients have a long lasting piece of art for a front door that will remind them of their travels and sense of wonderment at the craft for many years to come.” - @shelton_painting
