Just an Amazing Brush
We bought an old house and the last few years, I have spent a lot of time painting the rooms. Fun, but also not so much fun. I had been looking and reading about faster ways to paint when I came across a review for the 2.5 Picasso Oval Sash brush and decided it couldn't hurt to try.
I am thinking of throwing out my other brushes now.
For cutting in, this brush is perfect. I am not an expert and am not sure how to explain it, but the bristles just seem extremely advanced. First, there are no strays. I don't get that extra one or two bristles that want to leave their own line. Second, when you angle it into a corner for cutting, the bristles just seem to want to stay on the line in a perfect line. It really makes cutting in easy.
I used it on baseboard as well. The top was about 1/8" wide. The brush (and my hand) didn't leave a single mark on the wall.
As I said, if I had more expertise in the technology of paint brushes, I might be able to explain it, but as it is I am just a caveman with a magic brush. And really nice walls.

The Picasso is a great brush, loads lots of paint, cuts-in beautifully, and leaves a very level finish. I have mostly used Purdy brushes over the past ten years, but this is my new favorite. The week after using my new brush our conference room at work was being painted, so I peeked at the paint bucket and saw that this professional was using a Picasso. So, I guess the word is getting out.
Unfortunately, Amazon took a month to deliver the brush - who plans painting that far in advance! It is available at my paint store for just a dollar more, so I supported my local business (and my desire for instant gratification) when I purchased the 2.5 inch version.

It is a good brush for the price.

It cuts well but has too much of spring action on the brush. I still prefer purdy brush over picaso. However, I wouldn't hesitate to purchase it again.
