Minor brush repair - worn shellac

Post by Pauldog » Fri Oct 12, 2018 6:08 pm

I have a wooden brush where the finish is wearing off in a few small spots. Is there something simple I can do to restore it, preferably low or no maintenance? It's not an expensive brush, so my fallback is to do nothing or buy a new one, maybe with a resin handle to avoid such problems. But I hate to throw out something that still works fine.

Would a few dabs of clear coat hobby paint do the trick?

Paul, I have used clear nail polish and it worked very well (it looked fine and it stopped further chipping of the existing finish).
