Hake brush hack

Simple hake brush math

Here’s an easy time-saver for anyone who uses shelf primer on a regular basis.

Take a minute to make a wider hake brush & you’ll shave time off of how long it takes to apply shelf primer to a kiln shelf. We have a few of these around & they’re our go-to brushes, whether we’re priming a bunch of 21″ square kiln shelves or larger, like this shelf in a Pearl-56.

Connect a full size/standard brush (5.5″) to a short section of another brush (they’re perforated or maybe you already have a broken one) with hot glue & duct tape. Voila! Having a variety of widths in the studio is handy for different applications. Just make sure that the wide one still fits in your primer bucket!

Simple & effective!
