I just couldn't resist trying it for myself to see the results, Cynic. I see a similar break to the tail end on the right. I personally thought the garrote brush was a bigger size. Thank you for your encouragement to continue this. Anyone else trying this with a door, make sure you use the area where the metal door lock is because it can dent the wood. I have a few tiny dents in mine. The reason why I couldn't see the edit button in the larger photo above was because it was off the screen. My brushes are old and I don't paint on a canvas any more, but I still have painting sessions with the youngest grandchildren.
