I have never had the opportunity to restore a Lucite brush for my personal collection ... until now.

Another great looking restore Gary. Nice pictures too, I like the background you used. Where did you get the knot from if you don't mind me asking?

Thanks. I have been trying out some different vendors as seen in this thread.

As to the knot sources, I afraid that I will have to keep that under wraps.

That looks great. I've always been partial to the old Lucite handles.

I'm a sucker for Lucite! That finest knot blends well with that handle IMHO.
Very nice Gary!

Nice!

Did you do anything special to prevent bubbles from showing?

I was picky on selecting this one and it did not have many bubbles in it. There was one but it was covered up with black paint so it does not show any more.
