The butterscotch handles are exquisite. They all seem to be polished up quite nicely.
What do you do to give them all that nice luster?
Thank you Piyush, you probably recognize a few of those brushes. To polish vintage brushes I use my 8" bench buffer with a loose flannel wheel, blue compound and a very light touch. This is a very slow process as you have to make sure to polish the brush very evenly or it will come out splotchy. It is less aggressive than liquid/paste polishes so doesn't effect the lampblack or the shade of butterscotch as much but you can get a very glossy finish if desired.

Then I realized that I should go ahead and grab all of them and just post it for others to enjoy. There are a few brushes that appear in more than one photograph because, as I mentioned, I was originally planning on updating specific threads.
Butterscotch (my main addiction):
Restorations completed by me, still in rotation:
Boars, Horses and mixed:
I have more brushes on the way that I will add here later on and several brushes in the garage awaiting restoration, but overall I am very pleased with my selection and there are a few that may be destined for a new home, but none are rushing out the door.
Oh wow.. This definitely seems some "good" addiction.. Simply incredible
