Can Foam Brushes Apply a Fine Finish?
In Mark Schofield’s article (“The Best Brushes,” FWW #212), I didn’t notice any reference to foam brushes. Was this an oversight or does he avoid using them?

I’ve tried foam brushed as a replacement for filament brushes, but I’ve never had much luck. I find them hard to control and I end up with either a dry, streaky strip or a flood. However, I do use foam brushes as a cheap, easy, and quick way to apply anything that will be wiped off later, such as stains, glazes, oils, or oil/varnish blends.
