Hi Leon. I saved this message you posted in January. Apparently, the
Canadian Home Depot stores do not carry the Wooster brand of foam
brush. (not that I could find) Lowes do carry the Wooster brand, but
not the specific foam brush you quoted above.
I guess my question is: What constitutes a good or poor foam brush?
Can you determine a good foam brush by looking at them in the store?
Or, do you have to buy and use various brands to see how well they
work? Barring my finding decent foam brushes, I'll have to go with a
good bristle brush.

Typically a better foam brush will have a plastic ferrule and handle
similar to a bristle brush. The better foam brush is typically not
impaled with a wooden dowel. for a handle. It will tend to feel softer
and smoother than a cheap brush, the cells will be smaller. The better
foam brush will not melt in an oil based varnish or paint and will can
be easily cleaned in thinner several times.
Having said all of that, can you order from Amazon?
