Little Mermaid / paintbrush

Little Mermaid
Little Mermaid

House repainting has become a trend that people usually do it by their selves, instead of hiring professional painting workers to do it. However, traditional paintbrushes are not suitable for laymen to use because the grip of paintbrushes is an extra part sometimes. Professional workers know how to use brushes but laymen don’t since there's no hint for them to learn how to use a paintbrush. Little Mermaid features a unique handle designed to lessen fatigue and cramping by giving a hanging hook molded into the side of the bottom for fingers to rest on. With this design, it is easier to hold the grip in either vertical or horizontal direction.
