I am going to brush paint some cast parts with Rustoleum semigloss black paint. What type of brush is best to use?

in order to minimize brush marks, a more expensive brush that has finely split tips on the bristles works better than the cheap ones. Foam brushes can work well on the bigger flatter parts. The tricky part is going to be the reaching down into corners and tight spots in between places where spray would get right in. Expect the paint to get dull in a few months unless you add hardener and of course take the necessary precautions.

Brush painted these. Rust oleum paint. Cheap dollar store brushes. Good hot day. Hours of cleaning before painting. 3 coats. Little thinner in the paint. Always kept in a shed so color is still bright.
