An improved multifunctional brush which is suitable both for painting larger surfaces and for finer paintwork such as edges and lines. The brush is made up of a larger main brush and a smaller auxiliary brush which are connected with each other during operation. The auxiliary brush is enclosed by the main brush and is forwardly or rearwardly movable within it to achieve two operative conditions: a first, retracted position and a second, extended position, in which first condition the bristle surface of the auxiliary brush is completely flush with the bristle surface of the main brush and in which latter position the auxiliary brush can be used for finer paintwork. The brush according to the invention comprises different features which realize an improved brush over the state of the art, namely, a threaded connection between auxiliary brush and main brush with various advantages, and a design of auxiliary brush and main brush whereby the main brush can be implemented without handle, thus yielding a very simple construction with which material saving, operational reliability, easy cleaning and environmental benefit are achieved.
