If memory serves that was called a buckle brush, didn't have to be glass,
a flat shim of wood would serve, and the ones I made (from instructions in
old process books) used strips of flannel from worn out nightgown... I
think it was what they used before they had foam. I ultimately abandoned
it in favor of the nice soft foam brush (one with the wood handle) for a
number of reasons including that if there were the least irregularity in
the underlayment, it left a mark when coating with something rigid.
The foam takes that in stride.
