Care of Brushes

1306 Views 9 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  David Dream
Anyone want to share how you care for you brushes. I was (notice past tense) using mineral spirits first to clean them then putting them in soapy water and rinsing them, shaping them while driving. I can't tell you how many brushes got stiff on me with this method!

Now I use mineral spirts to clean them and then put a conditioner on them(it's called pink soap) and then shape them and put them away. They are now staying soft for me and I'm loving it.

Just something I wanted to share.

I paint acrylics....
My bristle brushes are washed in warm water with 2 in 1 shampoo.....
after a quick warm rinse they feel like brand new once dry....
It's interesting and unique! Thanks! :vs-kiss:
