Looking After Your Art Brushes 

-         Mix a small amount of soap and water into a lather and massage into the bristles. Rinse with water. Reform the tip with your fingers and dry flat to prevent excess moisture gathering at the base of the bristles.

-         Dry brushes can be stored either upright or flat in a cool, dry place out of direct sunlight.

-         Do not leave brushes standing tip down in a water container for a extended period. The bristles may become permanently distorted and loose.

-         Do not allow acrylic paint to dry on the brush. It is extremely hard to remove.

-         If dried paint has made a brush unusable, don’t throw it away. Either end may be suitable for use as a tool for scratching and scraping paint to achieve interesting effects.

-         Remove any excess oil paint from the brush with a piece of newspaper.

-         Pour a small amount of mineral turpentine into a jar with a lid and swirl the brush before wiping it again with the newspaper. Repeat until the remaining oil paint is removed.
