After a hiatus I am writing a blog post to help my sanity! This next post is all about brushes and brush care. So my question to you fellow painters is: If/when you are/were new to painting what would you like to know or would like to have known about brushes?
Hi all! I'm wondering if anyone has any tips for fixing the fishhook tip that develops on brushes after awhile. Is it even possible? I tried brush shaper with no success (although it's possible/likely there's a technique I don't know about that would make the brush shaper work better) I'd love to replace my brushes less frequently, and salvage some I already have :-)
So this has probably been asked, I've looked around the internet and can't really find any concrete answers. I have the W&N brush cleaner and restorer. I have some dying brushes. How do I use this stuff? Like how long do I need to soak the brushes? Do I even need to soak them, can I just dip it and leave it on for a while? If I have to leave it soaking how do I hold my brushes up without letting them rest on the tip of the brush? I have master's cleaner and I've used that pretty regularly but these brushes are too far gone for just that and since I have it I figure I might as well try it.
My wife got me a nice set of brushes for Christmas. Aside from two she got me a few years ago, I have never had nice brushes before. I have never properly learned how to care for brushes, but would like to do that now. What resources are out there? What should I buy?
