After so many threads concerning brush selection and brush care, we have the occasional tidbit of things not to do to a brush. So I've decided we needed a series of common mistakes that newcomers and old pros can make when using, storing, cleaning their paintbrushes. For starters: 1- When cleaning your brush in a water cup, DO NOT smash the tip on the bottom of the cup (I had old firm hair brushes when I started the hobby). The hairs will get bent around the ferrule, break and the bristles will splay like crazy and lose whatever shape they're supposed to have. 2- Poking with a fine point. It may seem like a good idea for making eyes, but that point will eventually curve. Everyone, contribute your wisdom or tales of errors.
