Cleaning sealant out of brushes

Recommended Posts

So just a random question, or comment: 

 

I have a brush that I always use for sealing my miniatures and thought I at least rinsed it out reasonably well or cleaned it out. Apparently not.  Last  week when before I used it, I actually took an exacto knife to the brush and started scraping old sealant off bristles, until it was actually much cleaner than it as previously.  Has anybody else ever done this?

Did you try Pink Soap or Master's Soap first? The only time I'll take a xacto to my brush is to trim stray hairs.

Unfortunately in my experience warm water and The Masters doesn't cut it for me with the brand of varnish I use.

Vallejo, the gloss is the worst of the three. Last time I used it I still had some minor residue after cleaning three times with The Masters.

And I was using Vallejo matte varnish.

I just rinse mine with water and then use the masters brush soap. I haven't had any problems so far. Oh, and I have used vallejo varnishes like this too.
