Acrylic paints are really hard on brushes! I have used a number of products over the years to clean! But I guess my favorite is my little jar of paint soap and the lid has texture for working the soap and paint from the bristles! This weekend I couldn't find that so I just used my glycerin soap and my hand! (I also was fond of Murphy's oil soap)
So here are some of my rules!
- often rinse while painting; as soon as the paint gets less than 1/2 way up the fibers; I rinse!
- lay flat to dry!
- don't leave a brush standing in the water dish; it bends the bristles
- use cold water to wash the brushes!
Now I have another set for watercolor painting! :)
Thanks for stopping by! Have a great day!
