  1. I’ve been told you should never leave your brushes in water for too long…the glue binding in the handles will start to dissolve and your brush will fall apart.

  7. You can use a retardant too. I guess it depends on how fast you want the paint to dry. You can also use Golden Open Acrylics, which dry much slower than normal Acrylics.

  8. Yeah, sometimes you only need one of the steps. Thanks for commenting!

  9. Hi Tim…. Great Tips! Those are the things I do to keep my acrylics wetter longer…. never thought to pass the idea along like this…. GREAT VIDEO! FIVE STARS!

  10. You can probably just soak them for 30 – 60 minutes and that would work. I have quite a few cheap brushes too, and they don’t seem to get damaged by soaking them overnight, but it might be safer to just soak them for an hour, and try it from there. Thanks for your comment!

  11. Another set of good tips, I’d be a bit worried leaving my brushes overnight in water, incase it weakened them. I use pretty cheap brushes because I can’t afford much better, but maybe soaking them for half an hour would do the job? Thanks for the great tips! Good stuff for the beginner like me
