  1. This Will Just Mess Your Brushes Up. Use “The Masters Brush Cleaner” It Cleans Oil Paint Burhses And Acrylics. It Is Magical Fairy Dust That Cleans Your Brushes.

  2. Never ever ever..let your brushes sit over night in anything. You know how he showed you the brush and the bristles expanded and lost the original shape they came in? That is from leaving the brushes in water (as well as a little general ware and paint in the bristles).

  3. I paint houses, and thiis video was so helpful !
    i have been using mineral spirits/paint thiner for my brushes, I did the water+soap, it was just so nice to find my tools so clean after using the mineral spirits(after living the brushes in water+soap)
    AWESOME, thanks!

  4. don’t letting brushes sit in water for a long time dissolve the glue holding the bristles together? that’s what i herd anyway, i might be wrong.
