Care of Watercolour & Oil Brushes

to ensure the best possible performance and longest life for your brushes follow these simple rules:

  1. Always clean brushes immediately after use.
  2. Never leave brushes resting on their bristles.
  3. Shape up bristles with your fingers after cleaning.
  4. If you are storing hog brushes for any length of time, make sure they are clean and perfectly dry and keep them in a box with a tight fitting lid to avoid moth damage. If the brushes are not absolutely dry they may develop mildew.
  5. Paint should never be allowed to dry on any brush.
