Keeping Paint Brushes Like New

Keeping Brushes Like New by Pati McBride, Scottsdale, AZ

 

When you are done painting and want to get that great edge back on your brush, and keep it that way until the next time you use it, try this:

  1. Clean the brush (I use acrylic, so therefore I clean the brushes with water) and squeeze the bristles between thumb and forefinger to get rid of the excess moisture.

  2. Take an envelope (unused) and run the damp brush over the glue area of the envelope.

  3. Pinch the bristles into shape and store them till next time. The glue acts as a sizing and keeps the bristles in check. You can usually buy odd-sized and old unused envelopes from Hallmark stores and stationary stores.
