I used to get through a lot of brushes.
I’d buy them but regardless of cost or brand they didn’t last. Being inexperienced, I just put this down to the brushes being poorly made, nothing is made as well as they used to be I’d think.
But then I discovered Masters Brush Cleaner.
It claims to clean brushes after acrylic, oils and watercolours painting and having used it for some time now it really does work, even shifting truly gummed up brushes and does a much better job than the usual cleaning fluids.
It also acts as a preserver. After cleaning, a wipe over with the stuff and then shaping it keeps them in better condition for next use.
The video below demonstrates how to use it and how effective it can be.
It’s not the cheapest stuff in the world but the cost is easily made up for in not having the buy replacement brushes and better results.
If you paint, get yourself some Masters Brush Cleaner you won’t be disappointed.
