PaintBox Tip #17 BRUSH CARE
A new term starting and lots of new students, beginners and not-so beginners, so this is a good time to talk about how to care for your watercolour brushes.
Because they're expensive - my first natural bristle brush cost $300 - I'd better look after it!!
that was close to 25 years ago and it's still a great brush - because I look after it!!
Love them and USE them lots!
Yes, you might wear them out or even better, your brush miles will make you want a better brush - fantastic!!
ciao cari pittori!!
Thank you for the updates on brush care. I was instructed a long time ago in caring for my brushes. I was told never to dry them brush up since the water would stay in the ferrule. Many people are not aware.
