Hello! My name is Romina and, I am a self-taught painter.
In this article, I show you how to take care of paintbrushes.
The acrylic paint damages the brush bristles quickly. That’s why these tips are so important.
The first piece of advice I’m going to give you is: “Buy mid-range brushes. Not very expensive, not very cheap. You’re going to have to replace them often.”
Synthetic hair brushes are the best option. A brush is good when, after using it, its bristles maintain their original shape.
Tip # 1
Never leave your brushes dirty with paint. Once dry the acrylic paint, you can not remove it from the brush bristles. So wash your brushes!
Tip # 2
Never leave your brushes submerged in water for long periods. If this happens can damage the bristles and the wood.
Tip # 3
When you finish painting, clean and dry your brushes well. You can use a special soap to clean the brushes deeply.
Remember to store your paintbrushes with the bristles facing up.
If you follow these tips, you will make the brushes last longer. This way you will save some money.
I hope these have been useful. I wish you a week full of creativity, and I hope to see you next time.
