Tips for your Paint Brushes
Keep your brush in the best condition with these tips
1. Let your new paint brush absorb some water before using it for the first time. Spin the handle between your hands for a few seconds to remove the water and you’re ready to roll!
2. Be sure to use a brushkeeper in which you can let your paint brush hang, so the filament tips will not touch the bottom, but only get “their feet wet”.
See to it that your new paint brush always stay wet and refresh the water regularly.
You will smell when it’s time to do that. In this way your brushes will stay in perfect shape for a long time.
3. While working outside, the wind and the sun can make water-based paints dry very quickly.
Therefore always keep within reach a can of water in which you can rinse your brush every now and then.
Because your new paint brush is very easy to clean this will take you no more than seconds. Just a small effort to be able to proceed with a clean and supple brush.
4. These paint brushes are that supple that they allow you to apply the recommended thickness without any effort. You don’t necessarily need a roller to paint doors for example.
Use enough paint and work swiftly, and just use the tips of the brush to achieve a smooth and even finish.
