  • "The Master" Brush Cleaner and Preserver

    I am not sure if this should go here or not but I was wondering if anyone used this stuff? If so what do you think of it?

      Moved to the appropriate section.

      Also, this discussion actually came up here: http://wamp-forum.com/VB4/showthread...ush-discussion

        I picked some up and I think it's an improvement over the Mona Lisa pink soap I was using. My goal is to get more use out of my raphael brushes before they lose their point. I was concerned the pink soap was taking the oils out of the brush. It's been too soon to tell with the masters product but I think it's not as harsh.

          when do you apply it before putting the brush away? or do you wash the paint off with it?

            With most brush soaps, you usually clean the brush as you normally would (with just water), and then while the brush is wet, use the soap on it. Then rinse it out in water again. If you'd like, you can then use the soap again, but let the brush dry with the soap in it (so that it dries all pointy). If you do so, don't forget to rinse it out again before painting next time, since it'll still have soap in it.

              I use the Masters Brush cleaner and preserver and think it's brilliant. It keeps your new brushes in top condition and even restores old knackered ones. You use it at the end of the day jus before you pack 'em up and can even use it to condition the bristles. Also, it lasts for ages so well worth the 8 or nine quid price tag. My Windsor and newtons are as good today as when I got them which is well over a year ago now.

                sound like something I should be doing I am terrible at caring for brushes I blame my old Man when I started out he was a Dept Head at a services school they used to get bulk orders of resources from the UK which inclued fine brushes. As you can guess I did not pay for any brushes till I was at Uni. I am getting better with them now but will have to have a look at some of these products.

                    I use it too. Does a good job. Hell, it even almost restored a brush that I accidentally got superglue on. Not to the stage where the point was restored to it's best but not far off.

                    I use it to wash the brush at the end of a paint session. You can always use hair conditioner for extra preservation.

                      +1 ... I use it and leave it in to dry and condition the bristles between sessions. Maybe not every time or even as often as I should, but I do use it and I am sure it helps.

                        I used it on an old GW dry brush and I love this stuff it actually made it almost like new. I am stuck on this stuff now thanks guys.

                          I bought some to get paint out of my carpet, actually. I was mixing up some airbrush mix, and when I moved to put my massive bottle of Tamiya thinner on the shelf, it slipped out of my hand, smacked the side of the airbrush bottle just perfectly to send it rocketing across the room while spinning, which resulted in a very interesting spray pattern on the floor. It helped , but didn't do a perfect job.

                          I do like using on my brushes, though. It actually game some new life to a drybrush, which was pretty impressive. Did a great job getting some dried paint off of my good Rosemary's.

                            This stuff works great on paint, I spilled some GW Tallarn flesh on the carpet and this got it all out.
