Over the years we have noticed that more and more folks are putting down their oil paints because they don't want to deal with mineral spirits and the market has responded with different products. In 2012 we came up with the D.I.Y brush cleaner and uploaded a video last year on how to make it. While many folks liked the D.I.Y brush cleaner it was lacking in performance. Now in 2018 6 years later we have the answer with my new signature handcrafted brush soap!
The 3 main needs of a brush cleaner / soap
Conditioning: D.I.Y brush cleaner will clean your brushes in a pinch, but it doesn't condition your brush. When using water to clean your natural brushes you must use a product that will condition the bristles so it doesn't harm your brush and will actually extend the life of your fine artist brushes. You should condition your brushes at least 3 - 4 times or more a year depending you how much you paint. You will be surprised at how much pigment comes out when using my new brush soap and how great your brushes feel after. Almost like a brand new brush!
Shaping / reshaping: You need the product to give you the ability to reshape the brush so when it's dry it doesn't puff out. D.I.Y brush cleaner doesn't offer this. My new brush soap gives you the ability to reshape old brushes that have lost their shape.
Restore: Restoring brushes isn't easy but with the right product it can be done depending on the condition of the brush. My new brush soap will allow you to restore old brushes that have harden, lost their shape and will remove old dried paint. ( If the brush is caked with dried paint you will not be able to restore the brush )
