Maintaining brushes

Post  Matthew G on Wed Oct 17, 2012 6:04 pm

Looking for feedback here.
How do you guys maintain your brushes so as to keep them perfect all of the time.
How to you store them?

Im finding all my brushes get this dried paint junk a the base of the bristle, right against the metal part....... :S

If you are getting lots of paint against the base you might be putting to much paint on the brush at a time. I ruthlessly clean my brush while using it. After every 10-15 mins I wash it even if I am using the same color.

Yeah, if I find that paint is starting to dry on the brush itself, I just swish it around in my water glass, scrape it off against the lip of the glass a few times, and then give it a few passes over paper towel.

Yeah.
I have been using the side of my water pot to scrape the brush against and according to a vid i watched on yewtewb thats a huge no no. And could explain my shitty luck with brushes.
I picked up another new base coat bush yesterday, and what the difference.
