RIP little paint brush

Posted by FredG on 01 Feb 2017, 21:14

My favourite paintbrush has worn out. I will observe 12 hours mourning before attempting to break in a new one. I have a whip and chair at the ready.
Wish me luck.

New brushes never quite work as well as the tried and true one!

AH-HA! Yes good old faithful,bites the dust! However I always keep the handles and use them for other purposes within my world of dreamy toy making activities. BB

I tried out the new one, luckily the whip and chair weren't necessary.
It finished off the detail on this little crew.

I feel your pain, a favorite sculpting tool is needs replacing soon and finding a new one is the worst

My favorite brush got saturated with dried acrylic paint that water won't dissolve. Otherwise it is probably okay. Anyone have advice to help me out?

I did not have any Vallejo airbrush cleaner, but I did find some Tamiya Acrylic thinner XT-40 that I bought YEARS ago. It worked like a charm. Old faithful is back in action.
