Frugal Artist Tip: 5 Ways To Preserve Paint Brushes

Good Paint Brush Care:
  1. Store brushes with handles down and bristles up.* 
  2. Clean out all of the paint thoroughly immediately after each painting session.
  3. Reshape bristles after cleaning. 
  4. Do not soak brushes in water or solvent.
  5. Do not use hot water- it has been known to cause bristles to fall out.
* Unless you can hang them in some way.

With good brush care you will keep your paint brushes for many, many years.
