Keeping oil paint brushes soft.

Hilton from New Brunswick got tired of cleaning brushes after using oil paint and always having them end up a bit stiff.

He began using an orange-base, pumice hand cleaner on the brushes after cleaning with varsol. He just works it in and lets it dry.

A couple of days later he cleans it out with soap and water -- and the brushes come out as soft as your hands. We tried it -- and it works great.

Thanks Hilton.
