how to repair the art flat brush when the hair split?
I am a artist. Many of my paint brushes are not able to hold the hair together. Are they broken? I am so many of them….is any other way to save them? The round ones are not pointy, and the flat ones are not able to hold the hair together. They are size 2,3,4..
There are many reasons why this things happen to brushes. The first I can think of is that the brushes are simply of inferior quality and after a fair use they simply wear down. But perhaps the most common reason is that you are not cleaning your brushes properly. When you clean your brushes with the turpentine/thinner/mineral spirits etc.. some of the liquid which still has some paint is getting to the metal part that’s holding the hairs. It then dries and the base hardens which causes the hairs to split, this also happens when you dip the entire brush in you mediums/oils and are absorbed by the hairs which harden at the base where the metal part is. Check your brushes and make sure that the hairs are fully flexible, there shouldn’t be hard at any part. In order to avoid this do not dip the entire brush in oils, make sure that the thinner/turpentine is clean, and after cleaning them with the thinner/turpentine wash them with water and soap preferably dishsoap because they are made to get rid of oil. Lastly all brushes will eventually wear down one way to keep them in shape is by using milk. Once a brush is fully clean, take one like a round one for example and dip about half way the hairs in milk and shape it. When the milk dries it will harden the hairs and leave it like so for a couple to a few days. When you want to use it simply bend the hairs and you can also add a little water, and it will be soft again.
