As a Paint Brushes Supplier, share with you.
Please follow the tips below to make your Paint Brush completely unpainted and in a suitable shape for the next job. Even if you do not clean the water-soluble paint, pay special attention to step 5 below. No matter what kind of paint you need to remove from the brush, you will need it.
1. Scrape off excess paint. It seems obvious, but make sure that the brush is as unpainted as possible. Use the edges of the can and then apply some paint to the newspaper before cleaning with soapy water.
2. Clean the brush with a bucket of soapy water. Brush the paint with your hands and brush to make them bristle-free.
3. Rotate the brush in the bucket. Remove any remaining paint and water.
4. Rinse the bristles with a bucket of water. Brush the bristles by hand. After a few minutes, rotate the brush again, then rinse in another bucket of clean water.
5. Wrap the brush in thick paper. Pre-fold the paper, then wrap it around the brush, and tie it loosely with a string. This step is essential to maintain the shape of the brush.
1. The process of cleaning the oil brush is very similar to the process of removing the latex paint. The difference is that you will use a thinner (mineral oil) instead of soapy water to rinse the brush. Before cleaning, make the brush as paint-free as possible again. This is especially important for oil-based paints and varnishes, so you can use less thinner and reduce clutter and troublesome handling.
2. Rinse the brush thoroughly with thinner. Operate the mane by hand (wear chemical resistant gloves, available at hardware stores or home centers). If necessary, use a brush comb to remove paint attached to the brush. Compared with latex, oil paint has fewer problems.
3. Rotate the brush for 10 seconds. After almost all paint solids have been removed from the brush, use the brush and roller rotator.
4. Immerse the brush in a clean paint thinner container. Brush the remaining paint off the mane. Stir the bristles for at least two minutes.
Rotate the brush again.
5. Immerse the brush in a container containing thinner. Stir the brush for about one minute to remove any remaining paint residue. Shake the brush onto the newspaper to remove the varnish thinner and residue. Thinner paint is extremely flammable, please make sure to do it outdoors.
Clean the brush in a bucket of soapy water. Use washing powder or dish soap. Work the bristles only for one minute. Purists may not want to do this, especially with natural bristle brushes. However, rapid cleaning with water will not damage the bristles. Rotate the brush so that it does not get wet, and then shape the brush as described above.
