MyArtscape brushes use premium quality ferrules, handles and hair and are assembled by skilled brush-makers. The result is an elegant brush, which is the perfect balance between quality and price. With proper care, they will last a lifetime.
This bends the brush hairs and may permanently deform or damage the brush heads.
Water can penetrate the ferrule and swell the wood, leading to peeling paintwork. Water also rusts metal, degrades glue and bends the bristles.
Even clean brushes during painting, if necessary. Never let paint, especially acrylic paint, dry on the brushes. If paint dries in the ferrule it will bend the bristles, making them difficult to reshape.
Save older brushes for mixing color to avoid prematurely aging new ones.
Gently use your fingers to reshape the brushes after cleaning. Leave them to dry thoroughly before storing.
It is somewhat normal for even the highest quality brushes to lose occasional bristles. Do not pull or tug on the bristles.
