• The most important is to remember to keep brushes away from light and air, as oil paints tend to polymerize.
  • Wash your brushes right after painting!
  • Firstly, rinse brushes in thinner (pinene, turpentine, white spirit) and squeeze dissolved paint out with a napkin.
  • Then wash brushes with laundry soap and warm water. To completely get rid of remaining paint from the base of the brush tuft, rub a brush against the palm of your hand or use any ribbed or rough surface.
  • Slightly dried brush can be wrapped in a piece of paper and formed into its original shape, so it will preserve proper look and qualities.
  • For extra treatment you can apply liquid oil or vaseline to brush hair until your next painting session.
  • If you are too lazy to wash your brushes every time or you intend to get back to your work soon, then you can leave them in vegetable oil. It creates air proof layer and prevents paint drying. But we strongly recommend not to leave brushes in such a way for a long time(no more than 12 hours), as brush hair can be damaged, especially soft synthetics.



  • Never cut brush hairs, otherwise your brush will lose its precise point. In our production each brush head
  • is assembled by hand: hair to hair and is never cut.
  • Dry brushes away from direct sunlight, heaters, avoid drying with brush hair facing up.
  • Choose horizontal position for drying.
  • Do not use acetone-based cleaners, as it may dissolve brush tuft glue.
  • When traveling, avoid hair deformation by using special case or wrapping brushes in paper.
  • Do not leave in the water with brush hair facing down and crushed by container bottom, hair damage can be irreformable.
  • Special gumming compound preserves perfect brush head form, improves hair characteristics, protects for transportation, and helps to demonstrate the shape to artists. Wash it off with running water before the first use.
  • If you want to save damaged brush hair, place it in hot or boiling water for a moment, set it to original form.
  • Brush handles are protected with chemical-resistant lacquer or lacquer impregnation, so it makes them water-resistant. Though we would not recommend keeping brushes in water for a long time below the ferrule level.
  • Use a different set of brushes for each type of paint.
