Tutorial for brush holder

Postby tasoe » Thursday April 2nd, 2015 5:28am

Step 1 - Catch a cold
Try licking used paper towels, having sick people sneeze in your mouth, walking around naked in the cold etc. When you get a sore throat, you can proceed to the next step.

Step 2 - Buy a pack of Lysopaine discs.
I don't know if you have them in your country, but these are very good when it comes to sore throat problems

Step 3 - Use them till the last one.
It really is a waste buying a product just for the box, so you should use them all. If you get better before they run out, go catch another cold.

Step 4 - Glue the empty box on a base.
You can use plastic, wooden base or something similar. Mine is a 40mm square wooden base.

Step 5 - Paint it.
Prime and paint it in the colours of your choice.

Step 6 - Place your brushes in it.
I think it can easily hold around 7 brushes, I use 4 when I paint. Actually 5, but I keep the one for drybrushing carelessly in a drawer.

Oh, here's a tip in addition to tasoe's:
Always keep the little plastic caps if your brush comes with one.
When done painting and rinsing, PUT YOUR BRUSH INTO THAT CAP and STORE IT BRISTLES DOWN.
Remaining moisture flows out of the ferrule down the bristles which helps keep their natural shape.

And a question: How many brushlickers are among us.
I started doing this recently.

I could have done one this winter. I had a cold about 100 times. There were no consecutive 15 days were I was not sick. Starting from 1 december up until now (I'm actually sick at the moment).

I've actually stopped using the plastic caps. After washing the brush, I wipe the hairs down to remove most of the moisture, then I store it pointing upwards (after licking it slightly to create a fine point).
I understand that keeping the cap on makes it difficult for moisture to go away. Same way as with a toothbrush, After using it, you leave it uncovered to dry properly.

Also, I can't imagine anyone not licking the brushes when it is necessary to make a pointy edge. Those people are a disgrace to the hobby.

Unless you need 15,000 brushholders per annum, try using Vitamin D3. I was constantly depressed and feeling not quite up to any task in December.
Started doing D3 and Lecithin in January and now the sun is shining out of my arse. Have not been ill this winter which is a first as long as I can think.

Next question: what does your thumb look like after a painting session?

Of course I lick my brushes - been doing since I was a kid.
I just put my brushes in an old water glass though.

A painter of higher skill than i told me that storing brushes facing upward is a bad thing to do, gravity would drag paintremains down to the roots of the hairs, pushing your hairs apart. Since that time my brushes are stored flat on tissuepaper. dunno if im doing the right thing to be honest.

I'm going by the manufacturer's tips for storing and caring for their brushes. I assume they're honest but maybe they need me to ruin my brushes in order to buy new ones from them.
The thing about paint remains running to the roots of the hairs doesn't seem too plausible. I mean paint that dried is stuck somewhere, it won't move. Also a brush is supposed to be rinsed before storing.
No paint is supposed to be left anywhere on the brush. I always go to panic mode whenever paint runs up the metal part of my brush, that happens a lot when handling too watered down paints.
I immediately stop whatever I'm doing and run to wash it under running water for a minute. If that thing dries up inside the ferrule the brush will have problems.
