Bringing “Dead” Synthetic Art Brushes Back to Life
This brush restoration run-through on Midwinter Minis is very basic, but there are some good tips in here. For instance, the use of matt clay hair product to condition your brushes and how to re-point them in the palm of your hand after cleaning and conditioning.
They also make an important point about re-purposing brushes. A used-up base coating brush can become a dry brush and a dry brush can be given a hair cut to become a stippling brush. And old, exhausted brushes can always be pressed into service as a glue brush.
