Synthetic brushes

have split ends and synthetic bristles are easy to clean.

I myself have been working with a brush that consists of pig hair for years.

Synthetic brushes

If you maintain these brushes well, you can enjoy them for years.

It is a matter of storing brushes and taking good care of them.

Nowadays, synthetics are nothing less than a brush with pig hair.

The brushes are used for acrylic paint or water-based paint.

The brushes consist of split ends, so you can pick up more paint.

You must of course know how to clean the synthetic brushes.

To clean these brushes, use a special soap.

The name of this soap is called Kernseife and you can order it online.

It is a soap that consists of vegetable fats.

Before you store the brushes dry, it is very important that all paint residues have been removed.

As long as the paint is not yet dry, you can rinse it with soap and water.

If you do not do this, this will be at the expense of the quality of the synthetic brushes.

Another tip from me: always store brushes upright with the bristles up.

If you don’t do this, the brush will become distorted and you will get stripes if you want to paint later.

How do you use artificial brushes?

If you use synthetic brushes you don’t have to worry about not being able to do it.

It’s almost like a boar bristle brush.

The only difference is that synthetic brushes hold more paint.

In addition, the brushes  spread more easily.

It is always trying several times.

Exercise beard art.

Or let me put it another way: it’s just a matter of feeling!
