Paint Brush Cleaner (Oil Based Paint)


The process of cleaning a paint brush starts at the beginning of the painting day. Don't dip a new or dry brush directly into the paint. Paint on the outside of the brushes up near the handle can harden within an hour or two.  You can prevent hardening, or slow the hardening of the paint in your paint brush, by wetting the brush with, if you are painting with oil-based paint, by dipping the brush in paint thinner before getting paint on the brush. Be sure to lightly shake out any excess water or paint thinner before dipping the brush for the first time into the paint. 

If you take breaks during painting, you need to get the brush out of the sun, and wrap it with a rag soaked in paint thinner if you are applying oil-based paint.  It keeps the paint on the brush fresh.  Below a a paint brush cleaner for oil based paint.  Source: Askthebuilder. com
