Re: [BKARTS] what a devil to clean....



I got used to using Murphy's Oil soap for brushes in my school room. It
cleans anything out of brushes. I just wonder about being able to get all
the soap out of the brush for archival work.

I clean Jade PVA with hot/warm water and occasionally some dish soap.  I use
cheap stiff art brushes and am not afraid to let them soak for a couple of
days if need be.  Haven't lost any yet.
