Re: [BKARTS] Removing dried PVA from brushes??



I've found letting the brush sit with a paste of the "Masters' Brush
Cleaner and Preserver".  Wet the brush, swirl it on the surface if the
cleaning compound till it is coated and let sit.  After awhile work the
compound into the softening bristles. Rinse and repeat as necessary.  It
may take a while, but I've found the brush does come clean, especially
the smaller ones.

Nope - stick it in hot water for a while (a few hours), then wash it
with soap.  Should be fine.

  So, I completely spaced the other night and left my glue brush,
  full of PVA sitting on my bench. Did I completely screw it up or
  is there some way to remove the dried PVA from the brush?
