CARE:

Clean paint from bristles with warm water (water-based paints) and store with brush hanging downwards so water drips out of the ferrule. Leaving the brush laying flat or with the brush upward while drying causes water to stay inside the ferrule and will loosen the glue holding the cow hairs in place. Never leave brushes “soaking” in a jar of water as this will loosen the glue holding the bristles inside the ferrule.
