Acrylic paint is as long as it is still wet, also washed out with water. Dried paint can only be solved with special cleaning agents. Especially with brushes made of natural hair color should never be dried scraped dry out.

Clean after use of oil paints the brush well at first with a rag. Then the brush with a natural moisturizing soap and then rinse.

When washing the brush by rubbing more thoroughly so that all the ink residue is removed from the brush body.

Natural hair brush, regardless of the used colors / materials regularly with a natural fatty soap (Order 0100-S) wash. Hair is more elastic and thus the brush body retains its original shape better.
