Clean paint brushesthat have hard paint on


How to clean hardened paint of your brush.

We all forget to clean a brush every now and again and only realise it once the paint has dried rock hard and solid. Here is a way to loosen the paint and revive that dead brush.

The brush I used had oil paint on it. If you have a brush that has acrylic on it, use water instead of turpentine.
