Brush Cleaning Gel | The Vintage Bird
Our Vintage Bird Brush Cleaning Gel is a must have for furniture and decor painters.
This coconut oil based cleaner is non-toxic, solvent free, and biodegradable.
It’s great for all acrylic and water based paints, and is also a safe and gentle way to wash your hands after painting.
A little bit of this thick gel goes a long, long way. A small pea sized amount is enough to produce sufficient foam to clean 1 to 2 medium brushes, or 3 small, artist brushes, making it great value.
- Apply gel directly to brush tip after dampening the brush under warm water.
- Gently massage the gel through the brush bristles. It will form a thick, creamy foam.
- Continue to massage foam through bristles and then thoroughly rinse your brush under warm water. Always rinse your brush holding it tip down so paint residue doesn’t get lodged in the ferrule during cleaning.
- Spin off excess water
- If you’re using a Cling On brush, they can be stored with the tip resting in a shallow jar of water after washing to keep the tips moist. You can find comprehensive info on caring for our Cling On brush here to keep it in tip top shape.
Our Cleaning Gel can also help to remove old, dried paint from the bristles and around the ferrule of your brushes. Place some gel on a damp brush and massage in as described above. When you have a thick foam, place the brush into a jar of warm/hot water and soak overnight. Massage again in the morning, rinse throughly and enjoy using your revitalised brush!
Comes in a 50ml jar. Keep jar sealed when not in use.
Happy Painting :-)
