I'm a beginner and I need help getting my brushes cleaner.  I decided to spend some money and buy fairly nice brushes at Blicks, but after one month of painting with them every day, they are almost worthless.  Can someone give me advice on how to care for them better?

Thank you!

Hi Mandy—

Three questions:
What is the media with which you are working — oil, acrylics etc.? How have you been cleaning the brushes? Are these natural hair brushes or synthetic?

I can help you if you are working in watercolor, acrylics or casein. If you are working in oil, one of our other members should be able to give you assistance.
