|This healthy oil suspension approach to paintbrush care allows you to safely leave paint brushes unattended for weeks with paint still in them, while almost eliminating harsh solvents.|
Are you tired of using harsh solvents and want your paintbrushes to live longer lives? Greatly reduce paintbrush wear and cleanup time while extending the life of your oil paintbrushes and almost eliminating solvents. This paintbrush preserver holds up to 6 brushes suspended in 3 magnetically secured stainless steel cups, each tapered to greatly reduce oil use (less than 1/2oz each).
How to use the brush preserver?
When you’re finished painting, suspend the bristle tips into the cups with our artist-quality safflower oil – and walk away. To resume painting (even a month later), blot off the protective oil and continue. It saves time! Just clip it and forget it. You can use the oil in the cups repeatedly. When you decide, used oil can then be put to use cleaning your paintbrushes.
This method of oil storage can go on indefinitely, avoiding solvents and healing your bristles. Or, at any time you’re ready to store your brushes dry (paint first removed using oil), then only a small amount of solvent will remove the remaining oil and your brushes can return to dry storage.
Drying oils offer the ability to effectively surround the particles of pigment and move them out of the bristles. It’s healthy for the bristles and it’s safe for you and the environment. The Windsor & Newton® website even demonstrates this brush-friendly solution in their “How to care for your brushes Masterclass”.
A beautifully weighted base
The base is beautifully weighted for better stability using glass spheres that you can hear and see moving within the base. The steel cups are magnetically attached, which prevents spills and allows for easy removal.
Are you using the right oil?
Solvents dry out and physically wear on paintbrushes. Unlike non-drying grocery store safflower oil, our high linoleic acid safflower oil is good for artist/paint use. Our oil is even edible.
Adding up the value of the clean-up time saved, the extended brush life, and the elimination of toxic cleaning chemicals, and the unit will pay for itself.
