For care of for your natural brushes.
Soak the hairs of your new brush in neatsfoot oil. Push the oil into the ferrule (the metal part that holds the hairs). Work the brush into the chisel edge using your fingers and stand on end (hairs up) for an hour or more.
Before use, wipe the excess oil off the brush with a rag and give it a rinse in some clean white spirit.
While using the brush some paint may start drying and this can affect the cleanness of the chisel edge. If this happens, wipe the excess paint off and give it a quick rinse in some white spirit before continuing to paint.
After painting, give your brush a thorough clean. First wipe as much excess paint off the hairs as possible with a rag. Rinse it in stages using white spirit, from dirty to clean (1,2,3), wiping off the spirits and paint each time. When pressing the ferrule down in the clean spirits there should be (ideally) no paint coming out. If paint is still visible then continue rinsing and wiping.
Once the brush is clean, use the neatsfoot oil or vaseline to cover the hairs, massaging it in to get the brush back to a chisel edge.
Store carefully in a box or upright so that the chisel edge is preserved.
When you’re ready to paint again, return to step 2 above.
