Thanks mea, I did follow Dennis instruction, somehow I am at the 3rd ruined brush. I use the same Ivory soap and I roll the brush a lot into it with water. Everything is well, but when I clean it up, I found pieces of "dry" fluid that do not want to come off.  :thankyou:

Doina,


I do not use water with the soap.  Just soap.

Doina,

Hmmm... I can't remember how I did it so I just did a test and used no water.  Had to use alcohol to get the masking fluid off the brush, so I think the brush needs to be slightly damp enough for the soap to cling.

Hope that helps.

Make a thick lather to coat the brush. You'll have to recoat the brush each time you rinse off between applying the fluid.
Cheers, Val

Thanks, Val, for bailing me out on this one.  Now I remember the "lather" part.

I rinse the brush, tap it out then roll it across soap before each dip into the masking fluid, works like a charm.  I keep those little cakes of soap from hotels for the job.

I do the same....get lots of lather after each dipping, but I've found after I'm done, there is sometimes a residue.  I found the flea comb, from my doggy grooming kit,  gets all the "crumbs" left on the brush and it's absolutely clean. I just 'comb' my bush a couple of times, n it's all gone!
