Tuesday's Tip

I spent the weekend in collage and art journal workshops. We used a lot of gel medium to glue various papers and materials. I usually like to use a wood handled paint brush (not a foam brush), which I wash and use many times. Sometimes, during all the washing, the bristles start to fray and pull out.. To get a little more mileage out of the brush, I will trim the bristles to even them out. Give it a try!

Oh yes, that has definitely happened to me with my brushes. I have never thought to trim them! Thanks for the cool tip!
