Here's a wee video about why I use the brushes I do for oil painting and acrylic painting.

Thank you very much Richard for the information,but I am not sure what is "a long low container of Safflower Oil". Is the container vertical or horizontal? Is the tip of the brush in the oil all the time? I was thinking to give myself your brush set as a Christmas gift but was afraid to ruin them as I ruin all my other brushed. How long your brushes can normally last?
Hi Xiao, I wipe them, rinse them quickly in gamsol, wipe again then leave them in a long low container of Safflower Oil until I'm ready to use them again. This stops them from drying out and avoids the hassle of cleaning. Make sure it's a long low container so there's no pressure on the bristles.
Richard, how do you clean and store your brushes so they can last longer?
Thank you Richard, Have just ordered the brushes !
I use the ivory brushes. They are the best brushes I have used.
