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?
I use the ivory brushes. They are the best brushes I have used.
