How to Paint Walls : How to Clean a Paint Brush


Hi, I’m Dan today we are still working on
our demonstration for expertvillage.com. Now we are going to discuss washing out the brush
in between color changes. What we want to do is we want to take hot water. Now the hot
water would break down the pigmentation of the paint. So it is going to water it out.
But you only want to use water if you are using a latex paint. If you are using a oil
base obviously you are going to want to use like a mineral to a paint thinner. What you
want to take and fan out your bristles and you would see the paint leaving the brush.
Now the clean up on the brush of the end of the day is going to be quiet a bit more extensive.
We are going to clean out just a simple oil change. The reason that is because I’m going
to take any dry brush at the end of the day. The way to tell if your brush is clean is
just bend it over and until the water is clear that means that the brush is clean. This brush
is clean. Now in order to dry it out do a couple little shakes at a time against your
hand until you get the water out. Then you just give it a little spin with pushing the
back of the water out of the brush. And there is a clean brush.

    @diesal1232 the white paint in the brush would affect the next colour you wanted to use by making it lighter.

    let it sit for a while, so the sediment goes to the bottom of the bucket, then drain the water into the sink, keeping the as much sediment as possible
