I love the case! I can put this in my computer bag and not worry about my brushes getting messed up! 


Top 5 Brush Tips:
  1. Try to only get paint in the hairs of the brush. It's really hard on the brush when you get paint in the metal part of the brush. Eventually it could break down the glue that's holding the bristles in causing them to fall out.

  2. Wash your brush out between different colors. Change your paint water often. Your painting won't get so muddy if you do this.

  3. Buy and use a brush cleaner. Many of them have a leave in conditioner. 

  4. Leave your brush flat to dry. Standing it on end makes the water pool into the metal of the brush. It will eventually break down the glue, and the bristles will fall out. 

  5. Re-shape your bristles after you clean your brush. This will help hold it's nice shape.   

  6. Use cold to luke warm water to clean your brush. Hot water after time melts the glue in the metal part of the brush. 

  7. Use a brush size that fits with what you are working on. Don't use a big brush to paint a small area, and visa versa. This will only cause frustration on your part. 

I love that this kit will stand up right!
