A Painting Tip

Here's a little painting tip for you:
When you are done with a coat and need to wait for the paint to dry,
don't wash your brush...

Instead place it in a plastic bag and seal it as tightly as you can.


If you need to wait for a longer period of time between coats, you can then place your plastic wrapped paintbrush in the refrigerator. When it comes time to paint another coat your brush is ready to go!

The plastic bag is a good idea. I've used tin foil too with good results.

So smart. I am usually too lazy and/or easily distracted to rinse out my brushes, so I just end up with a lot of unusable crunchy paint brushes... this is a much better solution!
