"As a painter, the quality and condition of my brushes is critical to the painting’s outcome. I work primarily in acrylic, which is notoriously hard on the bristles. I discovered Jack Richeson Linseed Studio Soap about a year and a half ago and was amazed at how effective it was in removing paint residue and maintaining the brushes’ spring and flexibility.
I’ve been working increasingly with liner brushes. These had been challenging to maintain due to the length and delicacy of the bristle. The Linseed Soap has extended the life of my brushes beyond any reasonable expectation.
Brush cleaning is often the last thing a painter wants to do at the end of a painting session. This product is safe, non-toxic and pleasant smelling. I work a lather through the brushes, repoint them, and set them on their side to dry overnight."
