Available now at Velvet Finishes are polyester paint brushes, perfectly named – THE REVIVER!
They are perfect for painting all VF products. The bristles are just the right amount of stiff. Natural hair bristles become overly saturated in water based paints and become heavy and ‘floppy’. The longer the bristle, the ‘floppier’ they become. And nobody likes a floppy bristle. And even better? Our brushes can be used for either VF COLOUR paint or our ENHANCE products! No need for multiple types of brushes!!
Now, let’s get into how to clean your paint brushes.
As you guessed, with THE REVIVER it’s a super easy process. Read on!
How do I clean my brushes?
Before any cleaning, make sure your plumbing is in perfect coondition, unless you want that dirty paint water all over the place. To clean your brush, simply rinse under faucet in tepid water until clear water is seen. Clean up is a snap with Velvet Finishes! No special soaps or products needed.
How do I dry my brushes after cleaning?
If you can hang your brush upside down for drying, do. If not, absorb the excess water with a towel or rag and prop the brush on something so that the bristles are not touching anything. After your brush is dry, store it in the bristle cover that came with the brush. This will help keep the bristles in the best shape possible and extend the life of the brush. Good brushes aren’t cheap, but they will last for years if they are taken care of well.
Between coats, brushes with paint may be stored for later use. Place brush end in a storage baggy, mush the bristles in the bag and store in a cool place. Use within a few days or rinse paint out of brush.

Yes! You read that right! You do not need multiple brushes when using multiple products.
We all know that a good paint brush can make or break a paint job. If you don’t invest in a high quality paint brush, you can be left with a finish full of bristles from the brush and even brushstrokes, which are such b.s.
