Every painter needs a solid brush cleaning and care protocol. For miniature painters, this is especially important because brushes are often small, fragile, and expensive!
If you’re a miniature painter and hobbyist who loves work on scale models, tabletop gaming minis, and similar small figures, your brushes are your most important tool.
The most common type of paints for miniatures are acrylic model paints, which come in a variety of colors, brands, and characteristics that are ideal for painting models.
However, acrylic paints dry quickly and if left on a paint brush will slowly destroy bristles and ruin the brush, entirely. Brush care is therefore essential for extending a brush’s service life, and will enhance your enjoyment of the miniature painting hobby.
