yes, without diligent cleaning, your brushes will be ruined pretty quickly.
[regardless of what medium you are using and if you are painting a cigar box,
desk or a whole house].
it comes down to the price you pay for your brushes (and rollers) and how much they
mean to you. . . . I buy top quality Wooster and Purdy brushes and take care
of them accordingly.
if you want to use your brushes only a couple of times and discard them,
that is totally up to you.

I am a PAINTER – that is what I do – I paint things. so my brushes are an investment.
not something I take lightly.

but ~ if you do find one of your expensive and favorite brushes in a can of hardened
varnish or paint, it CAN be revived and restored back to almost new condition.
there is no need to throw away a $35.00 brush just because it was neglected to the
point of no further use.



-- Failure is proof that you at least tried ~ now, go do it again, and again, until you get it right --
