Pinstriping Brush Cleaning and Care: Always clean out pinstriping brushes well using the proper solvent or thinner for the paint your using. Some cleaning agents that contain more than 5% Methonal can attack the glues for the threads holding the pinstriping brush hairs to the wooden handle, in simple terms, Methonal can ruin the brushes. After a good cleaning, store brushes used in oils or solvent in Brush Oil to keep the hair relaxed and to prevent any paint that is trapped in the hilt/ferrule of the brush from drying. Brush oil can be cleaned out with Mineral Spirits, Turpentine and if need my may use Laquer thinner before using the pinstriping brush the next time.
Brush Tips by Ron Percell, I always use refined Lard Oil as a brush preservative to get the most life out of my Brushes. I ran across a old sign kit of mine that had been stored for 15 years and the refined Lard oil was still fresh. Before I used some of those vegtable based products and they would dry and crystalize in 3-6 month, it took some serious soaking to get the stuff out of the brushes. Over the years of making professional chemicals for the sign painting industry I've learned that those few waterbased (plant based) oils are natural Varnishes, now tell me, would you leave varnish in your brushes, I don't think so. Avoid automotive oils, they have detergents which eat at the hairs. In a pinch, mineral oil will for a short time but isnt thick enough, so stick with refined Lard Oil like the Old Timers did...
