When it comes to the miniature painting there are a lot of details that can influence the final resault of the paint and can and affects the amount of time you can use the brush.
What you should and shouldn’t do with your brush?
How should look perfect setup for miniature painting?
First of all does the type of the brush matter?
Yes usage of different types do matter.
There’re two types of brush used in the painting industry the syntetic and the natural brushes. You can use only one type of the brush, there is no need to have both of the types.
When should you use the specyfic type of the brush?
Use of the different type depends of the surface, place and the paint that is required to paint. In our company painters’re using natural brushes while doing the detailed lining because artificial ones are deforming in detailed paint.
When it comes to the dry brush technique we use the syntethic brushes instead.
What can affect “the life” of the brush?
When it comes to extending the life of your brush there’re some things that can affect the life of the brush.
1. Painted surface
The most important aspect that can affect the life of the brush is the surface that you’re painting. The brush will wear more on metallic or resin surfaces than on the plastic ones.
2. Pressue on the brush
You shouldn’t push the brush too hard when you paint, treat the brush gentle.
3. Picking up paint with bristles
It’s not recommended to pick up the paint with the bristles. Do it with the edge of the brush or any other thing but remember to keep that thing clean.
4. When you finish the painting keep the brush in case
After the job is done you can keep the brushes on the table but remember to not keep them directed to the top.
When you taking your brushes away you should keep your brush in plastic case directed down to the floor. It’s important because rest of water won’t soak into the brush structure.
