Do I ever go through a lot of brushes. I try to be kind to them - really I do. But even when taken care of they will eventually start having bad hair days and, well, it's no use fighting with them. I don't throw away all the old ones. Some can be good for putting down quick large shapes or anything that doesn't need a lot of precision. However, painting should be fun in order to be creative and a dishevelled brush will be no fun if you are wanting accurate shapes or edges. Here's my video about brush care, if you need a refresher. May as well have them last as long as possible. Brush Care Video by Cheryl O
