Chroma Incredible Brush Cleaner

Chroma Incredible Brush Cleaner is ideal for revitalizing old hard paintbrushes or as a regular cleaner to keep your brushes in perfect condition. This product is made from a special formulation that is designed to break through hardened acrylic, oil or lacquer on natural and synthetic paintbrushes, bringing them back to life. How do you clean your brushes?

  • If cleaning oil or lacquer, rinse brushes in Archival Oils Odourless Solvent then dry with a cloth. If removing acrylic, rinse excess paint with water.
  • Use Incredible Brush Cleaner undiluted, gently working the cleaner back and forward well into the bristles, creating a thick lather of bubbles.
  • Rinse well in lukewarm water to ensure all of the Incredible Brush Cleaner is removed from the bristles and water runs clear.
  • Re-shape the bristles and let them dry.

When shaping round brushes twist and pull the bristles through your fingertips to create a neat point. When shaping flat or filbert brushes pinch and pull the bristles through your fingers to create a crisp edge.

Dry brushes flat surface, ideally with the bristles hanging off the edge of the surface. The edge of a bench or sink works perfectly. This helps with the longevity of the glues at the furrow. Drying upright encourages a buildup of water and soap residue that can deteriorate the glue over time. Never dry your brushes bristle down!
