Softener Brush - Lily Bristle

Our Hog (or Lily) Bristle Softener brush is hand crafted in the United Kingdom to the highest standards of quality using only the finest bristle and high quality hardwood handle. This Lily Bristle Softener will give many years of excellent service when used and cleaned with care. The Lily Softener is used to soften and blend coloured glazes for sophisticated, decorative painting techniques, such as marbling and wood graining. It is particularly necessary for creating exotic finishes such as Tortoiseshell, Lapis Lazuli and Porphyry.

Stroke the glaze back and forth in one direction with the tips of the bristles just tickling the surface. Once a direction of glaze appears, stroke the surface at 90° to the first direction. Repeat this all over the work to produce a soft tonal effect.

Immediately after use, wash the brush well in cool soapy water, using hard bar soap. Work the soap into a lather throughout the bristles to condition them. Rinse and hang the brush to dry. Please note: Acrylics dry quickly, keep bristles wet while in use. Clean hardened brush with denatured alcohol (Methylated Spirits).
