Here’s a run down of looking after paintbrushes during and after use.

Paint skins over at different rates depending on heat and draughts but as a rule of thumb, don;t leave paint standing uncovered (unless using it!) The Kovrd is great for slipping your emulsion kit, paint and tray into for 2 minutes or 2 weeks.
