Protect your bristles

I like to recycle, upcycle, and reuse things as much as I can when modeling.

To protect my brush bristles, I cover them with tubes cut out of pump soap dispensers. Look for brands that use small-diameter tubes.

Once you’ve emptied the soap, twist off the pump assembly. Rinse it thoroughly with warm water until it’s completely soap-free.

After it air-dries, cut the tube to the length needed. Make sure to cut a piece long enough so that it covers the ferrule (metal cap or band holding the bristles) to ensure the tube stays on the brush and that it extends well past the end of the bristles. Your brush is now protected.
