Artist Tip: Avoid Plumbers!

It's a fact: Acrylic paint and plumbing just don't mix. Yet cleaning brushes calls for water. To avoid gumming up your pipes with globs of paint, here are some steps you can take to avoid costly clogs:

1. When you're done painting, rid your brushes of as much paint as you can by wiping them off on a piece of scrap paper. (Sometimes this results in papers you can later use for collage.)
2. Next, use a paper towel or rag to remove as much lingering paint residue as you can from the bristles.
3.Then vigorously swish the brush back and forth in a large container or tub of clean water.
4. Now proceed to clean your brush thoroughly with Murphy Oil Soap under running tap water. By the time you reach this final step, there should be only a negligible amount of paint left to find its way down your drain.
