There’s so much to learn when you’re slinging paint and pencil, so today begins a new monthly segment here on Muddy Colors… ‘Art Tip of the Month, with Jeff Miracola‘.

Each month, I will create a short video with a handy tip to help you create magnificent art.

My art tip this month is ‘How to restore paint-hardened brushes’. We artists are a distracted bunch. It’s easy for us to forget to clean our brushes, sometimes leaving paint sit for days at a time until the paint has become so hard that we’ve destroyed the brush. But Is that brush truly ruined? In this video I’ll show you how to restore your brush to useable condition.
