Over the years I have accumulated a lot of painting brushes. Dagger, angle, rake, mop, spotter, fan you name it and I've got it. After a while you just need to get rid of some because they are spoiled and impossible to use. Liner brush are hard to maintain. That's why you use brush cleaner when you washed the brush so that all the stained will be removed. It helps to maintain the life span of the brush. Folk Art painting relies a lot on the shape of the brush.

However as an artist I have become attached to these tools that have helped me paint many beautiful things. I wonder whether there are ways to recycle them into something useful...
