Brush sealers are a type of paint that you can use to protect your brush from moisture and contaminants. They help keep the bristles soft, supple, and ready for an artist’s next stroke. But what makes them different from regular paint? Brush sealers dry clear, so they don’t change the look or feel of a painting. And because they’re made with acrylic polymer resins, they create a surface that is both water-resistant and durable. In other words, these paints will stand up to whatever abuse you throw at them! It’s important to note that brush sealers contain no solvents or thinners – just polymers to produce their water-resistant finish. This means there is little risk for skin irritation.
How to apply brush sealer
Brush sealers are usually water-based (so they don’t harm your brushes), but they do require some basic preparation before you start working with them. They should be applied in thin coats, and to achieve this, you need to ensure that the paint is mixed well. Here’s how:
1. Shake the bottle well
2. Place a small amount of paint on a palette and mix with a palette knife to blend the pigments thoroughly. Mixing in this way ensures that there will be no lumps or clumps in your brush sealer when you apply it to your artwork.
3. To avoid bubbles, work the brush sealer in a sweeping motion to get rid of lumps and bumps.
4. Apply thin coats and allow each coat to dry before applying the next. If your brush sealer starts to become thick, add a drop or two of water and mix well until you have the right consistency for application. Make sure that it has an even consistency throughout.
You can thin the brush sealer with water to make it easier to apply, but remember that once you’ve thinned it, you cannot make it thicker. Sealers are generally considered flat in terms of sheen.
