Zest-it® Artists Absorbmant Mat for Brush Care
When using big brushes the problem is usually drying them, if you use kitchen towel it's just a soggy mess, an old tee-shirt just gets sodden, so what do you do?
Our Absorbant Mat measure 40 cm x 48 cm (16" x 19") and will soak-up and hold about 1 Litre of fluid, they can be re-used and are made from 75% recycled material.
Large brushes can be easily dried on these mats. Wash the brush in the normal way, squeeze most of the fluid out of the brush by pressing to the side of the container, then dry the bristles across the mat shaping the brush at the same time.
Reuse the Mat
Cut the mat into four if you use smaller brushes and don't want to wet the whole mat per painting session. The mat holds the fluid, so very little evaporates into your work space. Squeeze most of the fluid out of the mat back into your brush washing container, then hang the mat outside to dry, reuse.
Try to use the mat for drying the brush, not for cleaning the paint/wax off the brush that will spoil its' absorbant qualities.
