Your Neef brushes, well maintained will give satisfaction for many years. So buy the best brushes you can afford for your purpose and wash carefully ensuring that all paint is removed from the hair, particularly around the ferrule. Store safely until the next painting session. Kerosene is kinder to your brush than turpentine as a cleaner after oil painting. It keeps your brush moist where as your brushes tend to become brittle when cleaning with mineral turps. Form the brush into shape using Vaseline after cleaning.
