Fast Tip: Dry Your Paint Brush
Follow these fast tips to dry your brush before using it to paint.
Water: If you use a brush that's just been cleaned with water, blow it dry with a hair dryer. Any residual water in the bristles will dilute the paint on the brush, causing it to run down the handle when you're painting.
Mineral Turpentine: If you have just cleaned your bush with mineral turpentine, dry the bristles as well as you can with paper towels before starting to paint. This will prevent paint from running down the handle.
