Painting: “Tips & Tricks”

From an article in “This Old House”  Secrets of a Perfect Paint Job  (http://www.thisoldhouse.com/toh/article/0,,1566019-7,00.html)

Keeping your grip
The pros call a worn-out brush a “club,” which is about as precise as it sounds. “If your brush is worn-out, or flared, it isn’t any good,” says Patrick Dallaire of August West and Company in Portland, Oregon. When pros clean their brushes, they pat them dry, spin out excess moisture by rubbing the handle between their palms, then put them back in their original packaging to maintain their shape. Says Dallaire:?”If you’re maintaining your grip—what we call a painter’s toolbox—you’re ahead of the game.”
