How to Clean Glitter Tattoo Brushes

Post by seeshearts on Mon Jul 16, 2012 5:58 pm

Wow! Did I learn a lot doing my first glitter tatts. I used way too much glue and it stuck to the brush along with the lots of glitter. What's the best way to clean your brushes? I love you

I run the bristles over an alcohol wipe until the brush is soft and pliable again.

I'll try to run a quick video later, if I get the time.

I swish mine in baby oil, seems to work great. No glue left. Wash with ivory after lay to dry.

Keep alcohol with you during the events in case you get glue in your brushes. Letting the glue dry completely will prevent it from happening. I just bring extra brushes so I don't have to mess with them if something happens. After the event I use warm water with soap and let them air dry.
