Mona Lisa Power Wash

Post by JennyNixe on Thu Sep 19, 2013 2:58 am

If you ever took art in school, you're probably familiar with Mona Lisa's signature product, Pink Soap. Just the smell takes me back to Mrs. Peterson's room at Fairview Elementary School. Most of the time, Pink Soap works fine for my brushes, but many of my favorites have been seeming kind of worn out lately, losing their tips and splitting out. This is probably because I am not the greatest about washing my brushes after a gig.

Anyway, Power Wash was advertised as a way to get dried paint out of synthetic brushes. I decided to give it a try on my worn brushes before replacing them. I thought it was a soap-like product, but it's much thinner. There are no instructions on the bottle, so I put a few drops in my palm and scrubbed the brush around. I was shocked by how much paint came out, even from my "clean" brushes! Bristles that I thought were permanently discolored came out looking brand new, even the white ones. Some of the dirtier brushes took a couple of scrubs, but after rinsing and shaping, all my brushes work so much better. The only complaint I have is because it's so thin, I use quite a bit for each brush. There could be a more efficient way to use it, though.

If you're looking for a way to refresh and rehabilitate your brushes, give Power Wash a try. It runs about $13 for an 8 ounce bottle.

Thank you, JennyNixe! Smile I was in the mood for some bling one evening, so started painting and that's what came out of my mind and onto my face. Love me some Liquid Bling...
