Yes, a few months ago. Hey, anything that you can fit brushes in that is tough & compact will do ; )
My complaint about most brush holders with lots of holes is that not all my brushes fit into em. As you can see, I have lots of brushes & need spaces to fit em all, which is why I use the ice tube tray, mentioned on another group by a fp. It fits the bill fine for me!
Another great color coded brush holder I used was the snaz petal sponge! Lots of brushes fit in the slots between them! I made a brush holder out of a daisey shaped sponge (shown in my Jan FP Jam album) using a knife pushed up from the bottom to make the slots. That way you could create your own sponge brush holder to fit all sizes of your brushes. Just remember the sponge is light and could use a wooden or several layers of cardboard cool glued to the bottom of it for stability.
The tube tray is best for me because I slam the brushes in their slots quickly and it hasnt fallen over or lost a brush (I do that very well, which is why I buy those tubes of brushes to replace the lost ones;)
All the best,
Susan

......the thing that really surprised me was that they had been told that brushes should be dried with the bristles down! So all her brushes was bend more or less out of shape. I'm thinking about asking the school if they want another teacher for facepainting ;-)


It's true, brushes should be hung upsidedown, with the bristles down to dry. The bristles should hang high in the air and not touch anything. The reason they should be dried this way is so that the water drips down and away from the feral. If the feral stays wet the glue can be affected and the bristles will start to come out in time.

The brushes should never be left in water with the bristles down.....it will cause the heads to bend.

That's all I know, or think that I know.

Agree that is is good to HANG them upside down. But they was told to have them STAND on the tip.

hey there Metina,
I just ordered teh 'brush pallet' at KitchenCollection.com for $3.99 each.

http://www.kitchencollection.com/Temp_Products.cfm?sku=01050784&RankThis=Y&Searched=%20The%20Ice%20Tubes%20Tray&

considering the negative reviews for the product - evidently getting the ice out is near impossible - I may be smart to order while supplies last...
Wink

Best,
Avigail
