Do you think you could scrounge up 4 more? I understand if you can't, just thought I'd ask.

Hi, Jan. I have plenty more scrub brushes to send out if anyone wants them, just PM me your address and I'll I had been charging $2.10 to cover shipping (1.95) plus the envelope (0.15), but I forgot that Paypal takes 2.9%+0.30 per transaction, so instead of breaking even, I'm actually losing money each time I send out brushes. It's not a huge amount, but it adds up.

I'm happy to send them out and break even, so the new shipping charge is: $2.46 for US addresses. That way, I'm not losing money (not making any, either). If you already sent a payment for the original amount, it's fine, don't worry about it.

If someone wanted to write me a check and mail it for $2.10, that's just fine. PM me and I'll give you my address. Otherwise, if you pay by Paypal, it's $2.46. My paypal address is julie@thegildedcat.com

As someone asked, the brushes I have are not new. Doctor's first wash their hands with regular soap and water, then they scrub their hands with these scrub brushes. The brushes have a sponge attached to the back which has betadine (iodine) scrub in it. After they're done, I peel the sponge off, wash the plastic brush in soap and water, and let it dry. It's not "sterile," it never was, but it's clean.

I went to a local store (Lee Valley) and bought a few scrub brushes to make my own, when I went to attach them I also wanted the option to remove if needed. I ended up using hot glue - it worked a treat I already had to pop one off to reset it and it came right off. all I had to do was pull off the glue and then reset it. I haven't noticed any problems with my brushes, they all seem to be pretty happy and wow are they clean. Smile

I don't know how I did it any other way now! The brushes are clean with just a couple of passes on the sponge and the water stays so much cleaner.

Oh sheesh Julie - I dropped the ball on this! Haha (ignored the forum the week you posed this as I was at an event all weekend, and I guess missed it when I came back). So I was surprised when I got the package today!

So, so sorry - am PayPal-ing you RIGHT NOW!!!

I still love mine! I attached the brushes with silicone, got it at Lowes. I love how clean my brushes get, and I use so much less water now. I do find that I have to condition my brushes more often, but l love to play with my brushes. It is like thearpy. Very Happy

When she's not hired to do glitter tattoos, my daughter comes with me to parties and helps me set up, break down, etc. but in between, she washes my brushes for me and keeps them set out so I can grab them quickly. She's LOVING this brush basin because she said it's so much faster and easier to remove the paint. I know when I do a festival and there's 50 people in line, I can just swish my brush through the bristles once or twice and they're clean- great time-saver.

So this is probably a silly question, but when people condition their brushes, what are they using? Like a proper 'brush conditioner' from art supply stores (if there is such a thing?)?? or ordinary human-hair conditioner?? - yes, I am clueless!! Wink

Hello all,

I'm still in Florida on vacation following FABAIC. I will be back in Portland next week and can ship out the brushes then. Feel free to PM me in the mean time with your address if you haven't already. Sorry for the delay - I appreciate your patience!

Cheers,
Julie

I use both master soap and ivory soap. Sometimes I use hair gel to reshape them too. You can use the Ivory bar, just damp, then rub it into a paste kind of, not a lather, and reshape the bristles to a point, let them dry.
