How to clean my brushes used for MIG Enamel washes properly?

Good day everyone,

For the first time in my entire modeling life I have used gloss varnish and MIG Enamel wash.
To bring some detail out on the paint job of the Jerry can.
But, I don’t know exactly how to clean my brushes properly when this product is used.
I’m not using any enamel paints, except for the washes now.

Please help me to take proper care for my brushes.

What are mineral spirits?

In fact, you can buy enamel thinners from literally a hundred different suppliers. There is no mystery to it.

Glad to hear about your modeling project! To clean your brushes after using gloss varnish and MIG Enamel wash, follow these steps:

  1. Wipe excess paint off with a paper towel.
  2. Rinse brushes in a jar of mineral spirits or odorless thinner.
  3. Gently swirl brushes to remove remaining paint.
  4. Repeat until brushes are clean.
  5. Wash brushes with mild soap and water.
  6. Reshape bristles and let them air dry.

Hope this helps! Happy modeling!
