Made from strong synthetic hairs, these brushes created by Matthew Palmer and the SAA, are perfect for all types of lifting out, enabling you to create stunning, subtle and sparkling highlights.

"For many years I have painted highlights by lifting them out, first using this technique for lifting subtle highlights out of a flower petal. This technique has been with me for many years and using the right brush is crucial. it's hard to find a good one, so I have designed the perfect brush for the job. This is an essential tool for all watercolour artists."

Question:

What is the best way to clean Lift out brushes.

Answers:

  • Posted by Anita Pounder on Thursday, 12 July 2018

    As with any brush it is important to clean thoroughly. The Matthew Palmer lift out brushes have white hair which means these can be come stained by certain colours.

    This does not affect the performance of the brushes.

    I would always recommend cleaning all artist brushes with a good artist brush cleaner, these have been formulated and developed to clean the brush thoroughly and recondition the hair without any residue (important for watercolour). They are easily available in liquid, cream or soap formulation.

    You can use the palm of your hand to agitate the brush ensuring that you get right up to the ferrule to prevent any build-up of pigment residue.

    Do not submerge the whole brushes in water only submerge the hair and or ferrule not the handle.

    Clean and rinse and dry flat.
