Excerpt from Hints for Painters, Decorators, and Paper-Hangers
Large brushes, such as 6-0 size, should be bridled when new by winding good twine around them about one-third up the length of the bristles, and as the brush wears, this binding can be unwound. Care should be taken to use the brushes so that they will have a ﬂat wedge-shaped point, straight on the edge. This can be done by holding the brush always in one position. If brushes are turned round and round in the hand while in use, they wear round and stubby on the point ind soon become useless for fine or smooth work.
Brushes that are in use every day should be placed in water half the depth of the bristles at night, taking care that brushes containing different colors do not come in contact with one another. If they are to be laid aside for any length of time, however, they should be washed with warm water and soap after being thoroughly cleansed with turpentine, and laid away in a mo1st place.
As a general thing it is better to buy putty already made at a regular paint store, where you may depend upon its being made of good whiting and linseed oil than to make it. Putty should not be used until the work has been primed, for new paint holds the putty very firmly.
White lead is to be judged of by being well ground and possessing the mellowness given to it by age.
