Death of a paint brush.
This could have had a better ending.

Grief is a hard thing to deal with, attacking others is only a defense mechanism.
When you want to talk about it, I will be here...

Just stating the facts.
This brush was abused, neglected, humiliated and then came the epoxy bath

It's "swung", not "swinged".

I have recovered all of my brushes as well as my pumps after laying out ArmorSeal 1000 2 part epoxy with the handy dandy Reducer #5...

Of course a thorough cleaning is necessary before the material begins to cook.

and yours?

swinged (archaic english) as in beat up

I brushed a small metal furniture job with SW macropoxy 646. Sadly, the brush didn't make

Hilarious

Wise, would you find relief if I told it was one of those blue plastic handle generic brushes from SW?

I'd be be dammed if I dip one of my woosters in epoxy

Funny post George.

That is serious neglect to leave wrapped in paint for extensive periods.
If I run epoxy it is brush that I plan on tossing. To much effort to clean a brush after that.

My oldest purdy, non specialty brush, is about 24-30 months old. I think I'll start writing a date on my new ones.
