    • Cut off excess frayed bristles (optional).

    • There may be a few fraying bristles left. These are harmless and will cling to the brush shape when dipped in paint.

    • If preferred, you may use a nail clipper to cut these hairs off.

结论

Your brushes should now be usable again. Unfortunately this cannot be done too many times because the turpentine will start to damage the bristles, so make sure to regularly wash your brushes.
