Whenever I mix colors, there is an orangey color that doesn't get mixed in. It appears to come from my brush. Why and what can I do to prevent it?


  • Sounds like a very thorough brush cleaning is on order.  Paint tends to accumulate in the heel of the brush and the paint will come out when mixing.  If it is not mixing in, it is likely dried bits of paint.  

    Clean thoroughly with Gamsol, then use a fine wire brush to clean between the bristles of your brush.  Then follow up with soap and water.  The key though is to get between the bristles up near the heel.
