How should I work with a mop brush without paint drying on it

I sometimes use a mop brush to 'soften' details. Only a tiny amount gets on the brush so it can dry relatively quickly. If I go ahead and clean the brush then it's too wet to use later in the painting. Has anyone else run into this issue, and how do you work around it?


  • That might explain why I'm having trouble finding more info! Thing is, I've had lots of success using the large mop with oil, it just requires that I clean the brush after 10-20 minutes which doesn't give much leeway.

    I've seem tutorials (example) where people use this brush for acrylics, but that seems like it would be even more of a problem.
