Help Save a Brush
Applied some shellac. Didnt have alcohol to clean the brush. Figured: " Alcohol cleans uncured epoxy and so does vinegar, ergo vinegar must clean shellac!"
Wrongo. The instant the vinegar hit the brush it turned stiff as a board. Tried mineral spirits. No luck.
I have turps, kero and gasoline on hand. Any suggestions for repairing this (not super expensive, but not cheap either) brush?
This new ship here is fitted according to the reported increase of knowledge among mankind. Namely, she is cumbered end to end with bells and trumpets and clocks and wires. It has been told to me she can call voices out of the air or the waters to con the ship while her crew sleep. But sleep though lightly. It has not yet been told to me that the sea has ceased to be the sea.--Rudyard Kipling
