NOTE: Always shake before you use .
Each time you paint replace the WSO. I use fresh WSO each time I paint. You could get 1-3 paintings out of each use, but I always want to use clean WSO and this helps keep your brushes cleaner. This is very cheap and non toxic way to paint. You can use this cleaner to also clean your palette. To thin your paint use Amazing Clear. We are also have a new non toxic clear medium for folks who want to be 100% non toxic. You can buy that here:Brandon Thomas NTO medium (brandonthomasartsupply.com)
**Tip *** before you clean the brushes in WSO wipe the brush off on a paper towel to remove even more paint add some soft scrub without the bleach on a paper towel, and then wipe brush through that. This will remove most the paint and allow the WSO to clean the brush more thoroughly.
*** Tip**** You can use regular skin cream (cold cream) that has mineral oil after cleaning your brushes to condition them even more***
