    Our Artist in Residence answers your questions
    Q: Pat asks: "Do you clean your blending brushes?"
    A: I have several different sets of blending brushes, each 'dedicated' to its own color or color family. Really the only time I clean them is when I've used a different type of ink (like an Oxide) or a different medium (pastels or acrylic paint). To clean, I just run them under warm water, work in a tiny drop of dish soap, then rinse them well and shake out the water.
