More Ice

After a couple days away from the subject, more ice.

In March 2010 I wrote about finding paint brushes which had been sitting in white spirit in the garage all winter, and said "It is a lesson I hope to learn though - clean up before it starts snowing!"

Like most "I will know better next time" events, the only thing that taught me was to recognise I had got it wrong again when I emptied a lump of ice out of a 10 litre bucket.

I can be happy in the knowledge that this year it was only one brush - that is two less that two years ago, a statistic not improved by being one more than last year.

I also notice that the blog post in March 2010 I referred to was posted the day that Leon and Sue visited. Time flies, eh...



  1. Have you ever tried wrapping
    your brush in plastic film
    if you're in a hurry and don't
    have time to clean them right
    away? We do this frequently
    if we're going to continue on
    with the same paint the next
    day. Works well with rollers
    too. Both will remain ready
    for use for several days

  2. It was at the bottom, Simon... and the ice doesn't look very clear!

    Buy a new one!

  3. Sheila - much too organised for me" It assumes I will be coming back to the painting the same year. Not my strong point, as evisenced by brushes "rinsing" over winter.
