You too?

Ok - hands up... who else does this?

I 'm an absolute terror for not washing my brushes, foam applicator pads.... or stamps.

I always mean to, but i just get so carried away with what i'm doing that before I know it, everything's dry and crusty and only fit for the bin. I must spend a fortune buying more every couple of weeks. Thank God they're not dear - I ususally only buy cheapo Wilkos/The Works jobbies... but even so, it all adds up. Stamps are not so bad - you can still get paint/ink off even after it's dried, even brushes can occasionally be saved, but those foam things - nah! You let that dry and you've had it.... when I try to get it off i always end up pulling chunks out of the foam - why can't I just trot to the bathroom and wash it off at the time? I suppose it's because I get on a roll.. ususally by the time the paint pots come out on a project, i'm well stuck in - heaven knows i need no distractions - by the time I've gone and washed them off, partially dried them, placed them across the towel I use (if i do remember to wash them) the moment's passed and I've lost momentum.

Please tell me i'm not alone here - am I the only sloppy scrapper on the planet?

youa re nto alone... i figure on a jam jar big one - like form pasta suace thats taller than the brushes - i put washing up liquid in it and just shove the bruishes into it - screw the lid back on so i get to wash them later...

oh yes that is me all right!

I buy the hummungous car sponges now from Wilkos for 69p or some such daft price and just pull little chunks off to throw away.

I definitely live in a disposable world!
