Could someone help me out here. Whenever I use my leaf & flower glaze, my brush stiffens when i go to clean it. Any suggestions to cleaning brush?
when I use the gold paint with another brush (than that which comes with the bottle) it too stiffens.
Also has anyone use leaf & flower glaze with their airbrush? Does it work better than brushing?

I assume you're talking about confectioners glaze? The tan colored stuff that smells like lacquer (because it is lacquer)?

You need to get confectioners glaze thinner to clean your brushes. Unless I need precision, I just use cheap child's paintbrushes and toss them in the trash when I'm through.

I've never heard of using it in the airbrush. Not only would it kill the airbrush, the overspray would be a nightmare!
