HV’Art Additives developed to enable decorative finishes to perform the widest possible range of durability requirements. GLOSS LEVEL & COLOUR: N/A, determined by the coating the additive is used with.   HV160: AREA OF USE: HV160 is to be added to the final coat of a surface finish, to further increase the chemical and mechanical resistance of the coating. It is not advised to add to any prior coats, as this can impede best inter-coat adhesion. When added at a concentration of 0.5-1% it considerably improves hardness, abrasion resistance, resistance to aggressive household chemicals, and blocking resistance against tannins or bleed from the substrate. DOSAGE: 5% by volume of the coating material, after pre-thinning (see below) THINNING: Dilute 1 part HV160 with 5 parts water immediately before addition to the chosen coating. APPLICATION: The coating mixture containing additive should be used immediately after preparation and used within 12hrs. VOC Content: 40 g/ltr (almost zero effect on the coating mixture overall VOC due to small dosage used)   HV190: AREA OF USE: HV190 can be used to achieve adhesion directly to glass for purposes of Decorative Splashbacks, room divider panels, etc. It can also be used to double-crosslink coatings already blended with HV160, to achieve optimum possible durability results. DOSAGE: 6% by volume of base material, after pre-thinning (see below) THINNING: Dilute 1 part HV190 with 1 part water immediately before use. APPLICATION: The coating mixture containing additive should be used immediately after preparation and used within 12hrs.   DOUBLE CROSS-LINKING: In the case of using both additives, they shall be added one after the other following the above order, slowly and under constant stirring. VOC Content: 106 g/ltr (almost zero effect on the coating mixture overall VOC due to small dosage used)

How-To Brush Care Guide

Prepare your brushes for their first use - read below.

Most of our large and fine hair brushes are hand-set and made with different hairs that are tapped in a small copper cylinder before being glued into the ferrule. This is why some of the hairs are not properly affixed to the ferrule, so the brush will shed some hair the first few times you will use it.

Thick hair: examples are; badger, hog (china bristle), horse hair

Fine hair: examples are sable; squirrel, goat, skunk (fine, thin short hair)

Synthetic Fiber: examples are; taklon, samina, bordeaux, synthetic bristle


To minimize brush shedding, you should:

  1. Wash the brush thoroughly with a mild dish soap in warm water and massage the hair to comb out the loose bristles. Rinse until there is no soap residue left in the brush.
  2. Ring the brush out by rolling it between your hands as if you were trying to make a fire with a stick to fluff out the brush.
  3. Let dry by hanging the brushes or lay it down at the edge of a table (a hog bristle will have a strong odor due to the bone glue used to attach the bristles. This will go away after a few washings.)

Repeat this process a few more times.

All acrylic glazes contain some sort of ammonia which attacks the structure of the natural hair. Therefore, brush maintenance and thorough repetitive cleaning as described in step 1, 2, & 3 is imperative to protect and extend the life of your brush.

Applying a few drops of ‘leave in’ conditioner is also a good idea if you’re not going to be using your brush for some time.


Dried Paint: If some acrylic glaze becomes hardened on the brush, start by removing the heaviest part with denatured alcohol then rinse with water and coat the hairs with Murphy’s Oil Soap and leave for several hours. Apply the steps again from 1, 2, & 3 so the paint will brush out easily and leave your brush as good as new. Be careful as soap left too long in the natural hair will deteriorate the flexibility of the hair.


Proper cleaning procedure

for oil/water and large or small brushes:

  Oil Medium Water Medium
Large Brushes Prep brushes by thinning in two or more baths of spirits or until a rag runs free of paint. Wash brush with warm water and a lathering soap. Shake out excess water, quickly form brush shape, and then allow to dry upside down. Rinse thoroughly with warm water. Clean with a tiny bit of lathering soap and rinse until completely clean. Shake out excess water, quickly form brush shape, and then allow to dry.
Small Brushes Prep brushes by thinning in two or more baths of spirits or until a rag runs free of paint. Apply a generous portion of Lard to the tip of the brush and store. To reuse brush, completely thin with spirits. Clean each small brush very carefully and gently with a tiny bit of lathering soap. Shake out excess water, quickly form brush shape, and then allow to dry . To reshape a brush, dip it in Gum Arabic.
