To split the ends of this brush, first, singe the ends of the bristles using a pan over a hot plate. Hold the brush with its bristles touching the pan surface. After singeing, dip the ends of the bristles in water then run it firmly over a dragon skin sanding sheet or any similar sanding sheet. This will help soften the bristles. Finally, wash the brush with soap and water, then rinse thoroughly. Make sure to dry the brush before storing it. Hang the brush to dry or place it on a solid surface with the bristles hanging over the edge of the surface.
Please note: Use gloves when rubbing the brush along the sanding sheet and singeing the tool.
