I was a chemistry student. After working in industry for a while, I struggle with myself for a really long time. I try to get my mind straight and I finally realized that I want to create in terms of painting and drawing. Although I know that I start it late, I want to keep moving forward. Even just a little bit everyday.
Interests
So the idea is not to use mineral spirits to clean brushes after oil painting. The question is how to use water to clean oil paint.
And I thought the makeup cleansing oil if right for the job. So I made some by myself. I mixed sunflower oil (bought in local grocery store) and Polysorbate 20 together.

The ratio is between 9(oil):1~8(oil):2.
So I tested it with some dirty brushes. I pour a small amount of cleansing oil into a small disposal plastic cup. Put all brushes in the cup and first let the oil dissolve paint. And then add a little water to fully emulsify it. You can't wash the brush directly using water but have to emulsify it first. After that you can wash the brush under running water and followed by regular soap and water if necessary.
It worked! And if I rub the brush with my finger during the first step it cleaned even better.
8 oz 
Polysorbate 20 cost $20
53 oz sunflower oil cost $7
This might sounds expensive but you only need a little to clean all brushes and 60+ oz would last forever. And the most important thing is that it is safe. ^_^.
I hope this would help~

Thanks.

This practice is for exploring and adjusting some brushes. I try to find more brushes that I can use in the software. I was watching the movie <Spectral> when I drew this and I saw him as general again~O(∩_∩)O. By the way, the idea/concept in <Spectral> is really interesting. Among all those time travel and space travel movie setting, this Bose-Einstein condensate feels fresh to me.
