      Eric,

      You're right - should be cautious. There are potentially a lot of different types of brushes it seems. We've not had a problem.

      Merry Christmas All...

      Not all brushes are the same. Synthetic brushes might not like acetone at all. Even natural bristles might be more easily cleaned with hot water and a paintbrush comb from the hardware store (that is all I needed with my used synthhetic bristle processor), but that won't get all the way down to the base of the bristle.
      New brushes, new krene, new lamps--these things can only be an improvement. And while it may be expensive, it will be cheaper in the long run than remaking plate after plate--that really runs into money.
