It has been wildly popular. But them I wanted to make some New ideas too this the Meeting of the Halloween Board . The Moon is Cosplaying Jack the Pumpkin King and the 3 sisters are Cosplaying the Sanderson Sisters. All costumes were  handmade because you know they are makers.

The Art Sherpa Brush Spa Soap

The Art Sherpa's #1 recommendation to end

“brush brutality” 

Clean Your Brushes!

Your paint brushes are an expensive investment that you will want to know how to protect and keep for years. This might surprise you to know that the future of each brush is sealed at the sink after each painting session. That  leftover paint MUST ALL come out. The acrylic polymer emulsion and pigments get pushed into your bristles and the ferrules. When you have dried paint hiding in the ferrule, it can build up until it “blows out” the shape of your brush, causing splitting and stray hairs.  This will give you a great cloud or scumble brush, but will ruin your favorite brushes shape and edge. 

Cinnamon How Do I Clean My Brushes?

This is a great question

soap 4.jpg

The Art Sherpa™ spent years finding the most powerful, natural ingredients, to remove that brush destroying paint. She consulted:


  • acrylic paint makers and chemists

  •  off the grid super mom bloggers

  • specialty oil importers

  • brush makers

  • natural soap makers all over the globe. 


She  searched high and low for the ingredients that would make a nontoxic, human friendly brush soap. Your Art Sherpa was looking for very specific results. She knew those Taklon filaments and blends needed a special TLC. If your brush is a magic wand then this soap is the fountain of youth you need. Cinnamon Cooney called this quest for a soap “The Journey to a Better Bubble.”  The Art Sherpa Brush Soap is here and is unlike anything you have ever tried.


  • The magic suds. 

  • The bubble blaster. 

  • The Art Sherpa Brush Spa.


The Art Sherpa Brush Spa Soap has been created for the cleaning of acrylic paint out of synthetic brushes. BUT can I use this  on oil or watercolor brushes? YES it works for them too. In fact this amazing soap may just become  your favorite for you delicate hair and bristle brushes.

How you clean your brush is just as important as what you clean it with

Art Sherpa Spa Brush Cleaning Instructions

Materials- Art Sherpa Brush Spa Soap - paper towels - Container of swishing water- Cup of hot water (not hot enough to burn your fingers)-


  • Place cleaning supplies by the sink and lay your drying towels out next to the sink’ 



  • Remove excess thick paint that is on your brush (if you have any)  on a disposable towel. 



  • Vigorously Swish the brush in a container of water. 



  • Wet Brush in warm running water and rub across the soap. Build up the suds as you use the directional stroke method. Do this Firmly, but gently. Don’t scrub or bend the filaments of the brush .



  • Take fingers and work the soap gently through the brush 



  • Rinse and Repeat step 4 



  • Now take your clean brush and stroke firmly but gently dragging across a dry white paper towel. If you see any color, go to step 8, if not go to step 9. 



  • Run warmer water over the brush, rewetting it,  go over the surface of your soap using the soft circle method. If you are using the power scrub tub with loofah, be extra careful. 



  • Take your cup of very hot, but safe for fingers, water and dip brush in for 10-20 seconds. Finger shape your brush 



  • Lay brush flat on paper towel. Come back in and hour to check the brush ( if you see any color repeat the cleaning steps) 



  • Allow brushes to dry before placing in your brush cup. 


IMG_0437.jpg

Things you need to know but may not about Brush care 


  • NEVER use solvents on synthetic filaments, it can melt the brush. 



  • DON’T use Acetone on your brush even for dry paint 



  • Don’t leave a brush sitting in water. 



  • Don’t dry a brush in any  vertical position, always lay flat. 



  • Rubbing alcohol removes dry paint and is brush safe. 



  • Certain pigments stain. Here are just a couple common ones:  phthalo blue and dioxazine purple. Staining is normal and does not hurt your brush. It is the  dry acrylic polymer emulsion that damages the brush 



  1. All hog bristle brushes must be washed before you paint with them to remove loose bristles. Small shedding of a Couple bristles is normal. A full hair storm is not. 

  2.  Never throw out ruined fluffy brushes. They make the best cloud, bush and special textures. They are a treasure. Keep lost brushes in their own jar. Give them fun new names like “ Sir Cloudinator” or “ Mr Magic Scumble”

For my free activity we'll do a flip the script of our personal narrative. Imagine taking a personality trait you don't love about yourself and finding a new more self loving way to view it.  You will be able to personalize this easy beginner step by step to improve how you feel about yourself. http://bit.ly/FreeLBCWSummit2020

Flip the Script, 

Sometimes the quirks of our nature we feel the worst about can be our greatest strengths. Often I hear people think that they are flawed in the areas and yet if you flip the script its the best parts of Them . Its all about the filter we see ourselves through. Trauma vs Nature. This exercise is about our nature not our trauma. Trauma can shape us like clay but the clay is our nature.  When we look at our personalities sometimes we will apologize for our natural traits. Choosing to see the positives about our whole authentic self can help us shape our own clay.

You will be missed Friski Kristi


By TheArtSherpa, 2019-09-09

The Art Sherpa Youtube Channel Live Stream Activities are on Hold Temporarily:Myself and the Art Sherpa Team are taking some time to grieve the loss of one of our Moderators, Dear friends and oldest Community members Friski Kristi. She was taken from us without our warning Saturday morning and we are all in shock. If knew Kristi and would like to help her family there is a crowd funder set up by her husband Chad. You can give messages condolences for her loved ones or give aid for her funeral costs through the link. http://bit.ly/FriskiKristiGoFundMe

 Her family has given us permission to share this sad news with you. Many of you knew Kristi. She was a loving goofball made of rainbows who has been with us from nearly the beginning of my journey of the Art Sherpa. She was talented, loving and extremely funny. She helped create the wonderful spirit you see today. We will be bumping lives as myself and the team need a bit of time to be in our grief as I am sure many of you do. Please put a wish for her family and friends on her canvas. If you knew Kristi please share a favorite memory of her on this post. We are putting together a tribute to share with her family so they can see how many lives she touched. When our hearts are better there will be a tribute painting we do for her.  So today I am thinking of her in her magical imagination, part of a glittery world all in blue.

June Announcement Newsletter



A note from the Team:Image result for june flowers clipart

Greetings to all our Fabulous Sherpettes!, 
Welcome to a special announcement newsletter!

In The News:
Hello and Greetings. We are happy to report we are doing well and have some exciting new projects on the horizon. Lots of new videos, projects and Patron news. See below for details for some of them. 

So wondering what else we have been doing? We had a couple of great adventures in April and May. In April we were at Arts & The Park in Hots Springs, Arkansas. What a great time we had. So good we are doing it again next year too. Then then in April we were at Pinners GA and in May, we were at Pinners MN. And we had a great time at both of those events also. We met lots of wonderful Sherpettes at each event. We may be doing some more Pinners this year, so keep your eye on our schedule.

And, we have been invited to do an event in Canada with King's Framing and Art Gallery. So keep an eye out for upcoming info on those. 

Wondering about Sherpacon?

We have moved the date of Sherpacon to a future, unknown date. But it will probably be in conjunction with Arts & The Park in Hot Springs next year. Rest assured that it will still be happening, and we are firming up dates and location. Hots springs has amazing facilities for an event like Sherpacon, And it'll be all kinds of fun. The button machine and photo booth will make a comeback. The art spinner will return too. Plus, all manner of Sherpa fun, like ATC table, maybe rock painting, and we are hoping to add some make and take crafts for sale, that well, you get to take with you, LOL and of course we hope to bring back Glamma Jamma! In an effort to ease your pocket book we are working on a way to allow tickets to have flex pay. Also we are talking to several locations to get special rates for Sherpacon Attendees 

We appreciate your patience as we continue to revamp the website. Check out the news below to see a taste of what we've been up to lately. We are continually striving to bring you a better Patron experience and make the website easier to navigate and more user friendly and finish out our last Patron campaign.

Questions and concerns can be sent to Support@theartsherpa.com. Be watching though because in the next few days we will be adding a Patron@theartsherpa.com mailbox . The Art Sherpa ATC Team
