Studio Tools and Tips
Oftentimes when my paintings are drying, they collect dust, hairs and schmutz that I need to remove before varnishing. If the paint layer is cured sufficiently, I use a foam brush and lightly brush over the painting to remove it. I wonder if a tack cloth can be used, or will that leave residue on the paint surface?
What is the recommended way of removing inevitable dust from an oil painting?

EditDeleteModerator AnswerA cheap Hake brush with goat hair should work fine....or you can splurge and get a badger hair brush. Also there are some useful tips on how to store paintings to prevent buildup of dust in our "Storage, Exhibition, and Handling" document which you can find under the Resources section.
