Review: the Dryâ€™n Shape system by Sigma (dries and shapes brushes in 4-6 hours)
10 Jul 2011
I mentioned that something that is ‘revolutionary’ and ‘patent pending’ just screams my name. Hihi! It just sounds so intriguing. 😀 Also, I hate waiting for my brushes to dry and I think the Dryâ€™n Shape will come in handy for me when I travel. I didn’t have it during my recent Europe trip, but I’m happy to announce that I own it now! Below are my thoughts.
The Dry’n Shape System is basically a piece of cloth that looks a lot like a normal brush roll. It’s not though! There are 12 slots with a band that goes around each handle and each bristle section. It is said to not only completely dry your brushes in a fraction of the time, but also reshape them to their original form. I describe the product in more detail here.
I cleaned my brushes with Dawn dish washing liquid and a little bit of olive oil. Left, you see my disgusting brushes, on the picture on the right they are clean. 😀 After I was done, I carefully pressed the bristles to remove excess water. Then I put the damp brushes into the Dry’n Shape.
Shhhhhh…drying brushes! 😉
The next morning (I did this late at night before bed), the brushes were completely dry. This was about 6 hours later. The brushes look as good a new with the bristles in their original form.
Do I recommend it?
Yes! Especially if you have expensive brushes or if you’re just extremely fond of your brushes like me. 😉 The Dry’n Shape will quickly dry your brushes and most importantly (for me at least), it will keep your brushes look as new. It’s a neat thing to have. Worth the money, in my opinion!
