I've bought some small tins of enamel (the kind you used to be able to get for model kits) for a project.

Anyway, I've got some isopropyl alcohol, will that be of any use for cleaning my brushes after I'm done? I've also got some WD40 about.

When I used to use enamels (this is like, 20 years ago) i used turpentine, though it's very hard on brushes.

I'm pretty sure isopropyl should work fine - my brother uses it for cleaning brushes after doing varnish work.
