Not worth the money
By Gator Artist
Comments about Mona Lisa Brush Shaper:
I was excited about getting this and hearing all the positive reviews. However, I couldn't tell much difference in my brushes before and after using it. In fact, I get better results using my Master's cleaner to shape them after cleaning. I actually thought I was doing something wrong so I re-read the directions. Alas, it simply did not work for me. Perhaps it would work on brushes that were in really bad shape.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Sticky but sweet
If you like Mona Lisa brush shaper, Dick Blick has the best deal for it. I checked other vendors before buying. The liquid is thin and won't rescue a brush that's been abused. However, it does help new or "middle-aged" brushes hold their shape. I believe using it in combination with conditioning soaps (ML Pink Soap or Master's Cleaner) will make my new brushes keep their spring.

I use this to condition my acrylic brushes. I leave it in the bristles so they will maintain a chiseled edge.

Nothing else comes close.
from Charleston, SC
If you own mongoose brushes or sables that have lost their way, this product is indispensable. For hog bristles, you can just roll the wet brushes in newspaper or old phone book paper and fold over to get a sharp edge, but for anything else, this mona lisa shaper has no equal. I let my brushes dry completely before using because I don't want this stuff embedded deep within the hairs, then I dip them in this solution, shape the hairs with my fingers, and hang upside down for a few hours or overnight. You get an unbelievably sharp edge and to remove it, just before painting I usually soak a few seconds in turps and squeeze it out. This won't replace the lost spring in your brushes (nothing will,) but will help increase the effective life of all your brushes, and brushes you thought were gonners may still prove useful.
I love it!

Mona Lisa brush shaper
from Blackstone, Va.
I am an art instructor who supplies all brushes so the need to keep my brushes in tip top shape is very important. The Mona Lisa brush shaper is the best thing that I have ever come across. I have thrown many a brush away because the shapes were ruined. This product has saved me a lot of money in brushes. If this ever goes off the market, I will be hurting. Nancye
