Paint Piranha

Paint Piranha Works On All Types of Paint!

The Paint Piranha was the NUMBER ONE Deal on WHNT’s Deal or Dud

According to WHNT’s website, The “Top Deal of 2013” comes from a local inventor. Richard Junkin had a painting business that suffered greatly when the economy crunched in 2007 and into 2008. Literally, he prayed to God for help and inspiration. He says that prayer was answered. The images of the jaws for the Paint Piranha came to mind immediately. The Paint Piranha is a device that removes paint from paint brushes. There is a small version for artists and a larger version for commercial painters. At last report, Richard Junkin had 45,000 Paint Piranahas headed to big box stores for test markets across the country.

Here’s the excerpt from the show.

Directions for Use

Art Brush CleanerWhen using the Paint Piranha on dried out brushes you must always use water on latex and solvents on oil based paints.
Pour a small amount of cleaner into a container normally used when cleaning paint brushes. How long a brush has been dried will determine how long it will take for the paint to detach from the bristles.
Once the paint looks like its lose or breaking up, hold your brush over the container with one hand and then hold the Piranha over the container with your other hand.
Place the teeth of the Paint Piranha as close to the crown of the brush.
Easily squeeze the handle of the paint Piranha and pull it through the brush.
If it feels like you have snagged or it feels difficult to pull the Paint Piranha threw the bristles of the brush STOP and place the brush back into the cleaner to allow it to continue to soften. Repeat this process until clean.
