If turpentine soaking won't do it after a week, buy a new brush. Aw, just buy a new brush so you can get to the job and finish it before the game comes on.

Hardened oil base paint will need to be soaked in turpentine.

Have you also forgotten how to pick an appropriate category to post your "question" in? WTF does this have to do with cars & transportation?

Paint remover will clean it but it’s probably not worth the effort.

new brushes are often best way forward though if we want to sue it for something like a fence paint where surface finish is not important w can try several methods. eg tap hard paint with hammer to make much of it flake off. wire brusk going in direction away from handle and along hair line direction. snack airs of brush in paint stripper. wash out with deteregent and fresh water and dry. cleaned quiet a few old brushed this way but only when surface I need to paint was not an issue . her in mind w can get loose hairs too. so spend more time and effort trying to get a decent finish that it simply isn't worth. doing . bottom line =new brush is best .

Take the brush and place it in a bag, a trash bag. It will cost you more to clean it than to buy a new one.

Easy, go buy a new one. Even if possible, time involved will far exceed the cost of a new brush. Not to mention the cost of chemical to dissolve the paint.
