This is a handy item and with the easel it helps to keep me organized!
I love that it has a wet and dry side. There is also a scrub area at the bitty of the water side
So much easier to keep brushes clean whilst painting.
Lot easier than getting up to constantly rinse off my brushes. Ribbed plastic takes off any paint on brush.
So, I am only a hobby painter. I have always used a cup, jar, bowl, etc. to clean my brushes. I saw my sister using something like this and figured she was just being hoity toity. Well, I decided to go ahead and give this a try. I didn't want anything fancy because if it wasn't worth the purchase, I didn't want to be out the money. All that being said, I guess I am hoity toity now. This is amazing! ;-) It actually gets the brushes clean and prolongs the life of the brushes. So I am very happy with this purchase.
Love this little water bucket. Has all kinds of features to love: the holes for brushes, the brush "rests" on one side and the ribbed bottom on the other side for getting paint out of your brushes. Holds plenty of water for a painting session without having to change water. The top fits well and does keep the cats from doing their own watercolors when I'm not in the craft room It's a good idea to fill each well separately, so you have a dirty side and clean side while painting.
