Art Alternatives Round Brush Cleaning Basin. Soak, scrub, rinse and air-dry your brushes! Fine brushes are an investment and it pays to have a well-designed brush basin to keep drying paint from ruining them. The sturdy plastic basin is compartmentalized, one side for soaking, the other for washing. Angled slots hold larger brushes off the bottom while they soak, and graduated ridges in the washing chamber make proper scrubbing painless. Holes along the rim hold brushes of varying sizes, bristles up, for drying, and the lid functions as a palette. The square brush basin has a handle. Both are ideal for use with water, but safe for other solvents.
