Handy jars for cleaning oil brushes and storing solvent.

Here are practical pots for cleaning brushes, the Silicoil. In fact, the jar is made of glass and inside is a serpentine metal tube. The advantage of this pot is that the serpentine helps you to clean the bristles of the brush more delicately and allows you to dislodge the pigments without having to press your brushes into the bottom of the pot.

Also, after a few hours, the suspended pigments will settle to the bottom of the jar and when you go to clean brushes again, the pigments will not mix back into your cleaning solution, either. your solvent or your ecological cleaner for oil paint, or your water for acrylic paint. At least, the manufacturer also offers it for acrylic, you decide if it is relevant!

There are also several models available of stainless steel pots designed to make brush cleaning easier. They are airtight and close with clips on the side to ensure the lid does not come off easily. Ideal if you have to transport the pot for an outdoor painting session for example. The pot contains a perforated container inside which allows the pigments to settle in the bottom of the pot and thus prevent the pigments from mixing again during your next brush cleaning. Your cleaning solution is thus "cleaner", at least clearer.
