DIY: Marble Glass Brush Cleaner Tank -Brush Saving Tips for Artists

Most recently while watching an artist paint on youtube.

I noticed he had a very unique new type of brush tank that he used to clean his art brushes. Ok, (it may not have been new on the market), it was just new to me. Something I hadn’t seen before; I thought was cool.

After giving much thought to ways I could create my own at home, I finally came up with a DIY: Brush Tank Cleaner utilizing Old Glass Marbles.

This brush tank is made very simply.   Gather up a glass, plastic jar, or container.  Marbles, and or glass tiles. I recommend the glass have beveled edges.

All you do is add the marbles or glass jar about 1/2 to 3/4 of the way up, and fill with water.

While painting, it’s always a good idea to have two jars; one filled with mild soap and water (to clean off the majority of paint), and, the other jar is than filled with clean clear water, and your choice of glass or marbles.

Hope you find this tutorial useful.
