There plenty of ways to spend money on art. This post is all about saving money and spending it on paint. We need the extra accessories and many do purchase them like Fig.1 above right. This is an upcycling project.
This post shows the twelve steps on the assembly of a simple brush holder.
Step 1: Find an empty wide bottom plastic container. Fig.2 shows the container below is from Westpack Material All Purpose Joint Compound. One gallon plastic buckets can be purchased at hardware stores for about $3 each. The choice is white, black and sometimes blue. Small container can also be purchased with lids.
