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 post shows the five steps on the assembly of a brush holder. 

Step 1: Fig.2 below shows that this is the fit you want. The bottom layer slightly higher to catch the bottom of the brush.
Step 2: Fig.3 shows to take the bucket and add some DAP Kwik Seal Silicone Caulking at the bottom edges of the bucket.
