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.

Step 4: Now place the brushes into your new inexpensive brush container. Fig.4 shows the brush bucket is ready to use.  The container is stable, inexpensive and if you have the parts on hand it is practically free. Hope you enjoy it too.

Tip: Fig.5 if the edges of the electrical ties around the red bucket are coarse and sharp, apply some silicone to these edges and let it dry and the coarseness will be gone.
