Perfect brush wasger
By cape ma
Easy to use, carry, and holds enough cleaner to use over and over. Saw these in my art class and decided I must have one. Got it and am thrilled. If it gets turned upside down in my art bag, it doesn't leak. Pretty amazing if you ask me. Will buy another as a gift for my artist friend.

Good product but expensive.
Holbein Metal Brush Washer doesn't leak!
from Tallmadge, OH
So many other metal brush washers tend to leak. This one is solid and hasn't leaked yet!

Holbien metal brush washers
from Charlotte , NC
I've had the small washer for years and it is prefect for travel use, and I'll eventually buy the largest one for studio use.These bucketd should be used for spirits, turpentine or mineral, not water; think about it, fine water colour brushes being rubbed over and over against the grated metal insert? How long do you think a #14 Series 7 or Raphael Sable brush would keep their expensive tips intact with such treatment?Ideal for less expensive oil brushes, bristle or sable, these cans are top quality and won't leak or outgas flammable fluids when sealed and locked downmy even when laid on their side.Carry your water in plastic jugs or pales, the don't rust

Rusting after every use
By Malcolm Zachariah
from Oklahoma City, OK
I bought a small one and used it for my watercolors and ink paintings. Turns out you shouldn't leave the water in because mine is rusting quite profusely, to the point that when I pour out the paint water, there is a residue of rust at the bottom of the pan. I am very disappointed since I expected quality to match the high price. Now I'm just turning to regular glass jars. Cheaper and more durable.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Just what I wanted & needed

Needed something to seal tight & preserve my brush cleaner.

Watercolor brushes are unique and costly. Cleaning such instruments is wary important for purity of pigments used on paper. I use distiled water for my watercolors. Holbein Brush Washer is perfect tool for use with distiled water, it can be hermeticaly closed and water is saved for later use.

Great yet simple idea!
By Forever Artistic
from Islip, NY
The thing about this that works so wonderfully is that there is a grate about halfway down that enables you to rake and clean your brush rather than push your brush into the bottom of a jar or coffee can. This cleaner also enables you to save more solvent with a neatly designed cover and clamp sealing mechanism that appears to close air tight. I've had no spills as of yet and have to say that this is indeed a clever little product. I purchased the Large Metal Brush Washer and have found that size in a product like this is very useful. Overall I love this cleaner, however it is on the pricey side.
