Welcome to dickblick
The durable plastic brush basin cylinder is a great accessory to have at your side as you paint. It's also handy for transporting items to and from the classroom or studio.
The basin contains two 2-liter water buckets, a 16-compartment palette, and a handle that doubles as a brush holder.

Save money on mineral spirits
from Rio Grande, Puerto Rico
I use mineral spirits when painting in oils. With this covered basin, I can cover the remaining mineral spirits with the accompanying lid and when I return to work, pour the clean spirits in to another container after the sediment from my previous painting session has settled. I find I don't have to buy mineral spirits as often as before and the lid keeps the fumes from the spirits from invading my studio. It's also a nice size, big enough so I can use large brushes and swish them around without splashing the liquids all over the place.
An Elementary Art Teacher loves this!
By Elementary art teacher

These have totally changed painting days in my classroom. I am amazed. The kids love them. I love them. Because of the cost I only bought enough for half of my tables last year. They are at the top of my list this year. I DID NOT HAVE A SINGLE SPILL THIS YEAR with the students who used these buckets. Other students were using dog bowls, square bowls etc. - they spilled plenty. Even kindergartens are getting their own water with these now. The bucket has a large handle that makes it easy to carry. The divided inside allows two kids to share easily. They hold enough water that most won't need to get clean water in one class period. Kids love to put their brushes in the handle too. They feel like their using something a "real" artist would use. The only downside is the lid. The top portion would be perfect for liquid watercolors if the lid was airtight. It's not a big deal.
Serves It's Purpose Well
Serves its purpose well and was a good deal. The only thing I'm not sold on is that the dividers come out so water and paint can get down into the bottom of the main bucket but it doesn't ruin its purpose for me. I just have to be more mindful when I clean it.

Durable and Well designed
from Wheeling, WV
I really like this water bucket. It is much stronger than your typical recycled Cool Whip tub. I use the paint section for those special colors that are not usually on my regular palette. The two half size tubs are great for the first rinse and final rinse of brushes. I think this is a very well thought out bucket. Another reviewer commented on the top not staying on during the journey form a water source to the Plein Aire Site. I just don't fill it as full if the water source is close by, or I bring a recycled milk container filled with water and then pour on site.

I wanted to use this for plein air painting and thought the lid would fit into, not just sit on, the bucket. Thus it is not very useful for carrying water. I would need another closed source of water to carry along. Also, it does not seem to hold as much water as I thought it would.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
