Be kind to your fine art brushes!
Stroking a brush across the smooth surface of the aluminum coil opens and separates the hairs for proper cleaning without damaging the fragile flags (the delicate split ends of brush hairs).
This heavy glass tank with a screw-on lid holds up to 12 oz (355 ml) of water, solvent or Silicoil Brush Cleaning Fluid.

The jar itself is made of nice, thick glass and the coils are solid. I've had flimsy jars in the past and they get really frustrating, but I can tell this one will last. Really good value for the price.

I normally have used a metal brush cleaner containter. I have to say that this spring system is fantastic and it is a great way to see the quality of oms as it ages. I highly recommend.

Good Brush Cleaner
from Vista, CA
I really like this coil style brush cleaner better than my old screen brush cleaner. I noticed that some of my brushes were getting damaged from using the screen type. This coil is gentle yet effective. The reason I deducted a star is the jar leaks. I travel with my paints so this is not acceptable. My solution was to remove the coil from it's jar and install into a short, wide mouth mason jar. Now it's leak proof and works wonderfully!

Very handy for cleaning brushes!
Wouldn't be without it.
from Charlotte NC
This purchase replaces an old one I'd had for years that was broken in moving. My only wish is that the jar could be an inch or two taller.
Got exactly what I ordered!
from Newport News, VA
I ordered two for use with oils, one for clean terpenoid and one for heavily used terpenoid. They work really well, although for long brushes they do end up sticking out a lot because the jars are rather short. A pickle jar with a lid would do a nice job but the coil inside is nice for really cleaning the brushes thoroughly. They both arrived really well packaged and unharmed.

I use this brush tank to gently and thoroughly clean my oil paint brushes. As a previous reviewer mentioned, I do wish it came in smaller sizes as I use walnut oil (which is quite costly in large quantities) in place of solvents.
