Step 1: Gather Your Materials.

Picture of Gather Your Materials.

Gather your materials:

• Recycled jar/container with sealable screw-top lid.
• Wire mesh strainer (such as a vegetable strainer, or even a sink strainer).
• Wire cutters.

Step 2: Assemble.

Picture of Assemble.

Take your wire cutters and cut the wire mesh from the strainer.
Then take the cut mesh and place it at bottom of jar. (Make sure your recycled jar/container is all cleaned out.) You want the wire mesh to fit snugly so it can retain its dome shape.

Step 3: Finish.

Pour in paint thinner (or any solvent you prefer for cleaning paint brushes) about an inch above strainer. To clean a brush, just wipe/brush bristles along and against strainer.

That's it!
