could this be applied to artists paintbrushes?

Yes. The application works for smaller artists paintbrushes also. Replace the gallon jug with a smaller container (soft drink can, etc) No need to cut small containers because artists paintbrushes are small enough to place through the container opening into the clean water. Replace the clamp with a clothespin to elevate and hold small paintbrush.
