POTS – With water for cleaning paint brushes.

ca: POT - Aigua per netejar pinzells

es: BOTE - Con agua para limpiar pinceles

A pot or jar for cleaning paint brushes should be made of glass, be large and have a wide opening. The inside walls should be kept very clean so you can see how dirty the water is. As the dirty water adheres and dries on the inside of the glass it becomes impossible to see if the water is clean or dirty. Water carried on brushes can affect the colors you are using.

a) A clean pot. b) A clean pot with dirty water. c) A dirty pot without water
