Magnetic Paintbrush Holder


From the website:

    Magnetic Paintbrush Holder

    This is an excellent solution to the age-old problem of where to rest your brush when it is loaded with paint, lacquer, or stain.

    Designed to clip to the rim of any size of can, it has integral magnets to securely hold the brush ferrule, allowing paint, etc., to flow from the bristles back into the can, making brush clean-up much easier.

    One magnet keeps the brush above the liquid in a full can and the other grips it vertically for when the liquid level is lower.

    Molded from durable ABS, it even has a metal tab for opening cans.

    Much more secure than balancing a brush on the can rim.

Me, I'm too cheap and lazy. I just take a big fat rubber band and wrap it around the paint can after I open it.(Think like wrapping a bow around it, so that looking down into the can's opening you'd see the rubber band bisect the hole.) Leaves lots of room for stirring the paint, and not only can you rest the brush but you also can take off excess paint from the brush before you glob the paint on. The rubber band usually just gets tossed when I'm done.

Humm, that reminds me of my HandyPail. Same type of concept, a magnet holding your brush, but the Handypail is also a hand-held paint bucket (with throw-away liners even).
