A handy addition to the cleaning system is this ample size bucket with convenient handle and tight lid to prevent spilling between painting sessions. It's a perfect transportation and storage unit for brush bath. The Cleaning Screen is included.
The Bob Ross Odourless Thinner can be stored in the bucket but it is recommended that you clean the bucket to remove the excess paint particles that settle in the bottom from cleaning your brushes.
Diameter/Width: 5 ¾ inch (15cm)
Depth/Height: 6 ½ inch (16cm)
The bucket golds 1/2 US Gallon (1.89 litres)
Please note: solvent should not be left in the bucket for more than a few days.
This is an excellent product and I would recommend it 100%. When used together with Bob's odourless brush cleaner it makes the whole brush cleaning process so much quicker, easier and cleaner. Carol (Bucks) on 10 Mar 2008
bucket now clear plastic...much better...can see sediment Philip Hayes (Wallasey, United Kingdom) on 27 Oct 2014
The screen is effective, but the bucket is not as described, it large and wide and unless you're using super-harsh paint thinner/solvents, you;re likely to need £20 of non-solvent thinner to get it to the right levels. It works fine... But I never imagined that paint thinner would be the most expensive part of oil painting, as is required by this unnecessarily wide device. Also, looks like they charged me £5+ for a non-branded bucket, which could be bought anywhere for £1. Definitely not the one in this picture.Robert (Bognor Regis, United Kingdom) on 3 Apr 2015

Bob Ross products are now distributed by Daler Rowney/LUKAS in the UK and we can no longer get the smaller US version of the Bob Ross cleaning bucket.
