Title: Holding box for paint-applying roller wet with paint

Abstract: A paint roller filled with wet paint may be stored for a period of time, such a over lunch break or overnight, or for longer times, and still be useable for painting, by substantially sealing the roller while attached to the usual handle-attached, paint applicator to which the roller is mounted, in an elongate box which covers the roller and through an opening in which a portion of the paint applicator extends. The portion of the paint applicator extending through the opening is substantially sealed by deformable paint solvent absorbent material in the opening to which a small amount of paint solvent, such as water, is added to maintain a solvent rich atmosphere in the box to help maintain the paint on the roller in wet, usable condition.
