Any story sounds true until someone sets the record straight.

LIFE IN THE STUDIO.
A can of solvent is used to clean oil paint out of brushes so they can be used again and again to paint different colors on the canvas. The solvent absorbs the old paint from the bristles and becomes dirty. In a few hours the pigment has fallen to the bottom of the can leaving clean solvent above the strainer to prep the next day's paint brushes. When not in use, a hinged lid closes the can to keep the solvent from evaporating.
