Paint Dropper Tip.

4 posts in this topic

 I like to use empty food coloring bottles to store and drop small quantities of thinned and custom mixed paint.  I usually mix/thin in one of the small jars that came with my airbrush kit (I use my gravity fed for everything) then use an eye dropper to transfer the paint into the clean food coloring bottles.  Slide a finger nail under the the dropper top and pull it out for cleaning or to add paint.

  You can then just shake the bottle and drop and add only as much as you need to your airbrush cup.  Put the lid back on and its good till the next time that you need it.  

  Please feel free to share your method or containers.

i reuse old containers of paint as well as some i ordered from coast airbrush for the few custom colors i have done. i usually do my mixing/thinning before it goes in my gravity feed. i use communion cups to mix in. They are pefect for me - clear, small, and cheap. I dont have but a few custom colors, just a bone, platinum pearl (great for scales under a candy/transparent), and a few more.

I don't always get it thinned perfectly, and only paint 4 - 5 baits at a time so the small quantities work great for me. Thanks for sharing.

I mix a few paints in small glass bottles, and when I'm finished painting and or mixing; the screw top that comes with them seals them up nicely. Like jon boatin, I'll use the eye dropper for transfer from bottle to airbrush.
