Dosani posted a topic in Painting Tips & AdviceHi, i saw on amazon a paint mixer/stirrer that its similar to the ones for drinks or coffe, only this one is for hobbist paint, its brand is badger. I custom made one that its really similar to this one and actually fits inside reaper bottles. I just used it on some reaper and vallejo paints that i have for a while, some of them especially the vallejo ones were kind of gummy with pigment on the bottom, i used my custom stirrer and solved the issue! . Thing is, it works very well, but on reaper i feel as if it makes the paint less dense, and in some colours like pale saffron and lemon yellow this is more evident, is covers well but feels a little similar to watercolor in its consistency . Maybe its because the stirrer is quite potent and spins very fast, so wanted to ask help to anyone that have experience using a stirrer for mixing paint and also ask Anne Foerster or some people that actually work with the composition of paint, if any of you are seen this, please help ! ;) will really appreciate it. If i use this product can i harm the reaper paints that i have? Also on the other hand mixing the paint like this can have any positive effect as well? Thanks for all the help, i always count on this forum when i need some important facts or tips ;)
I know I mentioned wanting to do this in a post somewhere a while back. However, the time has come to do it. I work in a lab at the local hospital and we use these test tube mixers for various intricate lab reasons. Anyway, I've been eyeing them since I started working here. Naturally I wanted them to mix paints at home. Luckily I also have an awesome boss who agreed to let me have them when we exchanged them. Which was yesterday. Behold! It works great! So if you work in a lab.. :P Edit: and before you guys point it out. Of course I completely disassembled and sterilized it before putting it on my kitchen table. It's probably a lot less hazardous than my two cats at this point.
Hello everybody! I made a little paint shaker-mixer, of which I am quite proud of. Very simple, very silent, and not terribly efficient but it helps. It is a nice addition to my painting desk. In the video you can see it in action, along with an explanation of how it was made. Hope you like it!
