Thanks for all the great suggestions. I think the Vortex sounds like exactly what I'm looking for -- and you're right, Qwyksilver, there are quite a few on eBay for reasonable prices. The 8-at-a-time method appeals to me mainly because painting is something of a boom-and-bust activity for me. I'll have the time to do all kinds of painting for a while, then months might pass before I can get to it again. Having to spend the first 40 minutes of a session picking out my colors and shaking them is a drag! Thanks again!
At the risk of sounding unforgivably lazy: Does there exist any sort of "mechanical helper" for thoroughly shaking up dropper bottles of paint? I have split shot in my bottles, but I'm talking about something like that vibration thing they have at the home improvement stores for quickly agitating gallons of housepaint. When I'm sitting there shake-shake-shaking for a minute or more, I can't help but think how nice it would be if there were some sort of device I could tuck 4 or 5 bottles at a time into and get them all nicely agitated at one go. Am I dreaming the impossible dream?
