So there's been some discussion elsewhere on what a portable painting station should entail, and I figured I'd get this discussion started. So here's mine. It's undergone some evolution and change over the years, and this is just the latest iteration. The basic case is just an ordinary tool box I bought at Aldi a while back. It was one of those "I will find a use for that" purchases that sat in the airlock (the foyer between the outside and the inside of my home) for a while before I decided I needed a new painting station, and this was going to be it. The lamps (more later) I've had for a while. The top, opened - some foam for minis I'm concerned about, (currently a pair of - very old - Zocchi D-7s and a Bonesium Egyptian priestess I'm working on), one of the little tubs that came with the box, a selection of Bonesium animals that probably should be in the tub, the toolbox, and a pot of Citadel Wraithbone for primer. Under the foam is a set of snips for plastics, metals, whatever. And you can see the underlying gridwork that holds the thing together if I were using all of the yellow bitz holders. Toolkit contents - some brushes I got when the local AC Moore went out of business, a pin vise and drill bits, a flat-edge nail clippers, superglue, a file, some brass wire for pinning (not shown) and a mold line scraper - I should really wrap some thread or something around the handle of that. Nothing fancy, nothing super-impressive, just a basic set of tools. There's still room in the tool kit for bitz I'm carrying to work on, or other stuff as well - the entire top row is empty. The main compartment is mostly paints (primarily Reaper and Vallejo, with some Army Painter washes), two (very solid and bottom-heavy, actually) water pots and a pair of plastic palettes, and en empty tub to carry some larger minis, or whatever, in. The paints are curated, but not currently organized - I need to go through and re-org them after pulling most of the tubs (the organization-by-tub wasn't working as well as I'd like, and putting them in this way clears up an entire bay worth of space) The lights are just a pair of OttLite reading lights I got on sale at some point, and have used in the past when I wanted a little more light - right there, or wanted to add some light to backlight something, etc. They're really handy. So, that's my portable kit - it's not very fancy, and someday I'd like to make a better one (when I have access to a makerspace again...), but it works, and is pretty solid both in terms of construction, and capability. What's yours look like?
Hi all, new to the forums but not to the hobby =). My dilemma...I LOVE the reaper paints! and have been using them for a long time I now want to leave the confines of my man cave and set out on the road to my local hobby shop, friends house, etc but don't want to fuss with setting up my auxiliary paint station once I get there. I have done some searching on the net and found some great kickstarter products yet their all from Germany, the UK, Spain! But none from here in the USA. I am reaching out to see if im missing something or to get ideas on what you all might be doing =)
