Joe Kutz Posted September 6, 2007 Share Posted September 6, 2007 I have really taken to the dropper bottles, but had a problem with them...previously all my paint shelves were set up for the various odd ball bottles that everyone used (screw caps, flip tops, square bottles, hexagonal bottles, short fat, tall skinny...). Anywho, was a bit of a mess and nearly impossible to keep everything handy and still know what everything is. So...I looked around a bit to see what else was available. I have a paintier and don't care for it too much. When I am looking for something it is inevitably in the middle or on the back side. Normal shelves would work pretty good, but I kind of prefer to store paint upside down (keeps the air out and paint lasting longer) - dropper bottles are hard to balance on end. Storing them flat was an option...but after I built a shelf to try it out (similiar to PaintByNumbers' shelf) I kept pulling out the paints next to them (fat fingers you know). So this is what I got: One section is about 12" x 12" x 2 3/4". It holds 45 paints, and keeps each one on an angle in order to help make shaking the paints easier. It also keeps them top down to keep the air out. I can pretty easily see what the colors are, by looking at them on the bottom - but I am thinking of adding labels under each one with a paint dot. An added accidental benefit is that it looks like I'll be able to hinge them on the side and use them as portable paint cases as well.
