Bonwirn Posted January 14, 2015 Share Posted January 14, 2015 (edited) I think I have figured out how I am going to organize the paints. I have the Back 2 Baseix "The Rack" system, so that is going to stay. The paints will be organized by number. That is the only real way to find a paint that I want/have used and need a touch up... So, now the question becomes how do you find THE color you want? The solution was rather easy, once I chatted with Wren and a few others (who paint, just not minis)... I took the color chart done with the MSP colors, and sorta redid it in black and white! Well, I created the squares with the color name and number with a spot to put a drop and a smear of color. I printed the chart out on heavy cardstock and will store them in the protective sheet sleeves. As I am painting, I will put a drop of unthinned paint on the lower left of the box, and a thinned brush stroke (smear) of paint on the lower right of the box. Then, as I am painting, or working out colors for a new mini, I can reference the "color chart" with actual colors on it... ETA: Oh, and as for portability... well, I will use one of the Reaper paint cases that holds 36 paints... and stock it with duplicate 'basic' colors, leaving about 10 slots open for the, "I'm working with THAT color on the mini I am taking with me!".
