Black Caps for Reaper Dropper Bottles


Recommended Posts

I have some Reaper-produced HD paints that came with white caps.

 

I would like to obtain some black caps, in order to avoid the psychic pain of having paints that aren't configured properly. But the only caps that I could find in the Reaper store were white caps.

 

Is there any hope for me? By which I mean, is there any hope that I could obtain black caps (for Reaper dropper bottles) from the webstore?

Understood.

 

And it would help me, except that I have some HD paints that came with white caps. And that's not helping me -- in fact it's threatening to drive me a little (more) crazy every time I think about it. That's what I'm trying to rectify -- the unnatural union of HD paints with white caps.

Get some cheap shrink-wrap tubing for 18650 batteries. 

(Search on ebay for it)

It fits nicely on the caps, and will allow you to use more colours for organisation.

(I use orange for 'special edition' paints, and red for 'discontinued'. You could also add a colour for the liners, washes and so on. )

Well, there’s always the rattle can solution. Spray paint the caps with flat black. That kills off the grey ones too.

 

Could always get creative and paint them all in freehand designs too. But that’s a bit overboard....

 

... and something I’d really like to do now. Curse you full time job!!!

I'm sure there must be some way to buy the black caps by themselves, but you can always buy a bag of bottles with the right caps. Just make sure you get the bottles with blunt dropper tips and caps, and not the ones with skinny tips. Amazon has a cheap 50 pack of tiny 5ml bottles that should work just fine. Search for "TOPWEL 5ml 50pcs Empty Plastic Dropper Bottle/dropping Bottles with Black Cap(drops of Plug Can Removable)plastic Bottle Eye Liquid Dropper".

You want bottles with tips like these:

NOT pointy tip ones like this:

 The 15ml bottles are way more useful for re-bottling paint or putting water or Gunk in, but they're pricier than the tiny bottles, and the 15ml bottles with black caps on Amazon seem to have the pointy tips and caps.

Good find.

 

At the worst, you can swap your white caps for the black caps. Empty eye droppers come in handy, even without caps.

 

I have some airbrush medium as thinner, and just use a paper clip as a "cap". The paper clip is useful to unclog paints!

They're available from a variety of manufacturers for pennies: you can buy 100 black caps (size 15/415) from General Bottle Supply for $7.50. However, the cheapest option for shipping for that order would probably be $15.00. Ouch!
