I may not have been painting as much this last few weeks but it has not stopped me wanting to remedy my space issue for my paints. I looked at various types of rack to house the overspill of paints from my original rack. I was looking for one that worked best with Vallejo droppers as my other rack can hold different shaped pots and was restricting the size so as not to cause a major shift on my table.
I settled for this rack from Ebay for £10.95 which holds 40 bottles, far more than I need at the moment but lets face it our paints only increase in numbers. I would have given a link to the supplier but as their policy is zero feedback till they receive it I won't bother. A pet dislike of mine is traders who hold you to ransom until you have given them feedback. Why? If something went wrong with the supply would that make my prompt payment any less prompt?
The new one is on the left and has some neat holders for nearly empty bottles, though they still go in the holders reasonably well upside down anyway but could act as natty reminders of which paints you need to restock.
I have to say putting it together was something of a chore, it is not a tight fit at any point and trying to build it up was a bit of a challenge and unlike the one on the right had to be glued together to stay together. Still it was all done in about 45 minutes and nice and sturdy the following day. For the price it was perfect. If I need to get another I will probably replace both racks with a much bigger set up but before then I may have to increase my paint options by about 30 more paints so not yet awhile I say.
The off cuts from the sprue's look like little people and the kids will have some fun painting these up, especially the other sprue that comes with extra heads and legs. See nothing is wasted and the kids have some creative fun, well worth the cost.
