Pawl and I have been nattering on about storage solutions for paints for a while now.
This is my current pile!

Does my head in. I can spend a good 5 to 10 minutes to find a paint sometimes.
So I've been meaning to pick up some sort of nice stackable solution where i can keep my paints without having to dig around to find them!
Ta da. The range!

Yes ive heard them mentioned. Ive got a mdf set up similar to that for my airbrush set up. But i tend to do my regular old painting in the kitchen so being able to pack and pick it all up and being safe from kittie cats is imperative 🤣

Had to check that Vallejo size bottles would fit, and aside from Metal Color and similar you're fine 😂

If I had a permanent setup then I would be looking at something like this - scroll down to the father nifty paint drawer things. Nail polish racks would work just as well but I want a 'proper' setup one day!
Unfortunately however I don't have a permanent space anymore, so I make do. Previously my paints were everywhere. The bottom drawer of a bedside table, an old shortbread tin, in a box under a bedroom table... It wasn't exactly organised!
A while back I purchased a two cases similar to these off eBay - cheap and cheerful, but they do the job. I had to cut a mesh pocket out of the inside, and also discovered that two rows have slightly larger/smaller holes (too loose and too tight, respectively), but in future I would simply make sure that all the holes were uniform. When I next open the wardrobe I'll get a photo for you.

Citadel paints I will eventually transfer into dropper bottles, but for now they're still in the bottom drawer with all the other oversized bottles (VMetalC, thinners, enamels, pigments etc) 😂


Also, if I may...

I just needed something stackable, about a4 size with 10cm depth. So im hoping it should be great.

How do you try to organise them?
I used to try and keep stuff that I was always using together, but I soon found that it ended up just being all the collection 😂
I've tried to organise the cases by colour, but even that's a pain. Dark to light? Cool. Is flesh its own colour, or is it a shade of brown? Is a blue-green its own colour? If so how blue or green does it have to be to count? 😂
