An Aussie going mad!!! (Over ice tube trays)

Post by tigerlillyjessie on Sun Jan 13, 2013 8:38 am

Hi everyone!
I have seen in so many of your set ups those ice tube trays for your brushes. I love this idea! But I am out of ideas for how to get one in Australia. I've never seen one in a shop, I can't find any online in Australia, including on ebay and gumtree, and even in America I can't find anyone that will ship to Australia. Not even amazon will ship that product to Australia, and walmart only stocks it in the physical store. Dargh! Have any Aussies been able to find one anywhere? Or does anyone know of where I can track one down?
Thanks Smile
Jess
(This question may or may not be related to the fact that I just bought 6 new brushes and I have nowhere to keep them lol)

Hope you find a way to get them tigerlillyjessie. I'm have a hard time finding them over here! I checked Walmart, Bed Bath and Beyond, Target...finally I ordered it from Amazon. About 5 days later I got a email telling me they could not fulfill my order scratch

Idk what the shipping costs are to get it to you but I would be willing to grab one from my local walmart (they were $10 I think scratch ) and ship it if you pay me back + the shipping. Just a thought....never shipped to Australia though lol. Or maybe someone that is a bit closer with access to them would be willing to do the same favor. Very Happy

Side note- I noticed on the label it is patented by mainstay which is walmart's brand...I think that's why they cant be found anywhere else.

I searched high and low for them also and couldn't find them anywhere. I dot know if you are open to other ideas but here's what I did - I bought a couple of plastic cups from spotlight and put plasticine in the bottom. I can stick my brushes in so they don't touch each other and I don't get paint everywhere. The cups are easy to clean and they stack in my kit so they don't take up much room.
I feel your pain with not being able to get cool facepaint stuff in Australia!

I just ordered two of these ice cube trays from Amazon. I hope they don't send me an e-mail telling me I can't have them!

No problem! I also see that it looks like they ship internationally! YAY FOR AUSSIES!

Looks like it's $19 to ship though...that's kind of steep. BUT, if you got together with other painters there you can order all of them together (up to $50 US for that shipping rate) and mail them?

My brush solution...a coffee can (one of the plastic kind) about 1/3 full of dry rice. holds the brushes up without touching, and the rice absorbs any water drips.

Thanks Sandie, I tried a container with dry beans, I think rice would work better. Laughing Leave it to an art teacher like you to come up with a good idea for brushes!

Thanks, Valerie. Believe me, I learn more here than you can imagine, so it's nice to be able to give back once in awhile!!
Barbb, I have so many brushes that I don't think the easel would work for me! I am a brushaholic!! Laughing
