Coleman Camp kitchen for face paint set up vs Craft'nGo

Post by arteacher on Wed Sep 06, 2017 4:35 pm

After watching Louise Cooper's video about her Spinoflex camp kitchen modified for face painting, I searched for that kitchen in the US.  Didn't find it, however, bought the Coleman deluxe camp kitchen on ebay for around $100.00 with free shipping. It is almost identical to Louise's & I love it!
 The only negative I found is the weight.  So, I placed it with my Tall directors chair on a small hand cart ($25.00 on line or Walmart).
I pull everything to the paint site at once.  I just remove the table, stand it up on the strong fold out legs, open the lid, remove plastic covers, add water, open directors chair (leaving wheeled cart attached) and I am ready to paint.  All of my paints are velcroed to the table surface...don't have to reach up and unlid my paint.  My brushes are stored and carried in a separate bag in a standing position.  When it's time to leave, simply attach the vinyl covers, spill out the water, place brush container in its bag, fold up chair, place table with folded legs on the cart, bungie and go!
  One thing that concerned me about the craft'ngo was having to reach up each time to get the paints stored on the lid.  Another was having to unlid all of the paints onsite.  That takes lots of time and then lid again before leaving.  Of course, the high cost and low handle seemed problematic to me.  
 I know many painters love their Craft'nGo set ups.  Way better than what was available in the past.  For those who like a larger flat surface, quicker set up and lower cost, a camp kitchen might be the way to go.

nothing like having to repeat routine tasks to make you find a more efficient way to do things Smile

sounds like your set up solves that problem.

plus, hey, you could face paint while camping Wink

Glad you've found the solution for you. I LOVE my Craft N Go Paint Station. The only thing I cover is my Black & White. All others are open to air. I've been face painting for six years & always did this w/out any issue. Unless I'm at a festival, chairs are usually provided (Yes, I'm a "sitter"). I walk in w/ my CNG, open up, pour water, sit & paint. To finish, I rinse any brushes that need it, cover my white & black, dump water, close & leave. My book fits in my CnG. This December will be two years since my husband bought it for my Christmas gift & I'm still loving this thing!!!
