Does it spin? Very Happy

I probably would hate it... I love love love the snaz jumbo palattes I've been putting all of my paint into just so I don't have to take the lids of of each individual container. And I don't care too much for round containers for small splits. But that's just personal preference. It does look really cool and I absolutely love organizing stuff! Maybe glitters not poofers and rhinestones...

I really like the snaz jumbo pallets too.

Except that I have a cracked lid. Know if I can get a replacement?

No idea... I wish they made them more sturdy. Maybe we should write a letter to rubbermaid.

I wasn't thinking of using it for splits I was thinking of using it for my face paints... Like I would put each individual color in it's own little case...

The round 'cups' are made of polypropylene. (not sure if that is an okay material for face paints)

I have my paints scooped out of each individual container now and put into a tackle box... like so....

So I was thinking I would scoop them out and put them in each individual cup in the sexy cool lazy Susan thing...lol

I need help!

Yes... lazy susans are both sexy and cool.

Oh, and isn't it just the Snaz paints that eat certain kinds of plastic? Maybe it's on their site.

But I am diggin the big box o'paint. Hmmmm. Do you not like your current organizer? What are the pros/cons to what you have before I reorganize what I own. Laughing

Most of the time the system you have now is good enough. There will always be another cooler and sexier solution. The trick is to be happy with you have. Otherwise you end up spending a lot of time 'transferring' stuff and spending a lot of money when it wasn't really necessary. I know this because I too am seduced by new ideas. I've been working real hard on this exact subject! Very Happy

I like the lazy susan, but I'd worry about portability. It looks like it'd be cumbersom to move around. I think it's intended to stay in a craft room.

Don't forget "crazy" - we want to be crazy sexy cool like TLC, haha.

It looks cool, but I would probably get annoyed with it pretty quickly, what with lids and all. (For FP - if it was to organize things at home, I'd be all over it!) I like that everything is spread out and open in front of me - and even then I do the hand shuffle to figure out where I've put my spray bottle!

I am SO down with getting Rubbermaid to make jumbo palettes, haha. I have a couple of cracked lids (that arrived like that, actually, and just yesterday I snapped the bottom edge on one palette...boo.

I think I'd get annoyed at having to open & close lids all the time. This is something that bugs me w/ my Starblends. My set up feels like it takes forever as I open each lid & chuck it in the carrying case. Worse is trying to get out of the party & 1/2 way through the lid closing process the late kid wants to be painted. I'd love to close & go so quick there'd be no time for that. I still haven't found a solution....

I have a set up similar to what you've already got. I think I would go crazy with all those little pots... opening and closing and then one kid takes off with one of them or bumps your table and everything falls out of the lazy susan....

I think I have decided to skip it... even though it seems super fun and cool the reason I stuck everything in the case I have was to save time and space from all of the individual containers. Thanks for your help guys in making me see the light!!! lol

I'm one of the ones that doesn't mind opening each container i guess. I do love the appeal of just poping one top and having your paints ready, though.... on well.

I like the containers but HATE the lazy susan idea.... doesn't seem logical to me... so you open and close each paint as you use it? Or lay them all out and have that massive black thing staring you down...

I would buy the containers as replacments for my cracked Snaz containers... that's all really

Duct tape people!! Duct tape.

I have reinforced the edges of a couple of my Snaz jumbo palettes with duct tape - after almost 10 years of carrying them in my kit they are beginning to get cracks on the corners, so I just cut duct tape into narrower strips and notch it to fit around the edges and corners of the palettes.

Since it comes in the same colours as the palettes... it isn't even noticeable.

Oh... and in response to the original post!

Cute but completely impractical for a working kit - transporting, getting at it... think about how much time you'd spend turning to find the colour you want...then having to open that colour... and put it back??

That's exactly what I was thinking Shannon. I am so forgetful, especially when painting. My mind is on the design, not what row and collumn my paints are in... Or where on the table for that matter. I could see myself spenging as much time hunting down the colors and opening them as I would spend on the painting itself... too much wasted painting time.

It is an intriguing idea and setup. It looks cool. I want to feel it and see how big the little storage cups are. Might be really useful for glitters and gems.

For me, the majority of painting I do is higher speed longer line situations. and prob wouldn't be a great solution as all the paint cakes would just end up spread all over the table since there would be no time to wipe the top of the cake, re-close it, and place it in it's spot on the lazy susan shelf.

I also would worry about putting the lid back on a moist cake - wet equals germ spread/reproduction right? I always sponge my cakes to clean the tops when I get home, let them dry completely, then close the pallettes.

Lastly, my concern is about a kid (or in night club - drunk person) bumping your table and knocking the whole "tower" over. Finally, I think I would lose my mind if someone were to start spinning that thing (aka handling my stuff) and spending MORE time choosing.

Now, I am probably just too content with the "pop" open the laptops, pour the water, prop up the brush easel, pull out a dozen sponges and go situation. (5 minutes tops) I think most kids/parents are visual and like seeing the ready to use colors they have to choose from.
