Split Cake containers

Post by Ginacentral on Tue Oct 05, 2010 4:03 pm

I found this at walmart (in the craft area $7) the other day I actually purchased it for something completely different but since I bought two and ended up only needed one I think I'm going to try making my own cakes in them instead of returning it. Just sharing in case anyone was interested.

Yes, I've seen those! I have the bigger ones that twist into each other. I need to make some splits with mine.

I used to put all of my paint in that when I first started. The containers were too deep for me, but it might work better for splits than it did for my regular cakes.

Just be careful with round containers as you tend to have all the paint in the center go before the colors around the edge. Square or rectangular, shallow containers work best in the long run.

Yeah I thought about that too.... but I think i may do these as just two color blends which I don't have any of at all. I figure these will be more for using with a Brush. I also plan to put glitter in about half these. I think these would be easier way to store all my glitter from my glitter tattoos.

When I began face painting, I found some cool split cake containers at walmart in the fishing section for a buck & $1.29. I used the smaller one for sponge brushes and preferred the wider one for longer brush strokes for a quicker One Stroke load. I cut off the hinges so the container would sit in the lid to use less table space and easy pack-up.

To give you an idea of their size, here they are, shown at my Restaurant gig.

Happy Painting,
Susan

Wow, I just switched to those a couple of weeks ago. I keep all my colors in one container, (i downsized from the larger size I had bought and will use the leftover to make splits) and one container, i took out all the round containers and put my bought splits in and a 3rd container I put all my glitters in. So, packing/unpacking my kit is easy! I love the tye die underneath your setup Susan!
