I mostly use a spray bottle (well two of them) and I carry an empty plastic container for the few times I need to rinse a brush. I've never had trouble finding water somewhere at a gig.

I thought it was for waste water... kinda like we have to do here with our "hand washing station". We are REQUIRED to have a waste water container under the tap of our clean running water container... But I wondered why on earth she was transporting it Laughing

Hahahahaha float some apples in it and you have a partygame face paint in one!

This thread made me wonder if I am the only person who disposes of my old water before I leave the gig?

I have an aqua tote... it holds water and folds up to fit in my case.... so I can't leave water in it... I have a 500ml ( yes all this gallon crap mean nothing to me... just like my mls and litres to you lol) water bottle that I refill from but I hardley need any water as I spritz my paints too.

I have not had to carry water with me or take dirty water home with me. Everywhere I've painted I've just gotten water from there. I can imagine times that would not be possible though. Sorry about your mishap, Psalm, I will always remember it though and be very careful.

My paints got soaked Friday & they finally dried out today! I now have a big jug with a screw cap. I still have my dumping bucket so I can bring home my dirty water & sponges. I have a personal preference of not dumping my water on the premises. It looks sloppy to me to dump my yucky water in their yard, garden or dirty their sink or toilet with it.

Sometimes I just ditch my water cups and bring my spritzer, but other times when I'm in a pinch I go to 7-11 and buy two 1-liter bottles of water, but I like the idea of recycling an old juice container or 1-gallon water jug better, so I will definitely keep that in mind Smile

im glad your paints are still good.. i always carry my water separate..i have a 1 gallon jug from walmart with a sports top you could drink out of it if you wanted to ,,makes it easy to fill my little cups i use to wet my brushes.. i only put in a little bit of water in my cups..i don't fill them full.. gets on the wood part of the brush.. i try to keep the water just on the metal part of the brush.. works good for me.. I usually put my dirty sponges in a bag and take them home to wash with my brushes.

Oh Linda, I am so glad that your paints are still usable. That would have really been a tragedy. So I am very glad to hear that it worked out okay.

I have never put water in my kit itself, well sometimes I have a spray bottle and if it is a pretty small event just a bottle of spring water. Usually though, I have the kroger or Wal-Mart jugs of spring water and put them in my dump bucket that is a 5 gallon mop bucket. I do not have room in my fat Max for everything I guess. I just carry it to the event in the other hand that isn't pulling my fat max, apparently that is not how everyone else does it though. LOL! I go through a lot of water though, I know that it may seem wasteful but I always have like a huge jug or two of water in my van.

What do most of you dump your dirty water into while your doing a party. How often do you change your water?

I dispose of my water on the premises. My reasoning, perception. I'm painting someone's child and the residual paint in the water should be perceived as being just as safe as the paint that's in my pot. When I first started out, I would take my dirty water home until I had a party and the grandmother offered to dump my dirty water while I was packing up. I declined and she gave me a funny look...not wanting to leave on a sour note I asked if I said something wrong and she told me that if the paint water can't be dumped down the drain why would I paint her granddaughter with it. Point taken...well taken. I explained that I didn't want to stain her sink and she said it was stainless steel (lol) and informed me that she was a Fly-Lady follower and shined her sink every night anyway. She got to dump the water and I got a valuable lesson.

I don't ever take more than the contents of my spritzer bottles which I load before leaving home for indoor events. For outdoor event, I can usually get through an 8 hour gig with a gallon or two with some left over.

I take a bucket with me that I intend to dump my dirty water into as needed. I haven't done that many parties - the last one, with 21 kids, I didn't have time to dump it, and I didn't need to for any of the ones before that. At the end of each event, I ask if they have a sink I can use and I dispose of the dirty water from my basin there (making sure to clean it well!!).

I went through a Fly Lady phase... now my house is just messy all the time - but I still try to keep my sink shined LOL!

I loved the concept of Fly-Lady.... but the miscreants that live with me were very much against anything that had to do with order, lol! I used to get up in the middle of the night to go see my sink... naturally, I would trip over 500 things before I made to the kitchen, but it was worth it... for a while.

All my "waste" water goes in the bucket with the dirty sponges. If it is convenient I will take the opportunity to drain off some of the water before putting the lid on, but often don't have a chance. So just carry it all home.

I use ice cream buckets with lids. My clean sponges are in one bucket, and the other bucket gets an inch of water in the bottom and I toss the used sponges in it as I work and dump out the used water into it as I change it. All the sponges stay saturated which stops them from staining.

wowerz! 5 gallons!!

Here's a tip my good friend Robbie Hays author of Facepainting For Fun and Profit does. She paints plastic peanut butter jars, fills them with clean water and puts them in her kit. As the water gets dirty she swaps that for a clean one. Lids screwed on and off and never leak. She takes as many as needed per gig.

That would have been a gut wrencher Psalm.. Sad
.I take a five ltre container with a tap to large gigs and put a bucket under it so I can rinse my brushes,,wash my hands or whatever..For smaller parties I take a 1.5 ltre water bottle in a bucket.
