Black Laptop Cases Opinion Vs Scrapbooking cases...

Post by Mirandas on Fri Jan 07, 2011 4:41 pm

Hello Everybody.....

I'm planning on getting one of those black laptop cases for my paints, I'm currently using a scrapbooking case and its a little bulky. My thing is that I have all kinds of brands and some of them are 90mg, I was wondering if they will fit on them cases since they are so thin. Also wondering how many I will be able to fit and I'm planning on removing the foam insert and be able to velcro my paints both sides just like on the scrapbooking case.
So I will love to read your imput regarding the the laptop cases, vs the scrapbooking ones..which one do you think is better..
Here is an old pic of my scrapbooking case, as you can see it is bulky. Got rid of my starblends to make room for some more paints lol
Thanks in advance!! Very Happy

Hey hey!

I know that you can't fit 90 gram paints into the Mehron laptop cases.

But a some artists have their 90 gram cakes separate from the rest of their cakes and just take out the 90's when they need them.

Sorry, I'm no help at how many actually fit w/o the foam though.

Best wishes!

I have put all of my paints into a bead/craft organizer. It was the best thing i've ever done to reorganize. It holds so much paint and takes up very little space.

The scrap book case holds a lot more paint.

Lol! Yeah Heff, I keep telling myself I'm gonna downsize, then I go through trying to find a color I'm willing to part with and I just can't find one. What can I say, I love my paint.

I love how they are so well organized, by color shades..neat!
I had the feeling that the scrapbook case holds more paints but I've been having trouble finding thin ones, so far only seen like the one I have...
The bead storage case sounds good to downsizing, but I dunno IMHO they look kind of messy, might be me being weird.. Embarassed
Thanks guys! Very Happy

I have 1 scrapbook case & 1 black laptop. I like the scrapbook case soooo much better. The black laptop has a hard time staying shut(it has a lousy latch system). Since I store my cases upright in my fatmax, sometimes my laptop paints will fall out of the case. The scrapbook case has a solid latch that holds it shut. I do velcro the paints in & this has helped.

I have color obsession issues too Smile I keep mine in the TAG palettes and I really love them - I can use a sponge easily. The only issue is that the pots are too small for full body painting so I do have to have a separate kit for that.

OMG! Lookit all those split cakes!!!!!!!!! *sigh*
But there is a sale at Micheal's today....I think that picking up one of those cases sounds like a plan...looks like the thinner one is a bit less bulky for packing. I may be paint starved now, but I will be adding to it asap.

Linda..where do you store your cases inside the fat max, in the bottom part?
I'm planning on getting a Fat Max also..

OMG... I would have to have to de-lid and re-lid all those though. That's why I use my laptops... No messing around with the lids.
