Boxes for face painting

Well, I used to get them from S&W Plastics, a company out in California. But, now I just save the split case square case boxes I get from Prism, Silly Farm, Tag, and Diamond FX. My favorites are the Prism cases. They are black, so they don't stain. When they run out of the paint that came in them, I just reuse them by making my own split cakes.

I have a bead box that I just got that looks A LOT like the one Squiggle has. I measured it and it holds about 55 grams of paint filled comfortably. I got it at walmart in the craft section. It has a locking lid with a good seal and does not seem to be to deep at all

I will have to transfer my paints out of the pill box (big mistake) to a bead box. The pill poxes (the ones with 14-day, two rows and detachable lids) are great for brushes, but for sponges - they are impossible!

I did find really nice single containers (1 1/2x1 1/2) with lids for split cakes at the Dollar store. They are actually slightly wider than Id like them to be, but they were way better than my original Snaz round jars (they close tight too!).

I did my first gig with my bead boxes last week and I have to say that I absolutely loved it. The ease of setting it up and taking it down made it all worth it. It was a little harder using the sponges, but not much. Mine have one longer space and I am able to put some of my purchased splits in there. I used 2 of the larger bead boxes for most of my colors but still had my larger splits and colors like black and white out in their original containers.

question??? What are the paints that you are putting in the bead boxes??? I ask because, wolfe (at least mine) tend to be dry, the snaz I have tried are really REALLY soft, so I can see putting snaz in the bead box, but the wolfe which is what I use right now, Looking forward to trying some different brands too,.... So curious what the diff types of paint people have used in their bead boxes, I think that will make a big difference!!!????

The paints I put in mine were mainly DFX and TAG. Some of them are harder and crumblier than others and still are not in their spaces as flatly as I would like, and I tried to smooth them out, but the more I work with them, the more they are smoothing out. It did not really affect the way they worked while I was painting, I just smoothed out the clumps as I went and/or went around them with my brush if I was using a brush. No one questioned my paints because they were out of the containers. My kit looked neat and clean and I enjoyed working with it.
