Ok you are re organizer crazy, but i really like this. You have so much in such a small space. That's the one thing I have about snaz, can't really transfer it. I think this setup rocks.

Suzy, I adore you and your setups, haha.

I have to admit, though, that when I saw the title (I just look @ new posts) I was hoping that this was a Swap Shop post and you were doing a sell-off again Razz

You have 30 mini splits!!! Holy cow! I have 17 minis and thought that was a lot...

That is fantastic! Thanks for sharing.
Are they velcroed in or magnetized? Or do you place them in (*edited: at/for) each gig?

Envioussss of all of your splits! bounce

Thanks for asking! I wondered as well but was too shy to ask.

The more I look at it, the more floored I am in its efficiency and logic. I'm baffled as to how to duplicate this on my budget but I love it. I especially love all of the small pots for maximum colour range but best fit.
Are the small pots all made from your larger cakes?
With all of those splits, you have a fantastic variety to offer colour combo choices to your clients while getting fast, high-impact designs. Efficient, smart, super-organized layout. I might have a bit of a crush on your setup!

Haha! I repot my paints too! Is it weird that when I look at that pic, all I wanna do is organize the splits by color as well??? Here is my set up, not organized, but you can see the round containers that I use to hold paints as well!

I stick with the Snaz Pro-54 palette... got it in a swap on here! The round Snz palette I won, and the one with my split cakes is a Lowe-Cornell "Paint Saver" I bought at Michael's.

Justine, it looks like Ashley has pill containers (drug stores carry them) for her handmade splits, and the round ones look similar to the bead containers found in craft stores. We have a Michaels here that carries them in the bead section. I wonder if that is where they got them from? Do you have anything like that available there?
I LOVE the set up too. I wonder about fixing the containers in place and keeping the lids off, placing some kind of foam insert between the two sections so when the case gets closed, it offers extra protection...? That would save a lot of set up time and avoid the problem of taking off all of the lids every single time you set up...?

I am another drooler...I need start making money so I can buy more colors!! pirat

Those of you who re-pot your paints (or make your own splits in those pill containers) do you not use any snaz? Are the brands you use okay in that plastic? I mostly have snaz (and I've heard nasty things about snaz and plastic) but I'm afraid to move around ANY of paint from their original containers (although I think thats also because I'm new and don't have as much paint to begin with, lol)

I would avoid putting Snaz in anything BUT Snaz made containers... So far my paintsaver tray is fine (but it was made for use with artists paints which are a little more "chemical" than face paint).

But re-potting other brands (besides Snaz) is considered safe then? I like the setup and hope to do that in the future, but is the type of plastic something I should be concerned about when choosing new containers?

Ideally you should avoid non-food grade plastics due to leaching of chemicals from the plastic. I do not use bead containers - the plastic is the cheap, brittle type and I'd be worried about cracking and leaching.

Just my preference.

Snaz eats certain types of plastic... I think there is info about it on the Snaz US site www.snazaroo.us

Thanks for sharing this info. I slice and dice my paints as soon as they arive and make split cakes and half cakes so they take up less room. I'll have a look at the craft stores around here for new ways to chop up my paints Smile I really love seeing other painters kits.

Thanks for sharing Suzy!!! That looks awesome! That's my dream be able to get more colors in my pallet using less space.
I have a scrapbook case and I'm running out of space.
Please tell us, Does it close, when u use both sides?
