ok so those of you who are aware of that song in my title topic would of totally got it, those who dont well... ummm... yeah, anyway!!

The names Jessika, im from Australia and im the owner of my very new business GorJess Faces! Very Happy
i plan on sharing all my bits and pieces! actually probley mainly storage and set up, i go week at the knees for organsation and things that look visually amazing!
I have been taking a glimps at your stoage solutions for some ideas, so far the fatmax is looking pretty cool... but i reckon i could build something even better, lighter and visually pleasing. so im putting myself up for the challenge! i plan on using all of you for my reserch to create the perfect portable facepainting set up with wow factor! what would you like your ultimate facepainting setup to contain???

Welcome!

I've yet to try vegemite, but understand from my sister in Melbourne that it's a healthier option to marmite Very Happy

as far as storage goes - something light, with lots of compartments of varying sizes, that doesn't take up much room, can act as a table and will transport itself!... okay, getting a little carried away maybe, but most of those would be great! Good luck in your inventiveness! Very Happy

@ helena! i like your thinking there all the things i had in mind..

soooo @ happy vickery... the fatmax..

i just happen to live straight across the road from bunnings! which stock the stanley fatmax, last night i went over there and done some research and compared a few portable units actually i spent 2 and half hours comparing haha. i do like the fatmax but.. i didnt think it offered enough space for a the little bits. dont get me wrong tones of storage and space but for larger items a big empty space down the bottom for nothing, well obviosly you would find somthing to put in there but i like tones on little sections, i do love the fact that it all folds out and you can work out of it but the top part isnt a very flat surface to work on. and the plastic that it is made out of would get super dirty and show every tiny mark, which it did after running around bunnings with it for a while. i need something more visually pretty but still have the same strength as the fatmax! maybe im to fussy but i feel something even better needs to be created!!! and the price really not that bad. $149au, and of course no postage becasue i could of just wheeled it across the road home Smile

anywho would looovvvee your thoughts

Personally, I don't like too many tiny compartments. Because I would never get things put back where they need to go on a gig. I like being able to toss it back in the general area and it be put away. I also like to pack up fast, and if I had to put too many things away, it would take too long.

When I've got my kit set up, I move the pull out tray thing to the flopped over lid. The side closest to me has split/rainbow cakes I use fairly often (but not all the time) The other side has split cakes/rainbow cakes I don't use as freqeuntly, and things like my Wolfe Skins paints, and general horror and gore type stuff.
There is a really big middle part, that I just cover up with my scrapbook case opened out. One side is completely full of paint, and the other side has black and white, 1 glitter in a poofer, and room for a few spit cakes and rainbow cakes that get used very frequently as well as my water and brushes and a few sponges. While packed up I keep some extra paint, my brush holder, and my mirror in there.

On the middle level, I take out just about all the the little dividers (like I said small space is not for me Smile Going from left to right, I've got baby wipes (and my drink goes here), the next one is glitter (several colors), body glue, and a round compartment conainer with different gems and googley eyes. The next two are both sponges.

The enormous bottom. . .I have a bottle of water, maybe 1 liter? A container that used to hold Deli Cat cat food, to dump dirty water, used sponges (I like having a huge open hold for this (less mess). The rest of the space is for my brushes, (they are in a zipper folder when not in use), sunscreen, bug spray, a jacket, any medicine I may need (or might want), A small picture book of ideas, a large picture book of ideas, my sign with warnings/info (rolled up until out and about) and other various things. I like having the big space because I have a few big things that I bring along.

I'm at work right know, Lol I know not working Smile

But I'll try to get a pic tonight, one packed up, one working so you can see what I mean. I hope that's what you were looking for Smile

wow. as i was reading this i was trying to picture in my head every tiny compartment haha. it soulds like you really have it sorted. i had another look at the fat max its kinda looking pretty tempting. do you just work straight from your fat max and do you stand with you paint? i stand becasuse im only 5ft 1 lol and the fatmax was a pretty good height for me.

Sorry, I'm just getting back to this Sad I do stand when I paint. I have to lean over WAY to much if I'm sitting, and it kills my back. I saw on another thread you decided on the Fat Max. How are you liking it?
