Mixing cups

I loved coffee. I don't know if I could survive, without it. I have found that the creamer cups are perfect for mixing paints. I use them for mixing all types of paint, including those requiring lacquer thinner. Next time you are at a warehouse store, pick some up.

They are the cups you get with cough sirup. I picked up 50 for like $5. Also, sponges of different shapes are also available!!

But I like living dangerously by using the wife's tea cups.

Not sure how that is a problem

July 27 2015, 1:59 PM 

two or three drops of Vallejo paint in the bottom and a brush load of water. If I were mixing a lot of paint I would use a large(r) jar. Ive always found either some aluminum foil or a cap worked for me

resin mixing cups

July 22 2015, 12:27 PM 

I got used to these clear 2oz. cups used for mixing resin. I used to get them for $3 for a pack of 50, but then my (at the time) local hobby store closed. I've found a supply online at a hobby rocket outfit - 6$ for a pack of 100. The caveat is no covers so unless you transfer contents to an airtight container, these are only 'per session'. I mix paint in these and place in an inverted rattle-can plastic top so it won't tip over, and discard when done. Cheers.

Medical supply cups

July 22 2015, 9:40 PM 

I've been using the medical supply cups for years. I like them for two reasons. First, is the ones I buy have different measurements on the cup so I can use those for mixing paint formulas. Second, they wash out easily, so are reusable.

My point is, if you drink creamer, the cups are free.

Cups

September 7 2015, 11:22 PM 

Wendy's around here (NY) have gone back to plastic cups for their ketchup. I stock up whenever I go there.
I'm not sure but I don't think they'll work with anything stronger than acrylic.
