You should start marketing them (sprayed a suitable Olive Drab for gamers) - I can see them shooting off the shelves.

Brilliant!

Sounds great. Iíve been looking at lab vortex mixers for a while, but have been put off by size and cost. So I will have a look at these as an option, as there always seem to be some paints that refuse to mix!

Looks interesting. Not sure where I would put it, despite having a small dining table as my painting table.

Iíve got one, it is very good, especially if you put one of those little balls in the paint pot.

Nothing wrong with nail varnish  Tongue.

I have used it in the past, to seal the bottom of three of the nails on my right hand.....For some unknown reason.....(Probably using Green Stuff 52 weeks of the year)....I've destroyed the cuticles on those three fingers and I constantly get whitlows.

Before anyone asks......I use CLEAR varnish.

(I've also got packets and packets of clear false nails, to stick on with 'superglue' if a nail gets so b*ggered it's ready to snap off at the base.)

I've got one of these aswell. Think I ordered it from wish.com.


Do note that the machine makes an awful noise, so brace yourselves for the cats will be jumpy!
