    I have seen a few people using nail varnish holders for their paints.
    I ordered one unit to see how it works, I am quite pleased and have ordered another one now to go next to this:

     

    EBAY SHOP

    You can also use the nail varnish shakers to agitate paint – great for dropper bottles with ceramic or metal balls in them.

    Do NOT do as I did and buy cheap ‘stainless steel’ balls from eBay – I’ve ruined most of my paints with rust now…

    Reaper used to pop skulls in their paint but I cannot find any notes on their site now but Army Painter do 100 mixing balls in a blister pack.

    Too late. I had the same idea and now half my paint are full of rust.

    Tired is enough.

    Now I am fearing the type of ball bearings I put in to my paints…..

    Shelldrake  – have a look on the bottom of the pot.  I first spotted a small brown / grey splodge and that was it.

    You could remove them now if nothing is visible.

    Another forum has one member using glass BB pellets and I wondered about recycling a disliked figure or two!

    Looking for actual steel ball bearings? Pop down to your nearest bicycle shop. They will have decent quality ball bearings that cost peanuts…

    The other one has arrived:

    I find these preferable to the MDF styled tiered ones, as they encroach less into my work area and being acrylic are much easier to wipe clean.
    That is pretty much most of my paints, though I was careful enough to leave space for a third.

    Uh-oh. Seeing several paint pots that you haven’t closed properly 😛

    That’s a nice way to organize them.

    I bought one of the mdf organizers and I think it is disappointing.
