    Hi Ong

    I have some of the sets and after about a week took them out , kept the insert , threw the box away and put a small spit of paint on the top .....so when I look at the " many" bottles in the drawers from above ...I see the colour

    I group my "colours" in the plastic boxes that my figures come in Troop54 being one and Elan13 being the other.

    I do think it is great if manufacturers are pushing the boundaries to produce new higher quality paint. However, I have been surprised by the quantity of products available, but seeing how well the latest Scale75 paint kickstarter has done I clearly I live in the Dark Ages. Well done to them for bringing to the market something that has proved to be so popular.
    As we all know the latest paint makes us better painters and the newest putty makes us better sculptors, or perhaps...

    I actually haven't got any of this belly-button fluff.....is it readily obtainable ? I suppose its for enhancing dioramas ( little shrubs, grass,etc. ) Is it good for mopping up paint spillages and superglue ? I asked the Mrs. and got very short shrift ! :oops:

    Sounds like an opportunity Alan.
    I will engage all the blue sky thinking dept to see what sets we can put together to fill this demand.

    Strange you shoukd mention this Peedee ..., this is what I am doing my MA thesis on , the results are amazing .....for instance there are Amazonian tribes where the Warriors have different coloured fluff to show their status and how macho they are in the tribal order ......

    Mine is a bright pink ...for some reason ....??

    Got to go now ..Nursey is calling ....

    I do the same thing for the paints in my paint racks. If the paint separates the side view does not work:cry:

    I have a question - let me add straight away that no mischief is intended, it's merely of academic interest. How do users
    of these paint sets arrange all the jars ? Presumably they are placed on some sort of storage rack ready for instant use, but
    in what order ? Like a spectrum perhaps with the pure colour in the middle with diminishing shades to the left and tints to
    the right ? Alphabetically - 'R' for red, 'S' for skin, so forth ? I imagine that several dozen jars have to be dealt with and a
    painter could easily confuse , say, a Peruvian Army Helmet Green with an Ancient Celtic eye colour so would it be a better
    bet to stick with the manufacturer's original description again alphabetically ? How on earth do they cope ?

    I have a draw with plastic trays from the figures I have brought, in one I have flesh colours , in others blues and group of colours that go together, metalics in another.
