In my last post I was showing you how I was reorganizing my art studio.
It was looking pretty good, too.
And then I got an awesome idea for getting more of
my color media out where I could actually see them
and be able to remember what I have.
Hence, Reorganizing Take 2.
When we lived in Florida, we had one of these
nifty hanging racks on the back of a closet door and
we stashed boxes and cans of food in it.
$29.00 on Amazon and it was here in two days.
This is the perfect way to get my color available where I can
see what I have. And not forget.
And before you get discouraged, I have been collecting
color for almost 6 years now.
Just so you know.
All these bottles of color were previously stashed in
drawers and in pretty boxes. Where it was not visible.
So easy to forget what
I have and just keep going back to the items
on my rolling carts.
By moving things out of boxes and onto the back
of the door, I was able to free up a bunch of space.
I now have 2 drawers of alcohol ink.
Easier to access and still portable.
I work with these in the kitchen because that room
is better ventilated than my studio.
This is far and away the coolest thing I found!
I got this on eBay. A long time ago. It was in the bottom of a drawer underneath a lot of other things.
It was made in England by Page of London.
The lid is a little dented up . . .
. . . but the paints inside have never been used.
It’s crazy how the colors are all mixed up and in no order.
It is a huge set – the tin is 7″ x 12″.
I can’t decide if I want to use the paints
save the paints.
A used and nasty set is going for $39.00 on eBay.
And today – I continue cleaning up.
Cause I made a serious mess yesterday.
