Tip of the day #25

TIP OF THE DAY #25
The little 4oz shot glass is an excellant mixing cup for
those small mixes for touch-ups and graphics.
They're heavy glass that resist breakage and easy to wipe clean.
Bondking shows one in his article about blending.
They have ml markings besides ounces. The ml's are very small
increments that make a small mix easy to measure.
You can find them at most liquor and Wall-Mart stores.
You can also find the little stainless cups there too,
like the one Mathew showed in his article.
They make it easy when you want to dip out just a little.

This is a great tip, should help eliminate some garbage as well (plastic mix cups and other disposable mix containers). Bob

Good tip. For slobs like me that don't like to clean up, they make disposable 4oz. paper cups with 1/4oz. graduations. I can't find them on the net, but if anyone is interested, I can get the part# from work on Monday.

I have got to tell you guys, using an inexpensive mixing cup like these (click here) E-Z mix cups are just toooooooooooo nice. When you think of how much paint costs, thirty-80 cents or so for a cup is a bargin. And most important, you KNOW it is right.

Brian, those are the exact cups I use too, but for
mixing 1oz of clear with 1/4oz hardener the shot
glass is much more accurate.
It's just for those really small mixes.

P.S. You guys be carefull using paper cups, most have
wax coatings that disolve with paint and gets in
your mix. Don't know what effect that has

I finally remembered to look at those little paper cups we use, and guess what, they are EZMIX, as linked above by MARTINSR, but they are the #70004. We buy them by the sleeve, and they do not have any wax on them, but rather some kind of thin shiny coating on the inside, probably plastic. I do not often use the graduations, preferring instead to slap them on the scale and weigh the material. The lines on the cups work though, especially if you put a light source behind the cup to see them better.
