I am sometime not very clever at pouring painting medium directly from the bottle on my palette so seeing Nolan using some kind of laboratory pipe I went to a drugstore trying to find some. They told me that they do not sell it but that I can perhaps use dropper.


So I bought a few with the bottle and what was my surprise:


It does fit directly on a small painting medium bottle.
Happy guy  :clap:

Wow that's great!
I bought a box of 100 5cc plastic droppers on e-bay for about $5 including shipping. They were under "Pippettes" in auto paint if my faulty memory serves me. They gum up after a while so I just throw them away when they get too bad.

I also use eye droppers, and they do clog up, wondering if there is any easy way to clean them.  I use Liquin Original formula.  :-X   ???  :idiot2:

If you use the little bottle that come with the dropper, let the dropper in the bottle with enough Liquin in it. It won't harden.

Here in Europe, you just ask them in the pharmacy.
Most of the time you'll get them for free, or pay just a few dimes.
