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.

Mine didn't come with a bottle, where did you find that kind of dropper?   :confused:

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.
