Cool Stuff #3

I admit it, I have a LOT of paint.  Here's the rack I have and it is entirely full of acrylic paint....yes 300 bottles fit on this rack!!.  And believe it or not, I have two huge boxes full of duplicates stored in a cabinet.  And that's not counting my fabric, glass, oil, and watercolor paints.  That's what happens when you are a painter for over 25 years and attended numerous conventions back in the day when you got to bring all your class paint home!
So while I was intrigued by Ranger's mess free Adirondack Acrylic Paint Dabber line of paints, I couldn't justify buying more paint.  I did break down and by a bottle of the pearlized white as I didn't have anything similar.  I liked how the dauber top made it easy to apply paint to stamps with no brush to clean.  Sooooo....when I heard that Ranger sells replacement dauber tops, I had to see if it would work on the paint bottles I already had.
I am happy to report that they DO INDEED fit my acrylic paint bottles:  Delta, Americana and Folk Art.  I plan on using the three I bought with my gold, silver and bronze paints and may even buy more tops to use to basecoat a large painting project.
