Summer life has done its best to reduce my hobby output to almost nil this month. I have done some work travel which provided the opportunity for some travel painting. I am a bit of a nerd (surprise!), so I tend to use my evening time in the hotel to do some painting. This month I decided to upgrade my kit with a plastic tote I found for 60% at target. (Seen above). It comes with three plastic layers, two smaller open bins, and the top has an internal divider. I opted to just use the top bin for carrying paints, and a second layer to hold brushes and minis.
I use the cardboard clamshell box and the smaller tackly box to carry the 6mm minis I want to paint. In this case, it is the 10mm Confederate Cavalry and Infantry I have left to complete my 10mm ACW conversion.
For my old kit I used just two of the tackle boxes shown for minis and brushes and then stored my paints in container my Saga paint set came in
I fits neatly inside my rucksack. Most hotels I find are kind enough to supply me with a copy of USA Today to cover my work station, a plastic cup to rinse my brushes and even a coffee filter to use as a palette.
