All artists and hobbyists face the same problem every day
The problem lies at the heart of our hobby - in our paints.
Unused paint loses its original properties. The pigment separates from the medium and falls to the bottom of the bottle.
In general, the longer the paint is not used, the more difficult it is to reverse this process.
Often, a vigorousshaking of the paint will restore it to a usable state.
And yes, it is ok to shake your acrylic paints (unless the directions on the bottle tell you not to).
But mixing several types of paint by hand is time-consuming and tiring.
That is true.
There are various solutions to this.
- You can periodically change the orientation of the bottles in your storage rack.
- You can periodically shake them by hand (not a good solution for a large colour collection).
- You can use different improvised, noisy and crazy tools like drill or jigsaw to mix the pigments.
- You can also drop them from a great height hoping for a good shake (we do not recommend this solution)
You can also use a vortex ink shaker, a tool designed specifically for this purpose.
Why bother with half measures - you can become a pro today.
The vortex shaker is designed to mix most of the well-known brands such as Vallejo, GW, Kimera, Scale75, Golden, Turbodork, AP, Tamiya.
Simply connect the Vortex to the power supply and place the ink of your choice on the rubberised upper part of the machine, pressing the bottle gently against it.
The pressure sensor will activate the motor causing the ink to vibrate at a very high speed.
Twenty seconds is all it takes to get a typical ink ready for immediate use.
Outer shell and touch concave are made of plastic which is chemical-resistant. The thick base makes operation very steady and reliable.
Built-in 12V low voltage power adapter, very smart and portable.
