"Nice Rack!" my friend said when he saw me painting my Tau army behind my new painting rack. I was reluctant to invest in a painting rack from CNC Workshop, so I got my relatives to club together and buy me one for Christmas.
But I've got to say what a god send it has been when it comes to keeping my painting and modeling space clean and clutter free.
Before, when I used to use a paint pot, it ended up being placed slightly closer to me, so over an hour or two of painting, a wall of paint pots gradually marched towards me, making my painting space constantly shrink throughout the session.
The great thing about the painting rack is that it not only forces you to organise your paints, but keeps them away from you and slightly elevated, saving massive amounts of space.
As you can see, I got a corner section for all my tools and other random odds and sods. Okay they don't all fit in their perfectly, but it goes a long way to keeping everything tidy and organised. Before I used to use the entire table for painting, but now I only use half.
Yes, I do have more paints, but they're all neatly stored in a shoe box for when I need them. The paints you see here and just for my Tau army, because I'm not painting anything else right now.
So yeah, I highly recommend a painting rack simply for keeping your painting space in order. Never again will you wonder where the green stuff went or struggle to find an essential pot of paint.
That reminds me; I need to go through all my paints, throw out the dried up pots, make a note of all the duplicates and make a list of the ones which are about to run out. I've been getting through Scorched Brown like there's no tomorrow.
