Squeeze Bottles Simplify Studio Life

Recently I purchased some squeeze bottles; the kind that you might use to put mayonnaise on your hamburger or hot dog in a restaurant.

I use them to organize my oils and solvents. Now it’s very easy to access these liquids. No more breaking my hand prying off a frozen linseed oil cap or overtightened Gamsol bottle.

It’s also much cleaner to apply them either to a cup or my pallette or wherever I want them to go. Less wasted product too. The precision tips are great and they allow me to direct the contents precisely.

It may not seem like much but it’s a pretty amazing and simple solution that really makes my studio time more efficient, cleaner, and much more organized. Give it a try and see what you think.

I would love to know what your experience with this is so leave a comment below and I will feedback with you.-

Velasquez Medium and Oleogel

I am constantly looking for, and I am open to, ways of improving my experience of painting. I’m curious about techniques and tools that other artists use and I adopt things that I see and think I can use sometimes.

This time I am giving Velasquez Medium and Oleogel a try. I first learned about these products from Ryan Delgado, a wonderful painter whose YouTube channel is informative as well as entertaining. Check out his youTube channel for some useful instruction on oil painting and palette best practices.

I’m looking forward to getting to know these products which, by the way, are made by Natural Pigments of Willits, CA. Here’s a link to their website:
