    Better to stir, but i still shake... Lazily i might add. Someone has a post on a homemade paint stirrer.

    I bought the paint stirrer (about £12 I think). I have it bodge taped to my dremmel stand at the moment (until I can be bothered to make a proper stand). it works just fine.

    About 2 weeks ago I bought a handful of multi-fasceted glass beads and placed one in each of my bottles. It mixes the paint perfectly every time. For the one that have been standing a while I still use my self made stirrer featured in another thread.
