    Yes it is way better than having it fall over while working. Thinking I may invest in one someday.

    As you can see from the design of the mount, it wouldn't be something difficult to make yourself. I repurposed a broken bendy desk lamp for something similar :)

    No you're not :laugh:...... I don't see a side feed in there ! I added one to my collection recently and now I wish I'd got it sooner.

    Here's a couple picks of my storage, looking to get a paint rack on the wall to the right so I quit knocking bottles over when I'm spraying, organization was never my strong suit and I think it's key for me to get "it" together for my own progress( life in general, not just painting:confused:).

    This is what my new studio looks like at the moment. We moved house and now the garage is mine. I'm going to strip out everything and start from scratch. The roller shutter door (from where the photo was taken) will be boxed in but the "box" will have doors so that I can access the outside. There are unfortunately no natural light so a few sets of lights will be hung from the high ceiling. I'm torn between carpet tiles and vinyl flooring. I want something on the soft side for incase I drop an airbrush *touch wood*. It will probably take $600-$800 to get it to what I want. I hope I can make my money back some day.

    Congrats @AndreZA !:thumbsup:
    It's always better to have bigger space to work inside.

    I have no natural light either for now. The last light source was LED 50W, 6500K colour temperature projector, I've bought two but one is enough and when two were switched on, there were weird shadows. LED is the best light I had for now. I haven't seen the difference in colours when I put the painting under the sunlight.

    You say you intend to get money back, so some commercial works are on the way. In this case, if I were you, I'd buy vinyl flooring for the reason of easy cleaning. Carpet tiles sound like not the easiest thing to clean after the spraying works.

    Hope you will have income from your ABing soon!:)

    I'm also looking at LEDs. Lower wattage but more of them.

    That stuff I'll be doing will be just the artwork, not the base- or clear coats. But vinyl flooring does sound like a better idea. I want to present basic classes too. We'll just have to see.

    BTW all LEDs I saw were 6500K, what's good for us. No matter if those were projectors or ceiling lamps (maybe only in my case). Only LED bulbs that had two different temperatures cool and warm. Don't buy warm temperature lights, they have bad colour rendering. 6500K is for us.

    Anyway, vinyl is always easier to clean:) I've got tiled floor, so even spilled urethanes are no big deal;)

    You needn't "to see", just start teaching:) From aside I can say you've got enough skills and knowledge. I'm confident you'll be good teacher.

    It's a rental and I'm not repainting the walls when/if I move. It's bad enough that I had to pay to change it from light brown.

    well this is my workspace, it's a room outside my home, 3m x 4m (9.5 x 12.5ft) but i only use 1 side of the room. Haven't built a ventilation yet cause it's still warm (do I need one? water-based paints) but i will soon. have a bed, my computer and some other stuff in it but it's not in the pic.
