    I have some E'TAC Private Stock I'm experimenting with to compare with some EFX I've already practiced with. The EFX has a proper dropper lid that allows for clean dispensing whereas the etac PS has a funky sort of flip top lid that dispenses less cleanly. My issue is that every time the lid is opened, it throws paint out and onto everything within a 12" radius. Am I missing something?

    Oh yes, good idea. If I can find some inexpensive screw tops, that would be ideal, rather than trying to get all the paint out of a little bottle into another little bottle. Superb. Thanks!

    Very good suggestions, @AndreZA! I have had the same issues with dispensing reducer and paints from the flip-top bottles consistently as @dmshanks. If you don't like the cap, swap it out for something that works.
    An obvious answer when you think about it perhaps. Which is something (thinking) I didn't do. lollol

    I'm a bit of a night owl so I rarely go to bed early. I am without a bike to ride at the moment so not working for a few days so i can stay up a little later.
