|My saki cups in a mini-muffin tin|
Case-in-point... my beloved saki cups and other white, ceramic items (like mini-plates). The saki cups started my now-obsession with white ceramic items to be used as holders and mixing-cups for paints. Their only downfall is that they are breakable - and they are heavy, so packing them for traveling is difficult (although I do pack them when I go on artist retreats!).

|My latest addition, a deviled-egg tray|
To make them extra-steady (and easy to move around on my table), I put them all in a mini-muffin tin. I decided I needed a couple of mixing trays and ended up with a nice variety of little white-colored plates which are great - especially for mixing acrylics.
THEN I found the white-colored, deviled-egg tray! PERFECT for mixing small amounts of silk dye or watercolors!! LOVE IT!!

So now I have a fabulous set of white ceramics to use with my paints and dyes. FYI, while I found the saki cups at a thrift store, I have also seen them for-sale at Uwajimayas.
Now I'm off to work on my next silk painting!
ttfn (ta ta for now!)
