Twins at Birth

Look similar? As soon as I saw this rolling palette stand at Daniel Smith for "only" $139, I recognized it it as nearly identical to my laptop computer stand that only cost me $19 at my local drug store. All i need to do is get a scrap piece of glass cut to fit on the adjustable platform and act as a nice palette surface. If I want to get really fancy, I could use a jigsaw and cut out a hole on the level section of the table and insert a container of some type to put solvent or brushes in.
Huntington Rolling Painting Table
generic laptop stand from "Drug Mart"
My laptop table would work just as well as the fancy artists table and it's a lot cheaper. Of course, it would be really nice to have the real thing (available from Daniel Smith here,), it's sturdy, all wood and made in the USA.
You can check your local department store for the laptop table, I've seen them all over the place. I got mine at Drug Mart, like i said on sale for $19.

Artiscreation Pigment Database updates in progress

Updates are in progress to the pigment database. I decided to do the changes in increments so that the additions will be available soon as they are updated. You may experience minor difficulties, inconsistent appearance or other incomplete changes, so please bear with me during the update process I think the changes will make a better experience for all.
