Envelope Preparation

What happens if you are in the middle of airbrushing some T-shirts and you have a little paint in the paint pouch but not enough to complete the t-shirt you are making? Well, you whip out some blank envelopes and start playing. These will be the base of my Envelope a Day for this this week.

Of course, I am bummed because I just found out that the company that made this product is discontinuing it's production. The company is Testors (which is known for its airbrushing supplies). The hobby line was called ColorArtz.

I have really enjoyed working with this product line so now I will have to go and scour the internet to stockpile remaining supplies. While usually I don't mind doing so, I get so frustrated with opportunists that feel they can jack up the prices knowing that the materials have been discontinued. The 1/2 fluid ounce pouches usually sold for about $4. On ebay, people are offering them for $15.

So let's see what I can do with these envelopes this week.

Oh no! What a bummer! I wonder if there is a way to make your own pouches? Or recycle the pouches and refill it with ink? Love the envelopes!
