Default Prismacolors

I am so excited! I just got my mail and I received a set of 48 Prismacolor pencils from my Mom as an early b-day present!!! But I have a dilemma that I was hoping one, or many, of you wonderful and wise SCS'rs can help me with...
I have a friend who is willing to share her Gamsol with me, but I need to know what kind of container to put it in. I don't really know how to use this stuff yet, so I want to store and use this correctly. What is your best method? TIA for your help!!!!

I have found the best way to use and store my Gamsol is in the smallest GladWare container--snack size or something,

I put an inexpensive make-up sponge (wedge style) into the bottom of the container and put in enough Gamsol to completely saturate the sponge with a tiny amount covering the bottom.

When not in use I keep it tightly sealed.

While using, I try to keep the lid on top , not sealed, but just covering the container.

I am better able to control the amount of Gamsol on my blending stumps by touching the stump to the surface of the well saturated sponge.

You might want to consider going to a dollar store and get one of those empty plastic bingo daubers. It is perfect. Just make sure to label it as gamsol!

I used a coupon once at Michael's when there wasn't anything else I wanted--bought a cheap little bottle of stamp cleaner with a dauber top. Came home, dumped it out, and rinsed/washed it *really* well. I let it dry a few days and added my odorless mineral spirits. Works great, and cost me about $1.50.

I have to agree with those who've suggested the bottle with the dauber top....easy to use and no worries about tipping it over or spilling it![IMG]//www.splitcoaststampers.com/forums/images/icons/icon12.gif[/IMG]
