    Pot ( not for my stew ! 😀 )

    My other half has offered to buy me a pot so I can learn and make my own
    blanks. We have loads of glitters and craft bits I can use inc colours.
    But ask to be pointed in a direction of a good company and recommended Ďpotí
    for around £100ish please.

    If this is to low a budget Iím sure I can guide her with my wallet lmao

    Thanks in advance peeps

    I got mine from here, but the one I got doesn't have wheels.

    Metal clay do them now and that might be a better choice as you can get the resin at the same time.

    Don't forget you will need a compressor.

    I got mine from the same place as Paul, Mine has wheels but I don’t use them.
    It is a top class pot, but Graham, your looking at around £230.
    Kind regards John.

    I got mine from approaching a few local paint sprayers and found one who had one that had only been used once and that was just to blow air! It was a 10l one and was ideal all for just £60. This was just a few weeks ago.

    I bought mine sometime ago now the pricing being approx £150. Main things to look out for IMHO is that if you buy one that doesn't have wheels, it will not stand upright and, due to a concave bottom, is unstable. It is a good idea to make a stand for it and then level the pot.

    Also always loosen and tighten the bolts in the same order and always mount the lid in the same orientation. This forms the seal to the pot rim. Also there is no need to over tighten the bolts. All that happens there is you crush the seal even though mine came with a socking great spanner!!!

    Just my penny's (pennies?) worth.
