Graste Containers for the Art Room!
By HS Art
I bought these containers to store our classroom gum erasers in them and they work great. The containers keep the gum erasers soft, easy to keep track of at the end of class 'so they don't grow legs and walk away', and makes storage easy! The containers are much easier to use verses little plastic bags for the gum erasers.
perfect in size

i really like the size of it!Sometimes I mixed more pigment for background or later correction, and the containers just works perfect for me.

strong, leakproof, low evaporation
By Cat from Belmont
I used to use other kinds of small lidded containers for storing glaze and other mixtures for my ceramics, but I have come to prefer these. They have a lower evaporation rate and the cap is easier to open and close firmly than the ones with a completely removable lid. They don't leak, and they keep the contents wet for prolonged periods. They are not totally transparent, but they are clear enough to do their job well. My only gripe, the same as another customer made earlier, is that Blick should give the dimensions of these cups in the "product specs" link. Given the care with which the company usually gives important information like this, I don't understand why it hasn't been done. Maybe they'll address this lack in the future.
from So. California
I have been using ½ table spoon size (or 7.5 ml) ones (which is unfortunately not available at Blicks at the moment- hint-hint!) for quite some time while working on a painting project. I mainly use airbrush, and I save the paint that left in the airbrush in these little containers rather than washing it off every time I change colors. I often mix colors, so I like saving paints I've mixed until I'm done with the project.The plastic is clear, so it's easy to see what's inside, and I like the fact that the lid is not separate from the cup. I was initially concerned if the plastic hinge would break off too easily, but I'm pleasantly surprised by the durability. Lids snap on very tightly, so you don't have to worry about paint leaks. The plastic does not stain, either. Paints wash off very easily.I recently purchased 1 oz and 2 oz containers to replace glass jars with screw on lids I've been using to mix master recipe paints. Cleaning glass jars is not as easy as cleaning these plastic ones, and they take up more storage spaces than just tossing plastic containers into a bucket.It's a bit pricy side for containers of this category, but I like this brand the best. Mr. Blick, would you consider a volume discount??? I would personaly like some assortment size package as well...
Secure storage for small items
from Chi-town burbs
These cups are sturdy. The lids fit well but are not difficult to remove - sometimes an issue with snap lids! I purchased a couple of these at a Blick store, and am grabbing some more online.

Sorry Web Cata;og
from Soutern Illinois
The catalog page had no dimensions, just size in ounces. I found later it might be helpful to go to the LA CONs wwebsite and you can get close to what you want/might get. I can order again and might get what I want. That would be another [$]for another 10 containers plus whatever it cost to return the old ones.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
