    Default Strangest thing in your paint box, and what you use it for.

    So, was putting shoe polish on popsicle sticks today for a project and it got me thinking about the strange things we use for minis. Whats the strangest thing in your paint box and what do you use it for?

    In mine I'd go with oxblood shoe polish, and I use it on wood.

    A Mustard Spoon. (Look one up) I use it for placement of sand etc.. on bases because of its size! Ideal!

    A Mac make up brush for dusting off minis and backgrounds before photos. Also disposable eye shadow applicators for sponge weathering battle damage on 32mm infantry. The ladies at my local make up counter probably think I'm a drag queen

    Pin from an electrical connector (used for connecting electronic brake control units together in a train) that's had a pin green-stuffed into the end. Use it for sculpting and whenever I need to prod anything
