No-drip pouring for liquids

If you're pouring liquids such as oils, this restaurant supply device might help keep things neater.

You've seen it holding syrup at brunch restaurants. Can you also help keep your studio cleaner and avoid drips at spills when pouring oils and other liquids?

How Much is Left?

If you're lucky enough to get materials in a clear or semi-transparent container, here's a simple way to keep an eye on how much you're using. 

Every week (or depending on your studio, every day or every month), place a tick mark on the container showing how much is left. This barrel of oil went from being 2/3 full on April 8th to 1/3 full on May 20. 6 weeks to use one third of a barrel, so I can predict I have about 6 weeks left until I run out, around June 1. 

I'll be contacting the supplier today to let them know my expected date for restocking. I can confirm pricing and lead time for restocking this item.
