vortex paint mixer for miniaturesTired of dried and clumpy paints? This heavy-duty vortex paint mixer shaker for miniatures is fun AF and busts most paint clogs!

We’ve tried out other mixers before and had been a little let down by the results. During our search for a better product, Rob was introduced to this mixer through another trusted company’s social media page, Schooner Labs. Based on their glowing recommendation, we knew we had to give it a try.

The Vortex paint mixer shaker for miniatures paint did not disappoint!

We’ve had some time to use this thing now, and we love it. Today Rob is going to show us just how powerful the LabGenuis Vortex Mixer is!  With these little guys, you can also take your paint tech to the next level and dropper bottle all your Citadel / Games Workshop paints.

LabGenius MI0101001 Mini-Vortex Paint Mixer Shaker, Blue(Top)/Clear(Body)

The most expensive mixer we tried, it’s probably also the most durable of any we have tested- lasting for nearly three years so far at this point!

LabGenuis VortexRight out of the box Rob picks up the mixer with both hands, this thing has some serious heft to it, more than you would think. The entire grey bottom layer is a metal plate. The top blue rubber piece may attract hairs and dust, but other than that this product appears to be super easy and simple to use.

Rob used some mixing aids from Army Painter which are just small metal balls that agitate and help mix better.

This is about half the price of the LabGenius one Rob (check out Rob’s video on how it has held up after a year here) has been using for a while now, but Buyer Be Warned there are no reviews as of yet, and ours came non-functional from Amazon.
