Why buy an Ouloum Project's portable paint station instead of another similar product?
There are several answers to this question. The Ouloum Project's portable paint station was designed by and for people practicing the miniature figurine hobby. For this reason, it takes all situations into account:
It is light. Our goal being to facilitate transporting your painting and sculpting equipment, that goes without saying.
It is ergonomic, for example: its workplan is rounded at the front, so as not to hurt your wrists while you paint or sculpt.
It's all in one, with its own integrated carrying bag, a quality battery, its own adjustable lighting, and so on.
It requires almost no setup time, all you have to do is open it and start painting.
It is autonomous, you will not have to take everything out of its drawers to put everything on a table, since it also provides you with its own surface. Also, you can place it on your legs in order to really paint anywhere, anytime, even in a park or in your swimming pool.
It is durable, made of sturdy plastic and hydrophobic foams and fabric to resist water, shock, humidity, and much more for an optimal lifespan.
It takes up little space, because the goal is twofold. First, to be able to paint together with friends without cluttering the entire living room. Second, to store it in a corner without cluttering your living space when you are not painting.
