Paint Turntable
« on: June 06, 2017, 06:05:40 pm »
If you don't have one I highly recommend getting one!

You can order a cake decorator turn table from Walmart for as little as $6.99.  If you don't want to wait, like me, I got a plastic Lazy Susan at Lowes for $10 and a metal pizza pan for .88cents at Walmart.  The Lazy Susan I got is 10" across and the metal pan is almost 14" across, big enough for most parts.  Lowes has a bigger one that's around 16" across for $17.

Stop reading my mind! I was just looking around the net yesterday. I was planning on going to Walmart to see if they had any so I don't have to pay or wait for shipping. Thanks for the info.

Walmart doesn't have them in the store, at least where I am.  Lowes has the Lazy Susan's...

and you just put the model on the turntable in order to paint it? That's the way?
A metallic one?

I have a roll of brown packing paper that I just rip off a piece to put on the turntable and then I spray the part on that.

I used a lazy susan simply because Walmart didn't have the cake turner in the store.  You can order them online for $6.99 though.

The only reason I recommended Lowes is because one they have them cheap ($10), and two because it was local and I didn't have to wait for it to come in the mail or pay shipping charges. 

All these items people are showing are great options though :)

Thanks a lot to all of you for the advice
Let's go to see what similar is in French cooking supplies shops... ;)
