You can buy those milk frothers in the 1 shop and guess how much  :beers:

Cheers John.

Unfortunately that does not follow any more... our local one has been divided into sections, and only about a quarter of it is still items for 1, the rest is all more expensive... not only that, but you have to watch them, as they mix the more expensive items in with the 1 items as well....

Another cheap alternative - fix the paint pot to your Labrador's tail and say " Would you like to go for a walk?"

I remember the Robart Paint Shaker being advertised all over the place years ago.  Seems it's still around and available in the US.

Interesting alternative:  attach a small clamp to a jigsaw and hey presto!

Further to your jigsaw idea I've had a tin of Humbrol enamel strapped to a 1000 piece wooden hand cut picture of "The Haywain". The paint doesn't seem to be getting mixed very well. Do I increase the piece count or should I find a less peaceful scene?
 I have a 1500 piece card die cut picture of a Maserati, would this be more 'active'?

Help please!

I think you will need something a bit more choppy, like a boat on a rough sea scene, or maybe a puzzle of a Salvador Dali painting, after all, his paints seem to slide around.
