Filters for peanut oil should do the trick.

sounds good. If you could put the paint on a quick chop in a blender, then just pour it into a sealed container, that would be magnificent. To my experience, the best strainer is an old pair of nylons. Do not ask how I know this.

Either is bright.. orange is pretty obnoxious though! This is crayola washable correct... or something similar.. or was this manufacturer specific grenade paint?

Just wondering. Even if it is crayola washable we will probably want to cut it a little with some water, maybe 2 to 3 parts paint to one water... I don't know.. just thinking out loud.

beckers brand (teachers store) yes it should be washable (see lable on side of bottle)
Crayola is twice the price of anything else.
Crayola was 24.00 per gallon
beckers brand was 12.00 per gallon
I'll trade it for the yellow before I leave this Friday.

My local dollar store ( Real Deals) has gallons of peach colored Tempera paint.
It does not specifically say "washable".
They also have 16oz bottles of "washable" kids paint.
The local craft store has 16oz washable kids paint on sale for $1.17 (down from $1.99)

Would either of these be acceptable?

I have a bucket of paintballs that are at least 2yrs old and improperly stored.
I'll bring them also.

The cheap brand of washable paint is better. Please do not bring Crayola, as it tends to stain horribly. Al;so if it does not say washable, it likely is not. If you are bringing old paintballs to be used, I would appreciate if you ran them through a blender first, so we can use the paint. I do have a strainer, so no worries there. As far as color, why worry? get both. The batches tend to be small (16oz of paint to 24-30 oz of water) so we can switch back and forth at will.
Murph, how are those pins coming? we will need one for each grenade we are making. I only have a dozen or so. If somebody can bring teflon tape and a large pair of channel locks, that would be wicked groovy too.
Target, either of the washable kids paint is acceptable. The more the merrier.
