      Might I make some suggestions?

      -Really focus on the acrylic mixing.
      This is where your target market should be. Miniature painters drop hundreds of dollars per year on tiny bottles of acrylic paints!
      Miniatures paint setup. Probably close to $1,000 in acrylic paints:

      -Build a (name searchable) paint range mix chart into the app based on the top acrylic paint manufacturers like Citadel, Vallejo, and The Army Painter. Being able to mix a bottle of Screaming Skull, Pallid Wych Flesh, Straken Green, or Wild Rider Red in seconds would help you sell many thousands of these units to miniature painters.
      Here are some sample color charts:

      -Consider washes and airbrush mixtures. Like I mentioned above, miniature painters will buy up these units if you have such options.

      @Scott D , especially :) And to answer your question, yes, you can use standard dropper bottles in the Picolor. But if you can`t find the right size, you will always have the opportunity to purchase extra bottles through our campaign.

      The video looks great and the mixes look fantastic and match the colours perfectly. Awesome.

      Are you going to make avaliable extra bottles for purchase after so we may keep our custom colours ready to use? Or can we use standard dropper bottles in the picolour?
