These handy pipettes are 3.5 ml plastic droppers made of a white, translucent, chemically inert, non-toxic polyethylene material. Pipette has markings on the side to show each 1/2 ml increment (for reference, there are 5 ml in a teaspoon).
We use pipettes to transfer drops of water or binder to grinding plate for pigment mixing. Artists do not generally work in sensitive environments, so these pipettes are not sterile.
They are also useful for micro-measuring liquids, fragrances, essential oils, cosmetics materials, candle-making colors, as well as for animal feeding (such as tiny kittens and puppies), cleaning air-brush equipment, adding extra color and/or flavor to cupcakes and fruit, and even (minus liquid) to pouf air into sewing machines and sergers to get that annoying bit of lint.
Clean pipettes by squishing the bulb several times in clean water. Keep a small cup of clean water next to the egg yolk cup, to clean the pipette between each use. If pipette gets too dirty, just recycle them.
Five pipettes for $0.85, ten pipettes for $1.60
