Default Marker Storage HELP!

I have all the Marvy Uchida LePlume II markers for watercoloring. My problem is finding a case or a storage system to keep these in order, rather than taking 15 minutes to pull out colors until I get to the right number color. Right now I have them in the Ranger Tim Holtz Cylinders for his distress markers, however its not working out as the LePlume II's are a tad longer than the Distress markers. Is there a zipper case that these would fit in??? HELP!! What's your LePlume II storage ???

I like these bags for my sewing supplies. They are sturdy and inexpensive. You can find them in many different sizes. Not sure if this was the kind of storage you were looking for.

What about this? Not sure if the pens should be store this way, but looks like you can turn it on it's side.

I'm also looking for a zip-type case with elastic, similar to the ones used for storing colored pencils. I wonder if the colored pencil ones would work for markers.

You may want to check Dick Black or other art stores online. I was able to find a handy case with elastic bands to hold my copics; perhaps they have some for other markers as well?
Saw (on Pinterest) where someone was using a wine rack to hold their markers. Imagine a holder that has several partitions for wine; each partition holds a color group.

I store my markers in Zig marker cases. These are the same as what a full set of SU markers are stored in. I don't use the outside case as they sit on a shelf. The markers hang over the edge but they don't fall out. They are the markers to the left.

OT I like your sunny colored space and organization, stamphappy!

Is that a heat tool holster to the right that I see? If so, I have that and love it.

Looking at your space, I realize I am not the only with with a super coloring addiction and it makes me very happy! I thought I was the only hoarder out there and didn't want people to see my space for that reason. I don't need an intervention -- I just need more time for my hobby!

Thanks - yep it's a heat tool holder. I like it but I have to keep it weighted to keep it from falling off. How do you keep stuck to your desk top?

Mine hasn't ever fallen off either surface I use it on - a 1/4" plexiglass (plastic) table top protector on my craft table, and a stainless steel kitchen table. What is your table surface made of? It holds on for dear life.

In case anyone's interested, a glass company cut the plexi and polished the edges for my craft table and Alex tops. A plastics company did the same years before for my desk, but they were more expensive.

My table top is laminate that I bought from a LSS that closed. I going to try a piece of plexi. Thanks so much for the suggestion.

Post back to tell how it goes! No fun to have to weigh it down. I just remembered once it was on granite and it held on tight to that too.

I'm guessing it may not do well with wood or formica, etc.

ETA: The glass store gave me a bunch of little disks - thinner than bump-ons - to put under the plexi so it wouldn't slide on my desk or Alexes.

Unless you have to keep your markers flat, I use the Pampered Chef utensil holder. It's already on a swivel base so it works great for scissors, markers, glue etc and I put my heat tool in the middle and keep it plugged in. Works like a charm
