How do you get a small stainless steel nut into a bottle of Vallejo? I've thought about trying to remove the plastic nozzle piece, but I've been afraid to try because I don't want to break something.

Thanks in advance!


Thanks for the tip on the Vallejo bottles! Follow-up question - what size stainless steel nut? I'm going to have to make a trip to the hardware store... or should I stir the paint in a Vallejo bottle?

Just remembered to try my Oster massager with a bottle of Floquil which had been sitting for over three years. It worked beautiful - a minute or so and the paint was thoroughly stirred.
