Default Empty Paint Pots?

Does anybody know a cheap source of empty paint pots? I know GW used to sell them for an arm and a leg. I'm wanting to pick some up so I can pre-mix and store thinned paint for the air brush I just picked up.

5pcs-200pcs Empty Plastic Dropper Bottles Eye Liquid Screw Cap Secure Lids 10ml | eBay

I use these for mixed paints and a cartridge refill syringe for measuring and moving the paint around, very handy indeed!

its about 4 for five bottles but I think they get cheaper the more you buy.

You could try these

Tamiya Color Acrylic Paint Mixing Jar Empty Bottle 10ml | eBay

Screw top lid and the Tamiya bottle seal really well, I've never had a pot dry out. They also screw onto most suction feed airbrushes too which can be handy.

They also have 20ml bottles as well which is close to what Vallejo uses. 10ml is a bit small.
