Looking after paint

If you use some paint and then want to keep the rest for a future date then you should do the following: When you first open the paint wipe the lid as dry as possible. Then it is best to decant the paint into another vessel while you use it. this prevents the build up of paint on the rim of the tin (as you wipe your brush on it) and also on the lid. After your paint has been in storage for a year or two and is then opened it won’t have gathered chunks of dried paint which then fall into the paint making it difficult to use.
