Acrylic Paint Storage - Easy to See Colour!
I always have a mess of paint, and sometimes because I cannot find one, I buy another and end up with numerous containers of the same colour - which is not bad if it is a colour you use often, but if its puce?!?!?!
My mess of paint.
Cans and a roll of tack paper ( self adhesive)
Measure your can
Cut strips of self adhesive tack paper
cut each strip to the right size to go around your cans
roll onto can
Cut more paper when you run out - or get more cans!
I put the paints in cap first so I can easily see what colours of paint I have. I am not quite finished as we need to eat more canned food before I can be done, need 5 more but think I will do 10, now that I can see them all, I want more colours!
I added this picture after the fact.. I needed 2 bigger cans and so used a large coffee can, and cut the metal rim off, papered it the same way and presto, a can for 6-8 ounce paints!
- Empty cans
- Self adhesive paper
