    Can you mix up paint and use it later if sealed in a airtight container! For Small projects?Just starting out, my husband got me latex semi gloss, paint, very grainy, using a small item I got from Goodwill. Help If I mix one cup of paint, can I seal it up and use it later?

      @Deni Weston I typically store my mixed up paint in empty jars and mason jars. There is paint that I mixed up close to two years ago and it is still useable. My tips would be to store the paint in a cool (but not cold place) and out of direct light. Hope you enjoy your painting project!

    One question before I try: do I use latex paint? Does the "sheen" matter? Thanks!
