Top Tips for Acrylic Paints – Number 1

Always replace the top or lid of your acrylic paint.

Acrylic paints dry very quickly so always replace the top back on the tube of paint, or the lid if you are using containers of paint.

If you don’t replace the lid the acrylic paint will start to dry. Once acrylic paint is dry you cannot re-wet it. Therefore it will need to be thrown out as you will not be able to use it in your painting.

Also paint drying in the tube is annoying! The bottom of the tube could be cut off and some paint rescued that way, but it is easier to get into the habit of replacing the top every time you open up your acrylic paint.

Replace the top of the acrylic paint and it will last for a long time.
