Tip # 1 :: Paint and Pages

Today I thought I'd share a little painting tip.  I have discovered a nifty way to store leftover paint.

When I'm using acrylic craft paint for a project, I use an empty plastic container as a water dish and the lid as a palette.

Then, when I'm finished, I dump the water and if there's extra paint left on the lid...
I just leave it right where it is...  and put the lid back on the container.

The paint should be ready for next time and if your container has a good seal, it can last for quite a while.  If there's a lot of extra paint on the lid, I'd recommend storing it upside down so that the paint won't drip down into the tub.

Another thing that I'd like to share is the brand new Charcoal & crayons Facebook page.
The link to it can be found in the sidebar as well as below.
We have some exciting projects in the works which I'll be sharing updates about on the page.
I'd love to see you there!

Thanks for dropping by.


  1. I'm your facebook fan. :) Love the tip! I have a lot of butter containers so that would be perfect. No wasted paint.

  2. Great tip and saves wasting a lot of paint. Thanks!

  3. Great tip! Great way to recycle those old containers, too. Thanks for sharing.

  4. I started on COPD Herbal treatment from Ultimate Life Clinic, the treatment worked incredibly for my lungs condition. I used the herbal treatment for almost 4 months, it reversed my COPD. My severe shortness of breath, dry cough, chest tightness gradually disappeared. Reach Ultimate Life Clinic via their website . I can breath much better and It feels comfortable!

  5. I was diagnosed as HEPATITIS B carrier in 2013 with fibrosis of the
    liver already present. I started on antiviral medications which
    reduced the viral load initially. After a couple of years the virus
    became resistant. I started on HEPATITIS B Herbal treatment from
    ULTIMATE LIFE CLINIC ( in March, 2020. Their
    treatment totally reversed the virus. I did another blood test after
    the 6 months long treatment and tested negative to the virus. Amazing
    treatment! This treatment is a breakthrough for all HBV carriers.


Thank you for your thoughts.
