Painting Tips




Paint Cans

Sealing a Lid

How do you minimize the evaporation of paint or varnish that's kept in a store-bought can? With the lid on securely, turn the can upside down for just a second or two, then return the can right side-up. This coats the entire inside top surface of the can with a thin film, therefore, helping to seal the lid.

After your next paint job, wipe the paint can's lip, and lid clean. Close the lid tightly and store the can upside down. This old painter's trick keeps the air from entering the can and prevents a surface skin from forming on the paint.

Shelf life

Many stains, paints, and clear finishes have a limited shelf life. It's a good idea to label a half-empty can with the current date. Next time you need to use the finish, you will have a written record of how long it's been sitting on the shelf.

Paint can trick

To keep paint from drying into the top lip of can, get a nail & hammer and put holes around the indented lip of the can. When you are using the paint, brush off the excess on the side of the can and it will flow back into the can. Try it, it is a great help.
