Painting > Storing

Reynolds Cut-Rite Wax Paper. Place the paint can lid on a sheet of Reynolds Cut-Rite Wax Paper, trace around the lid, and cut a pattern from the wax paper. Lay the wax paper directly on the surface of the paint in the can (letting the wax paper float on top of the paint) and replace the lid. The wax paper creates a barrier, preventing the oxygen in the can from drying up the paint, and helps keep the oil- or water-based paints fresh for months.

Reynolds Wrap. To prevent a layer of skin from forming over the paint surface, set the paint can on top of a sheet of Reynolds Wrap, trace around it, cut out a disc of foil, and place it on the paint surface before sealing the can closed.

Saran Wrap. Place a sheet of Saran Wrap over the open paint can before tapping the lid closed with a hammer. The Saran Wrap improves the airtight seal.

Ziploc Storage Bag. To keep leftover paint fresh, pour the remaining paint into a Ziploc Storage Bag, carefully squeeze out the air, and seal the bag shut. Store the bag in the paint can and tap the lid closed with a hammer.
