Painting Tip Brought to You by the Folks at CPi!

This little pointer is for the artist with an Rx! I use my clean, empty pill bottles to save leftover acrylic paint. When I've finished a painting session, I simply cannot waste that expensive paint, let alone add it to the landfill. If you use this tip, be sure to paint a dab of the color on the lid, since colored pill bottles make it difficult to tell which color paint is inside!
This tip is one of many in The Complete Photo Guide to Creative Painting, available now online and in bookstores.

  1. Wonderful tip!! I'm going to use this one too -When I paint, I always end up with a whole bunch of paint that doesn't get used but can't be put back in the paint bottle. I always hate to throw it out but I never knew how to save it. Now my husband is going to really think I'm nuts when I start asking my parents to save me their empty pill bottles:) Have a great week.
