Liquin hack—for anyone who uses it

Tired of half the bottle discoloring and drying up? A couple of years ago I ordered some empty aluminum paint tubes and used a small funnel to transfer the Liquin into one. I store the tube upright to prevent it from seeping through the cap. I only use small amounts, and my two or three year old Liquin is still in perfect, original condition!


Hi Connie,
This sounds like a very good idea. I never knew that one could get empty paint tubes.
Where did you get them from? Thanks for this good tip.

Google Empty Aluminum Paint Tubes. Amazon has them as well as Dick Blick, Jerrys Artarama, Cheap Joes. All sizes. :wink:

People also use them to save left-over paint on the palette to use as “mud”.
