Re: keeping acrylic paint

this must be the ultimate in cheap but it works for a few days. i give the
kids cheap paper plates to use for palettes. if they've used all their paint
they just put the palette in the drying rack for use the next day. if we
want to save the paint, i lay a piece of plastic wrap on top.

keeping the pumps for gallon jugs of chromacryll from getting plugged up.
