Do you store your paints upside down?
Hi Everyone! I haven't been here in a while--I've been gardening and taking pictures. But all it took was one chilly night (last night) to get me thinking about cozy things like rug hooking and decorative painting. So while I was at Michael's this morning I looked for a way to store my little bottles of paint.
I had in mind a carousel. I'm sure I've seen them in the past, but they don't carry them now. They didn't have anything specific to these paints except for plastic drawer liners that hold the paint bottles upside down.
I didn't buy those, but I picked up a Victorian looking hatbox at TJ Maxx, and thought I'd store the bottles in that. As it turns out, I'm going to have to get a bigger hatbox because my 70 bottles wouldn't fit. (Gee, for someone who paints only occasionally, and not very well, I sure am a sucker for a paint sale. lol)
For now, the smaller hatbox is filled, with the bottles standing right side up. Of course, now I can't see the colors.
Is there any problem associated with keeping the bottles upside down?
Thanks for your help!
