Tip of the week..........

and shame on me!

People, always wipe the tops of your paint tubes before you put the cap on...

Yeah, I know, we've all seen poor Vincent with his ear in a sling, driven to paint, surrounded by oozing paint tubes, all with the tops off. NO! That stuff costs money!

I spent an hour today sorting this lot out! If your tops are a little reluctant to come off, dip the tube, cap end, in a basin of very hot water (if you can put your finger in its not hot enough). This will soften the plastic cap just enough so you can GENTLY remove it.

Tip number 2. NEVER lend your paints to your daughter!
