Storing Craft Paints

February 10, 2009

I store my fabric paint in a cardboard box from some pretzels. Keep the bottles stored upside down and they will be ready when you are. If they get clogged, use a paper clip to unclog the tube. Never waste a drop. I empty the last bit onto a plate and let my preschooler paint with a brush. She mixes her own colors and loves it!

I probably have about 100 bottles of acrylic craft paints and special finishes. I store them in square baskets I bought at the Dollar Store. The baskets are fold-able to flat and about 2 inches taller than the paint bottles.

I keep several small bottles of of acrylic paint on my shelf in a box made from an empty Bisquick box. To save time, I open the bottles of paint and, using my finger, dab a little paint on the top of each bottle. Now, at a glance, I can see what colors I have.

This may seem obvious and simple, but I didn't think of it for sometime, so maybe others haven't thought of it either. I have a lot of bottles of craft paint. I store them in a plastic shoebox type box that has a lid. I put my paints in upside down.

I am trying to find ideas on how to store my acrylic paints. I know they make a metal spinner rack, but I didn't want to spend a lot of money and also wanted something more compact.
