How to do it…

Kentish Gazette Canterbury & District - East Kent Property - - DIYLIVING -

Once the tin is opened, oil-based paints soon de­velop a vis­i­ble ‘skin’ on top, so make sure you re­move it be­fore stir­ring the paint or you will get bits in it, which is very an­noy­ing when you use it. A sim­i­lar thing can hap­pen with wa­ter-based paints, although you won’t be able to see the skin. Keep the lid on tightly as much as pos­si­ble and a skin should not form, but if it does and the paint is full of bits, you could try strain­ing it.
