Prevent paint splatter

Date:27 June 2014 Tags:, ,

I have found that no matter how neatly you work, there always seems to be a pool of wet paint around the rim of the paint tin. When you tap it shut with a mallet, the lid often forces the paint to squirt out on to the floor, or on your clothes.

Here’s my solution to prevent paint splatter: place a plastic shopping bag over the tin to collect the paint splatter, then discard the bag.
