    Paint labels..

    Post  Guest on Wed Dec 30, 2009 4:13 am

    I have had a problem with the paint bottle labels rubbing off on my paints..as seen in the picture below...




    What I do now is label all my paints with a home made sticker..

    I "borrowed" my wife's circle template from her scrapbooking stuff (about a year ago and see still hasn't noticed) and use a pen blade to cut out pieces of blue tape that are just a tad smaller than the top of the bottle. I then label the tape with the color in the bottle (both the FS number and the color name)





    I have found it works very well and I can find my paints with out pulling everything out.

    That is true but when all the instructions have on them is color FS 36440, what shade of gray is that?
