My tube of Ti White oil has 2 perforations towards the base... paint is leaking, etc. what a mess.

Any tips?  Will the oil painting keep without drying if I squeeze it in a small glass jar?

It is a 5on/150ml tube, about 2/3 full.

Thanks, Annie
Cheers, Annie

Keep the small glass jar in the freezer and the paint won't dry out.  Take it out about an hour before using.

if it is a metal tube squeeze the paint out into the glass jar, as you do tightly roll the tube up until you are past the tear in the metal. From there you can leave the rest in the tube O0
