Last night I went to a new barbecue restaurant here in my small town in North Carolina. I asked for extra barbecue sauce with my take-out order and it came in little plastic containers--with little lids! These are perfect for saving premixed colors. This is how I save my mixed darks/blacks. Also useful for pouring projects, and for when you need to mix a lot color to cover large surfaces. I also manged to grab some little plastic pill containers while my husband was in the hospital, which are perfect for masking fluid. So keep your eyes open, watercolor artists, for opportunities to scavenge!

 ;D I did the same thing while up with mum. Unfortunately they are also good for mixing small batches of epoxy! So now I must keep on the lookout and guard my limited supply!  :knuppel2:
Cheers, Val
