Stretching Anita's tip on portable w/c paint containers...

For smaller quantities of paints, McDonald's transparent catsup cups are fantastic, and they can be sealed airtight with the lids that come with them. Even quickly drying medium like acrylic stays wet much longer. For larger quantities, the readymade jello cups are great. Ofcourse you will have to finish the jello first :)

Pill Containers
by: Jan

You can also use the pill containers with snapping lids. You can find them at any pharmacy and they come in various sizes and numbers of compartments. This keeps them all together.

sambal containers

For all Dutch painters:
Use the containers of sambal you get with your Chinese food. They are also airtight!
Happy painting

Jello cups
by: J Setchel

These work great, and you can order 2 oz jello shooter cups with lids (125) for about $15 including shipping from Amazon.com . I used to get them from restaurant meals, but we don't eat out tht much anymore so found that ordering a supply will keep me supplied for a very long time.
