Paint, sorry, thought it was music, right...
A quick squeeze from a Vallejo dropped onto an upturned coat d'arms pot. I also worked out with care you can loosen lids and return the majority of the spare paint to the bottle. I also use the nipple inverted as a pot if I only need a tiny amount.

Yup i do this as well!

I have paints which are at least a decade old, some even older and I have some which I bought at the end of last year and are near done.

I paint figures every day, some 6mm, a lot of 10mm, a few 15mm and a lot of 28mm. Then there are buildings and other terrain.

I probably spend around £10-£30 at every show on paint and I do about 9-10 shows a year.

Then there is brushes ...

Most of mine that are a decade old seem to be solid and unusable!  Sadly, I rarely get to the bottom of a tin but at some point find the paint has solidified.  Spend for this round is £25 and rising.

Tin???

I don't think the forum needs or wants to know you have inverted nipples.  :)

and before you think about it we certainly don't want a photo  ;D
