Title: paints
Post by: abreese on August 10, 2018, 07:58:25 AM
 :-X can anyone tell me if acrylic paints have a shelf life?.
I have several pots of a well known brand some of them are now like coloured water,no body in the paint.
no amount of stirring will bring it back to a workable paint?

 Any water based paint is affected by frost it separates out and goes watery .That could be one of the answers.
