We’ve all been there. You get down to the last bit of paint in the tube and would really rather not waste it- there’s always more than you think in there! I have found that cutting off the tip, cutting down the side and cutting off the bottom allows me to get every last bit of paint out.
But this of course, really got me thinking. There’s still a little more in there and since I am an abstract expressionist painter who’s main focus is texture, why not find a different way to use up that last bit in a different way (or two?) Here are the results:
I couldn’t be happier with the results, despite my paint being gone. Always a little bittersweet when you finish up a tube, am I right? xo, Ev.
