Here are some ideas for what to do with leftover paint:
- Keep Painting! Use up the paint and then just let the can dry and then recycle or dispose of it.
- Fill the can with kitty litter or other absorbent material. After the paint dries, you can dispose of it.
- Give it to someone or someplace like a school or theater.
- Save it for later. Just cover the opening with plastic wrap and make sure the lid fits securely, then turn the paint can upside down. This creates a tight seal and keeps the paint fresh to use again. It also helps to transfer the paint to a smaller can.
