Art Tapas – Bite Sized Tips for the Mixed Media Artist – Tip #1 Storage

I am starting a new Web-Video-Series called – Art Tapas – Bite Sized Tips for the Mixed Media Artist.

Art Tapas are short videos (1- 3 mins) that will give some practical tips or advice about anything that is related to tools, art supplies or processes and any Mixed Media or Hobby Artist might appreciate. Lots of times these reflect some mistakes that I made along my journey, so to speak, things that I learned the hard way and sometimes they are just some things that I would have loved to have known when I actually started in Mixed Media.

But without further ado – here is your first Art Tapas

How do you store your acrylic paints? For some this might be obvious but, let’s talk about it, shall we? :)

Art Tapas – Bite Sized Tips for the Mixed Media Artist – #1 Storage from Nathalie Kalbach on Vimeo.

I hope you enjoyed this Art Tapa –  and if you have questions that you would love to have answered in some of the Art Tapas videos- let me know and I might just cook one up for you to nibble on :)

Happy Creating !

    Love this concept of “Art Tapas”, Nat! Great tip! As artists we can appreciate form over function, but if our supplies cannot function we cannot create the form! ;)

    Hehehehh – you left me laughing Nat with your clean and simple ending – you are such a delight. This was so interesting. I had no idea sunlight would dry up paints. Mine are fine but hubby has his setting right in front of a huge window… dear me. Wait until I show him your video!!!! Thanks bunches. j.

    Love the formate! And a great first tip. I don’t have a craft room or craft space so I store everything – including the acrylic paints – in my walk in craft storage. Never had a problem with paints drying up before they’re used up.

    Clean and simple for sure, Nat! And a great tip. I also found this out the hard way, and since storing my paints in an opaque plastic storage tub kept INSIDE my closet, no more dried up paints! Can’t wait to see what other tips you will have for us—-thank you for taking the time to share with us!!!

      Thank you Kathy! That is a great idea too to store them in plastic tubs in a closet- that way you can get the whole thing out when painting. Have a wonderful day!
