Re: Paint Pots vs. Paints

The pots are wonderful and I haven't found any of them to be too dry. I do wish there were more finishes like Perky, with that bit of sheen. Mmmmm...
The other day I was in the store, looking at the paints and pots.... I told the MA I had trouble squeezing out the right amount from the tubes. She said that was odd, it seemed like such a simple thing. Anyway, as we were checking out different paint colours, I carefully squeezed just a bit from one of the tubes and a bigger blob than I could possibly use came out. The MA very calmly said, "no wonder you said you squeeze out too much." And I was being so careful! I felt very wasteful.
I wish there were more finishes like Perky too. It has just the right amount of shimmer. I really hate those metallic frosts. (On me.)
