Due to the move I have a house full of boxes , tools , TV's ,radiograms all waiting to be put in their place, well I saw a tin of paint and I noticed the lid was not fully on so I gave it a tap with a hammer and out squirted a stream of white paint and where do you think it landed?.
Hmm yep on my grill cloth of my Kriesler!
Haha. I forget the words I used ,but I couldn't say it on here anyway!

I don't think I'd forget the words I would have used but they would have been limited to two or three and repeated a few times. Shock

Reminds me of a guy I know who you never want to be around paint. I have lost count of the number of times he's dropped, or knocked over a can of paint. If there's a can of paint anywhere near him, the outcome is inevitable. Told me one day "I'm no good with liquids". I said that might be the understatement of the century.

Water based Acrylic not so bad, if it dries Metho will destroy it. NB. It also attacks Nitrocellulose finish.

I've had the bottom rust out of paint tins and leave a trail of paint from the shelf to the bench before I noticed it.
Why don't they use plastic containers??

Safe in the mixer with all the shaking.
Many mixer's are very old in work shops.
But it was my boo boo, normally I would put a rag over it and then tap it.
Good news it all came off the grill cloth though
