Tips for Removing Stuck Paint Tube Caps

Keep a small pair of pliers or some nutcrackers handy for easing off stuck caps. Or place a clothes pin around the cap, hold firmly and twist.
 Use a small piece of non-slip rubber shelf liner to get a grip on the top of the tube. It works better than pliers and doesn’t damage the cap.
 If you can’t get the cap off, snip off the bottom of the tube to get the paint then close it again with a bulldog clip.
 Invert the tube and soak it for a few minutes in a cup of hot water.
 Apply Vaseline around the top of the tube or inside the threads of the cap before you put it back on to prevent sticking.

Our Society Christmas party is a great way to ease into the festive season. Please make a note that the party will begin at 6:00 pm—one hour earlier than our regular meeting time. If you can help with set-up please arrive at 5:00 pm.
