Ok gang I have a question. When you buy paint in smaller sizes such as quart or pint and you want to pour in your mixing cup, how do you keep the paint from spilling all over and going Into the lip of the can? Is there some kind of ez pour lid you can place on top to allow the paint to pour without spilling? Mahalo for your input!

the plastic pour thingy works BUT you have to clean it :knockout: I like the tape way.
really I just usually pour it right out of the can then I punch a few holes in the top of the can were the paint collects so it can drain back into the can. then wipe with a rag or paper towel then hammer the lid on.
