Clumps and flakes in 2 oz paint
I have a very large project to basecoat in acrylic. My bottles were sealed, but I have clumps and flakes of dried paint appearing on my surface. I have shaken the bottles, but not more vigorously than usual. I tried putting a piece of stocking between the cap and the bottle to hopefully catch the flecks before I dispense the paint on the surface, but it was very difficult to then get the paint out. Since I will have to use perhaps 5 bottles of paint to do the base coating, is there an easy way to get the paint clean? I am seeing several flecks on my surface so far and I have barely started!
Thank you for any suggestions!
