Mega Tubes of Oil Paint!

I paint big, so I need lots of paint. I go through tubes like crazy, so I buy my paint in caulk tubes. Caulk tubes! I look like a construction dude when I’m loading my palette, caulk gun in hand. But, hey, it saves time and money, and the paints stay fresher longer. I . . . → Read More: Mega Tubes of Oil Paint!
