I have all those old MM cute little bottles of paint, many are dried up. I just never got into using them, just another waste of money on my part. Glad you got use out of yours!
And I too buy the cheapo paint from Walmart, M 's or J 's if I need some for crafty needs. At least I don't have to feel bad about letting them go to waste.
Whatever happened to the Apple Barrel paints? I used to use those ones all the time and now all I see is the Folk Art paint. I don't like those as much. Do any of you know where to get the old Apple Barrel paints?
