If you paint, here’s a simple way to store the paint tubes. According to the artist Nicholas Egon Jainschigg:
Basically, I just got tired of having my paint tubes festering in drawers, getting gummy from leaking oil and impossible to find when I needed them. The “system” such as it is, is just hanging the tubes up on readily-available “handbag clips” (technically “Binder Clips” so you can Google them) so you can see all the tubes at once and tell what’s there.
Get a board, hammer nails into it, then attach the binder clips to the ends of the paint tubes for easy hanging. It lets you organize and easily access your paint at the same time.
