Water Based Paint Reuse Project

We segregate and collect these pots. Pots with usable water based paint are consolidated with other water based paint of a similar colour. After mixing and sieving, this water based paint will then be repotted and given another life!

Freshly remixed water based paint is sold from our workshop.
