Paint Expiration

Anonymous asked 10 years ago

I have paint in the can that has been sitting for a few years. Is this product still good to use?

Typically no…

If it doesn't smell bad (rotten), or has mold growing in the can and is still liquid then the paint is OK. If the paint is really thick it can be thinned with the same solvent as the base; water for acrylic/latex and mineral spirits for oil base.
