Can on the right looks like it just needs a good stir/shake. Typically, paint that has frozen in the past will have a gritty look as though similar to the look of paint that has had sand added to it.

Yep, I say cottage cheese look, but same same. Typically paint can freeze and thaw and be OK...BUT it depends on how long and how solid the freeze. If it looks OK after its thawed, it is. If it looks sandy, or cottage cheesy, its junk.

Frozen paint is what we call ice. Are you talking about paint that has frozen and returned to liquid status?

I have froze many gallons over the past 10 years. The gallon on the right, is typical to what mine look like after a long deep freeze followed by a thaw.

If you were to try to stir that, you will see the bottom has solidified and is way past the point of ever using it. If you were to strain it, you would be not getting a full body paint IMO.

Thanks for the pic! I hope Wills believes you now!

Probably depends on the state when froze. If uniform when frozen, it remains either a solid block or cottage cheese. If separated, it can look like that and be solid underneath.

If it mixes in to normal texture, it is fine. Any chunks or solids, then junk it. I would not strain to try to save. Too risky.

Without a shake that can on the right is just paint that's been sitting, That's what paint looks like that's been sitting at any temp.

And if anyone hints that Ramsden is motivated by greed or other immoral motives, I will place them on the permanent ban list.

It is simply a discussion of what happens to paint when it freezes, how do you know if it is bad, etc.

After reading all this, plus the cr@p from the other thread, I'm just glad I live where paint never freezes.

Yeah it's a PITA having to haul the WB coatings out of the van at night into the garage. I hate realizing at midnight that I forgot to haul in the stuff. Then I have to go out in my Pj's and a head lamp and freeze my butt off.

I don't worry about caulking as much, but I probably should. At least it's a lot less expensive than paint.

Ditto haha. It freezes over here, but maybe a handful of times in December and that's it lol. Left in the garage is usually good enough.

Sounds like a pain. If I was in your environment I would invest in a small ceramic heater for the van to be left over night. Done deal.
