Hell next time just strain it up and use it on your 1 star jobs or for folks that want blow n go prices. Use it for crack filler on old siding and eaves then wait a day or two and hit it with a top coat. Old paint gone.

I actually batch my mis-tints to make off white colors whenever i can instead of leaving a bunch of weird colors in my mistint pile. A few pennies worth of colorant is a small price to pay to make a more sell-able color.

WTF?

Loaded up the truck with all my acrylic leftovers. Head to the Sherwin contractor store where we buy 60% of our stuff.

Guy rejects ALL the dtm acrylic, etc etc cause it has the Pro Industrial label. Its effin acrylic paint?!?!

So now I have half a pickup box full to take back home.

I can't help but wonder if SW could be behind the whole PaintCare program; and then conveniently re-naming all the same crap to "Pro Industrial" so they don't have to deal with it.

Wow! Someone dug up an old thread here.

Okay, I've said this before.

Dump all your old paint into 5 gallon buckets. Make sure the buckets don't have any of your company's info on it or your personal info. Just peel the mixing labels off.

Got a company in your area that you think is over-rated or you just dislike? Write their name on the bucket lid. Leave next to a dumpster.

Problem solved.
