I bought some GW Paint about 4 or 5 years ago. I never really did much with them until just recently when me and some friends got back into 40k. I brought out the paint set and some of the paints seem ok but around the edges they are getting rubbery and alittle thick. Is there anyway I can salvage these paints or should I just get some more?
Just buy new ones. You'll have a long uphill fight against the state of these things. I guess you could try to use them until you buy new ones, but I wouldn't risk it.
Three Companies of the 26th Vinancium

If they are not to thick you can put water in the bottle to make them thinner. God Jul
I still have paints from when they were in the hexaganol flip-top containers; and they're still fine
Life is too serious to be taken seriously
A bit of water should do a good job, it'll take some shaking, though. That is, providing the paints aren't already looking like a dried up lake... if they are, toss em, or if you like the containers, clean them out and re-use them. I personally love the old paint bottles...

My brotha, represent! I have the same paints too, hate them but they still work fine.Originally Posted by ozzfan
The best way I have found to judge if they can be revived is to take a toothpick and stick them into the paint if you can't get your toothpick into the paint then it is dead. If you can just add one very small drop of water and stir it with said toothpick, repeat until desired conistancy.

Alright thanks guys! I believe they are salvageable. I can stir them with a toothpick, just seems to clump up a bit on it. I will try adding some water.
So plain water will do it? I am affraid to ruin my small paint collection :blush:
Nearly all of my colors are a little thick but that's no problem for me. Just put some color on the palette and get some water in it. I don't think that's a big difference by using a nonthick color but it works.
