My Martha Stewart Crafts Vintage Decor paint has clumps in it! What should I do?
Over time, that is perfectly natural. As air becomes trapped in the top portion of the paint bottle (after it has been opened and paint used) a paint skin may form.
With each paint use, it is best to remove the top skin before stirring the paint.
