Best way to keep paint

I play pump so when I buy a case of paint it lasts me a good month and a bit of play I was just wondering what the best way to keep paint as fresh as possible and relatively dimple free what I do now is press all the air out of the bags and put those little silica packets you get in shoe boxes I steal from kohls lol

Great advice! Never thought about the air in the bag aging the paint faster, but hey ill have to try that one. Also when i have extra paint leftover i just make sure to "rotate" each bag of paint at least 1-2 times a week. By rotate i mean just flip the bag over to a different side than the side that it was previously sitting on, to prevent the paint inside the shell from going solid in one spot or whatever.

I think the key is really where you're keeping your paint. A room with lower humidity and as little temperature fluctuation as possible. Coolers with a little foam in them work well.

If I have a bunch of paint I plan to shoot in the near future (as in it wont sit all winter), I fill my pods ~1/3 full, and put those in a box. I put the box on my stairs and rotate it 90* and move it down a stair (usually pushing it with my foot when I get up every morning). This keeps it fresh, un dimpled, and in a dark, temp controlled enviornment.

If I plan to keep it for several months I put 9 balls in a 10 rnd tube, then into the box and on the stairs.

I keep it in a closet and I lay the bags out flat on something cushioned (bed sheets, pillows, suitcase) so none of the balls are on top of each other and then I rotate the bags every couple of days.
