Have you heard about the global alignment of Chalk Paint®️ by Annie Sloan happening through out 2019 in regards to the containers of paint transitioning from quarts to litres? One extra bonus is that the litre containers are 1.8 ounces larger and we sell them for the same price as the quarts. But the tins are different now and the lids, well, personally, I feel they are a little quirky and need a gentle hand (and patience) to open otherwise- you are going to warp and bend them, which is not cool for storage.
OPENING: The new lids of the litres takes a little different approach to opening. You will want to use a paint can opener or the blunt edge of a tool, like a spoon possibly. Carefully wedge the edge under the white outer perimeter of the lid all the way and then slowly and gently …..as you turn the container of paint in a circle, torque the opener. Wedge the opening as you go around the top, but you will need to go around the top a couple times possibly. Do not force it open and do not bend the outer white “wing” part of the lid up.
CLOSING: Before replacing the lid back o to the tin, take a minute and clean the reservoir with some paper towel and wash the bottom of the lid clean using warm water. Dry it off and then set it back on the top. Doing this will prevent paint drying all clumpy around the lid and then, flaking and falling into your paint the next time you open the can. Now, to close the lid, do NOT bother using a hammer or mallet because they will warp the lid. Just use the cushy part of your palms like the video shows.
