How do you store your finishes, particularly varnish? The last three cans, I had to dispose of nearly half of a can of each because it had congealed. The last can of Arm-R-Seal, I even used Bloxygen but ran out and it gelled before I could get another can.
I really don’t want to buy in pints because it is so much more expensive (Qt – $14.99, Pint $11.99), but I suppose it would be cheaper than throwing half a quart out each time. Does anyone use additional containers to store your finish in smaller quantities – I am thinking of 8 oz. mason jars and dividing each quart into four 8 oz. containers. I did this with some Satin Arm-R-Seal, using 8 oz. poly bottles and it seems to be working – but filling the small neck bottles is a pain!!!
Any suggestions will be gladly accepted.
