Watercolor Refills

Let me just say - I ADORE Prang watercolors! The colors are juicy and fabulous and the 16-color sets have all the roygbiv colors plus the intermediates. PLUS they are refillable which saves me some precious budget money!
But storing all those refills got a little disorganized and you know I can't stand THAT! So, here's what I came up with. I'm using reusable plastic containers with lids from Target. I think they were less than $3 for 5 containers. Each one is clear, so it is easy to see when a specific color gets low and I need to reorder some. And I've labelled each one and stored them in one of my storage boxes. Easy Peasy! Take a look... 

Doesn't it amaze you when it takes you so long to come up with something so simple?!


  1. I tried this too. If there is humidity in the container they will stick together so you may want to stick a silica gel packet in each container.

  2. I do that too! I hate that I can only order yellow green and green blue from Dick Blick...
