pouring paints

OK, this may be the stupidest question of the year, but does any one have any tips, secrets when pouring paints, or primers from a gallon can into the mixing cup, heres my dilemma, I open a brand new can of say,, primer and I pour it in the mixing cup, but then here comes bout a pint running down the side of the can, is there a easier way , as you know this stuff is expensive to waste..

Check you tips of the day. Put a piece of two inch masking tape around the edge of the can, so part of it goes past the top to use as a pour spout. You may also look for a pour spout at your supplier. They make some that snap on the can. Don't forget to punch some holes in the groove on the top of the can, so any paint that gets into the groove will drain back into the can.

I usually pour my gallon of paint off into quart cans right after
mixxing it real good. It lasts better for me that way and keeps it more
consistent. But a gallon last me a long time, I only do small panel repairs.
The tape around the lip works real good.

I can tell you what NOT to do! I thought it would be a good idea to seperate the gallon into 4 qt containers so I used 4 clean Mason type glass jars, hey they pour clean, easy to seal and you can see the level inside. I still have that big red spot on the garage floor right in front of the door
