Quick tip: Extend the shelf life of Tamiya paints

Tamiya's acrylic paints are usually my first choice when it comes to painting a model. Not only do they airbrush well, but their jars are good quality as well. Have you noticed how Tamiya jars are different from other acrylics in a jar? Their lids are different, and these lids require slightly different treatment. But don't worry, with one simple change in  how you handle the lids, you 1) will improve the jar's seal, 2) will clean the lid less often (if ever), 3) won't spend a penny, 4) will extend the life of your Tamiya (and other brands with similar lids) paint.
