Default Heads up, blank painters

My local Walmart is closing out Apple Barrel paints for $.50 for a 2 oz. bottle.
The pickings were kind of slim today, but I managed to find 16 different basic colors for painting the insides of blanks, and the brass tubes.
It is an acrylic based paint, and dries in a few hours.
Cleans up with warm soapy water.

I asked the clerk why they didn't have any paint today & she said they are selling it off to bring in new stock. I don't know if this is nationwide or just local, but it's worth checking out if you are going to reverse paint your blanks & tubes.
Your secrets are safe with me.
There's a good chance I wasn't listening anyway.
