We’ve got sample pots and we’re not afraid to use them

You may or may not be familiar with paint sample pots. But seriously, have you been living under a rock? They're the small containers of paint that you can have tinted in your colour shortlist; that is, all the colours you’ve narrowed down in the pursuit of finding the perfect colour or colour scheme. While these little pots might seem insignificant at first glance, they can actually be quite useful in a number of different ways.

Here are a few of the different ways you can use a sample pot:

Testing Colours

The most obvious use for a sample pot is to test a colour before committing to a full-sized can of paint. By painting a small area with the sample pot, you can get a better idea of how the colour will look in your space. This is particularly helpful if you're trying to choose between a few different shades.

Touching Up Small Areas

If you have a small scratch or chip in your paint, a sample pot can be a quick and easy solution. Just use a sample pot paint brush to touch up the affected area with the matching colour from your sample pot.

Painting Small Projects

Sample pots are also great for painting small projects, like picture frames or accent pieces. Since you don't need much paint for these types of projects, a sample pot is the perfect size.

Creating Custom Colours

If you're feeling creative, you can use sample pots to mix your own custom colours. Just experiment with different combinations until you find the perfect shade.

Practicing Painting Techniques

If you're new to painting or trying out a new technique, sample pots can be a great way to practice without using up a lot of paint. You can use them to try out different brush strokes, blending techniques, or even stencilling.

Overall, sample pots are a versatile and handy tool to have in your painting arsenal. They're inexpensive, easy to store, and can be used in a number of different ways. So next time you're at the paint store, be sure to pick up a few sample pots and get creative!
