tips on storing the left over acrylic paints

 When i started painting with acrylics I could not figure  out a way to save the squeezed out paint because it dries out fast unlike oils, so I was looking for a solution
On searching the web, i found a way to store it i've not tried it yet but thought of sharing it
If we have some paint left at the end of a painting project just remove the dried layer and scrape out the rest and store it in  a sealable jar or even a ziploc cover completely air tight ,so after  a few projects we might have quite a bit of paint in different colors,just mix up all the colours and we can use it to underpaint a canvas in a new project
