Tried googling this but just got load of girly make up websites, been decorating our house recently but all the tins of paint have a layer of skin on the top when mixed in it is all lumpy and makes a mess of our walls. What's going on?

Its where the air has got into it (like custard)
Strain the paint first (use a pair of tights or stocking) :thumbsup:

As snowtiger said, sorry to sound sad but they had this problem on DIY SOS last week and they said all you have to do is pass the paint through a pair of tights or stockings (whichever take your fancy).

who said anything about gloss....some of them have been stored in the shed, but bought a brand new one from store and it had thick layer of paint on top can't we take back and say look this is useless? The tights suggestion looks best.

You know how to avoid the skin on Custard? You cover the whole of the top with clingfilm then remove it before next using the custard!!!!! Just a randon fact for you there.

Not sure it would work on paint though:?

if I could put it on when the paint first goes in the tin, might work but unfortunately I don't think the manufacturers would be too happy with me doing that :whistling:
