  1. So last year I moved all my ancient paints into dropper bottles, as it seems a good idea (still does). Then I bought some ball bearing-balls to use as agitators to give the paints a good stir when shaking, as some of them had a tendency to …sediment. And yesterday I noticed a ball.shaped discolouration in some of the bottles….argh. The ball bearings have rusted! So much for prolonging the life of the paint… (The rust does not seem to affect the paint, apart from a slight discolouring in the lighter ones. But I expect it will get worse if I do not do something with it) I must confess I did not see that coming. The ball bearings were supposed to be “stainless steelâ€â€¦ it seems not. Or maybe stainless steel is not that stainless. But anyway. Does anybody here have any experience with this? What to use as agitators, and that will not react with the paint?, The paints really do seem to need something.
