I Like Old Pactra Paint

I have several bottles of Pactra paint I bought in the very early seventies, maybe even the late sixties, and, over the years, they have sat for pretty long periods of time between uses.

Every time I have looked at them after sitting all that time, the paint looks like it would be totally unusable, having separated into the typical layers of solvent and pigment sediment.

But, every time, if I shake the bottle long enough, the couple of BB's I always put into bottles of paint, eventually come loose and everything mixes back together and the paint is perfect.

I haven't always had that luck with Testors.
