I bought a small bottle of base paint and a small bottle of clear coat (as touchup paint) for my Honda CRV. The bottles came with scotch tape around the lid cover. After I used it once, I sealed the bottle lids tightly but did not reapply scotch tape to the lid cover. I kept them in my closet.
Fast forward a few months. This week I took them out to use again but the base coat had coagulated. The silver had sunk to the bottom, while the clear part stayed at the top. It seems some air may have seeped inside the bottle.
Is that it? Do I have to throw it away and ordered a new bottle? Is there any way to make the paint useable at this point?
