What a great idea!  Question though - when you say let dry overnight, do you mean that it will actually dry to a tablet form, like the dry paint palettes?  If so, then this would be a great way to reuse/refill empty plastic palettes.

If not, how do you store them?

Yes, they really do completely dry!  I found them easier to work with when they were still slightly damp.  I think if you just added a few drops of water to each one before you start painting that I would "soften" them up.  I would definitely be great to refill palettes.

I was totally going to say this, but also I like the idea of the bottle caps, because you run out less frequently.

I was also thinking if you hot glue the caps to something first (I was thinking a cheap-o ruler, but you could even glue them into the cardboard egg carton) then it might be easier to push your brush around in it without having to hold it and then getting your fingertips all painted.

My 11 yr-old DD loves to paint and craft, so we are definitely doing this.  Thanks for the info!

Very clever idea to make your own supplies! But I don't think I have the time!
