Old Paint

:confused: Can anyone help me with an answer to this? How old can paint get (the point that it is no longer usable). I have 5 gallons of latex that I started to use about 4 years ago and then gave up on the project. Is it still usable if I remix it properly? Thanks very much.

As long as it's not been stored in extremes of heat/cold and not moldy, foul smelling or coagulated, you should be able to mix and continue using. If you do not have a mixing wand for a drill, get one, as simple hand stirring isn't going to cut it.
