A great way to make painting less messy and to reuse old baby bottles is to use the bottles as paint jars. Simply cut the tip off the nipple (make a hole large enough for a paintbrush to pass through), and fill the bottle with paint. Then put everything back together with the nipple inverted. The bottles are less likely to spill, and the nipples remove excess paint from the brushes.
