I wonder how artists knew which way to twist caps before there were clocks?  .

And now - something of my dangerous half-knowledge: ;D ;D ;D ;D

According to Sennelier's advertisment (spelled correctly ?)  there were first the clocks ;)

Paints in tubes were invented only in second half of 19th century.

So - every painter, who owned a clock, had this knowledge when buying his first tube of paint.

Hope this helps.

Thanks for your thoughtful responses. Unfortunately, I became confused and ended up biting off the bottom of the tube. Now, I have easy access to my paint. Thanks awfully for the advice.

Can someone tell me how to open a tube of oil paint?   Does the cap twist to the right or to the left??
