I like to make up the little pressed flowers adm accents that can be painted and air brushed as I go. I was storing them in the little reusebale plastic containers but found after a few months that they do not smell so good.

Any suggestions.

I store mine in small boxes- cardboard allows air inside, so the GP stays dry with no molding. I mark the end of the box with a note of what's inside.

I do the same thing. I layer them with several paper towels between the layers.
