PLEASE tell me someone else has had this problem. When I store my Wilton paste colors hanging by the lids in the Wilton toolbox, they somehow seem to leak out the top. I am so perplex by this and tired of cleaning up the mess. Anyone have a suggestion as to why, how, or do I need to seek a different kinda of professional help. LOL ( No they are not being tilted, lids are tight, and nothing spilled on them. ) Yikes.

Mine were doing that too. I tried everything. I had to quit storing them in the toolbox and started switching to the Americolors in the flip top bottles just to avoid mystery screw on lid leakage.

Yep...annoying. That is why I am slowly switching to Americolor too. They are much cleaner to use and actually brighter and better colors.

Wow - never had that problem. Could it at all be temperature related or something? I don't store them hanging by their lids - just in a tupperware box - but I wouldn't think that would matter.

Thanks so much. Canceling my therapist appointment and switching to American.

Yes, Wilton colors have always done this. Switch to Americolor and you'll never have leaking colors again!
