One of those mysterious but creative gifts we got at Xmas in the Sixties was poster paint.
I've absolutely no idea what it was.
Was it really paint for posters?
I think they came in plastic pots with lids. For some reason I'm seeing the brushes already stuck in the lids, impaled through a hole! Can that be right?
The plastic lids I seem to recall had curled-in holes in the middle for the brush. Maybe these were non-drip in some unfathomable way.
What did we paint on? poster sized paper?
All in all poster paints remain a mystery.
