Cut into small slices and use in another dish! Empty can (green peas) with two paint brushes in water to keep them from drying out. Both green. Couldn't find the first paint brush which had been used a couple of weeks ago so I figured I'd thrown it away. Took a new one to paint the door to my new goat fence and found the first one when looking for an empty can to put the new used brush in to save it to use with the second layer of paint.
