I have the right cups and the right Lacquer thinner for my plastisol now I need the right container to put it in. Will the thinner eat through the acrylic lid on this?

I can't find one of these made of glass. Or should I use an new empty paint can? I'd rather have 2 thinner containers one white, one clear and the thinner container would require less thinner.

I have one around the man-cave somewhere, that I could photo for you, but the short answer is "YES". It doesn't even have to be spilled or splashed on it... the vapors do the job in less than six weeks.

I thought it would turn it milky but wasn't sure if it would soften and melt from just the fumes. They also had a ceramic container with a silicone seal similar in design to the one pictured. Would the silicone seal melt also?
