shelf life of paints

I bought some life tone paints about 4 years ago. Each year I use a little, but there is still a lot left. I am concerned that I should buy some newer paint this year for my taxidermy projects. Or should these older paints still work?

Your paints ate fine. I have paint that ate nearly 10 years old. Stir them up and if need be strain out any clumps that did not redistribute in the solution.
