Keep your palette wet!

Hi all,

I suspect some of you already know about this but many of you wont. It's an arty-farty trick I use to keep my paint from drying on the palette. It allows me a few days to paint with the same mix as I'm rather slow these days........ It's also kinder on the brushes.

They're easy enough to make - see the reference below. I use 2 sheets of greaseproof paper (rather than one), placed on top of wet kitchen paper in a plastic seallable tub. You'll see why you need to use a double layer of gpp after a day or so if you use just one ;)

Commercial ones are available too:
