A wet palette is excellent for painting because it allows you to thin paints and keep those consistencies wet for a lengthened period of time, I had foundation paint on saturday, brought my model home and finished him on monday with the same paint left on my palette, but ive had paint last up to a week in it
You need the following:
-absorbant paper towel
First apply several layers of paper towel to the bottom, cut and shape as necessary, adding thickness holds more water and prevents the shape of the container from forcing water onto your palette( in some cases like mine the sides are sloped and bottom grooved and if the towel isnt high enough the water flows onto the palette which=bad)
add water to saturate the paper towel, you can have some water sitting on top and around but not too much
add a layer of parchment paper to the top, press it down, wait, an the edges will curl, press them down again smile.gif (as you can see mines well used already)
and thats it.
