Just thought I'd share this gem for people who are fed up of:
1. Paint drying up
2. Paint going on to thickly
3. loosing the point on their brush
*4. Having little control over the amount of paint on the brush
USE A WET PALETTE!
Seriously I'd heard of them before but just dismissed them, I made one today and I've just painted a marine, my god how much easier was that!!!
To make a wet palette you need a shallow plastic container (I used the rectangular box you get those dots of static GW grass in), then you put about 10 sheets of bog roll in (They fit perfectly in the box I used, otherwise you may have to cut to size), then add enough water so the roll is all wet, but it's not dripping everywhere. Then lay a perfectly fiting piece of grease proof/baking paper (the stuff your girlfriend bakes with *but not the recycled brown stuff, it's too low density*) over the top of the wet bog roll and voila!
