Don’t waste time looking for the right pallet like I did!
After trying many different types of paint pallets, including paper plates, plastic pallets, wooden ditto; even disposable “paper pallet sheets’ I finally have the very best pallet.
Tips from a Pro!
A long time ago I took an art class in my local community college where the teacher told us to make this- it is the very best pallet EVER! It is basically a piece of glass with a white sheet of paper duct taped to the edges. The white paper gives beautiful clarity and ‘trueness’ to the paint colors. It also protects the edges from chipping and your fingers from getting cut.
And so I have kept this wonderful large sheet of tempered auto glass with me for years. I did manage to finally scrape the first one so badly I decided to replace it after about ten years.
Where to find the best pallet?
And both times when I went to auto-glass repair shops for a piece of scrap glass they wouldn’t even hear of charging for it. That was very sweet of them! There really are so many kind people in the world.
