30-in-30, Day 4…Palette Cleaner

paint palette
I keep my paint in a tightly covered plastic box. I mix on a glass palette, which is easy to clean.

No painting happened today, but something just as important: I cleaned and refilled my palette. Mixing color becomes a little annoying when the paint in my palette is starting to dry out. Cleaning and refilling takes me a couple of hours because I mix up each color with a little retardant to keep it softer longer. If I’m painting regularly, I won’t have to do it again for a month or more. I don’t know what other people do, but this works pretty well for me.
