New Wet Palette

Many of those of you who read the post about the painting workshop last week were very excited about the wet palette discovery. Today I have made another step forward and have built a more solid model, abandoning the previous one

You only need this two pieces:

Piece number one (white plastic box) is from some female underwear that one of the two ladies at home (I don't remeber who...) bought during the recent summer sales and (rightly) thought to be potentially useful para los muñequitos de papá (dad's little models).

Piece number two is a pack of cleaning cloths (bayetas para los españoles) bought at a discount supermarket (DIA para los españoles...) costing 60 cent of euro for a pack of six.

Open the plastic box, cut one cleaning cloth to size, put inside, add water, cut some greaseproof paper (thanks cassegw for providing the English equivalent term to our "oven paper") and... Tcha-chan!!

The box lid can be closed after use and keep the remaining paint in fresh condition for at least a couple of days (tested between Friday and Sunday)

Easy, isn't it? So, now take your significant other on shopping next weekend and good luck with the chase


  1. Great post. I made a similar DIY wet palette last year and it completely changed the way I paint. Can't imagine going back to the old dinner plate I used to use!

  2. Greate tutorial!!!
