Have you ever looked at your palette after a painting session and drooped your shoulders. Cleaning palettes is never fun.

Well perhaps you do not need to. If you read my post on making a stay wet palette you already have the best solution.

There are other alternatives though.

The good old paper plate. You can buy a pack of 50  300mm oval plates size from eBay for under $15. That's around 29 cents per plate. Use them and bin them when finished. Remember this is for the laz artist not the poor one.

Then there are porcelain (china) plates. These can be picked up from thrift shops for a few cents.

Yep, baking trays. Also something available cheaply from thrift shops. Either get a nonstick one or use kitchen paper as a liner that can be thrown away.

Coming up last is the old frypan. Again a non-stick one is best. These can be bought from Red Dot etc very cheaply too.
