cheat and reusable paint palettes
Posted by Putsie on Tuesday, November 21, 2017 7:22 PM

Hi folks,

For a long time I have used the plastic top from a large raisen container as a paint palette.  It has a lip around the edge to keep paint from running.  Its easy to clean.  Large enough to mix paint in one corner with water pr thinner in the other.  The lid from a can of tennis balls is smaller. but works the same.

I find these days that I get a lot of junk mail in the form of single cards of cardboard with a plastic coating, that makes a good pallete for dry brushing and for CA glues.  Also, I get flooded with credit card adds that include a mock credit card.  These are great as pallettes too.

Yeah, I get a ton of credit card offers.  Never thought of using the fake cards this way.  Thanks Don!

I do, however, hoard bottle caps.  They are great for holding a small amount of paint when hand brushing or small amounts of CA.  I also hoard wine foil and those little coffee creamer cups.  The creamer cups are great for mixing up paints for the airbrush.

Dwayne or Dman or just D.  All comments are welcome on my builds.

All of the above, plus:

plastic take-away containers,

35mm film containers & lids,

& for small amounts I cover a 6-dimple plastic paint pallette with alu foil & bin it when done.
