I opened the pallet box (which is a product by Masterson) The box is rubberized plastic and seals closed. If you fold paper towels about 2 1/2 inches wide and place them around the sides, wet them and then place your acrylic paints on top, they stay wet. In the center, keep either a wet sponge or wet paper towel and the paints last forever. The center can be used to mix your paints. I used to waste a lot of paint because the acrylics dry so quickly.
So by way of my usual procrastination, I shared with the the wonders of my pallet....
I guess I should start painting. My roadblock this time is what color to paint the clothes on the people, and also to decide what they could be sitting on. Once I pick up the brush, I'll probably be ok.
I'll be using the easel today. I already sprayed the paint in the pallet to soften it more.
