What kind of paint palette is best?
This depends on what kind of mixing you're going to be doing. If you want to mix watercolours or acrylics, you'll want to have deep wells. If you're trying to mix thick oil paints a large, flat surface like glass or wood will help. If you need to move around a lot, an art palette you can hold easily in your hand is what you're after.
Why do artists use palettes?
They’re a great way to keep all the paints you’re using handy. You'll find it difficult to paint if you've got your colours still in their little tubes! Art palettes also give you an opportunity to mix up the colours you want if you don't have the exact one you need ready to go. An essential part of any painting experience!
What is paint palette paper?
It is a disposable piece of smooth, coated paper that an artist can place on their wooden palette so they have somewhere to mix their paints, but keep their palettes clean. Some palette papers come in pads that have built in finger holes, so you can use the pad as the palette itself and then put the used sheet in the bin!
What is the best watercolour palette?
A good watercolour palette should have plenty of space for mixing and wells for keeping the colours in place! You may also want to opt for a paint palette that ensures your paints don't dry out or spill in transport.
