Not Your Mother’s Palette

by Judy on August 6, 2013

It’s rare for me to use things for their intended purpose.  By nature, I look at things with unorthodox views.

A Little Dab Will Do

Why not use what’s dried in the watercolor tube?  It may not be much but in today’s economy, artist’s paints are too precious to waste.  I simply cut the bottom out of the tube, and hot glue the tube upside down on top of a lid discarded from old meds or jars.  Then I mix a few drops of Gum Arabic and water to the paint in the tube.

After attaching a few tubes to the lid, I set the tubes inside glass containers with a screw top lid.  Mine came from the Container Store, like so many things I use.
