Hi friends! I learned a great tip from my friend Marty Owens about metal watercolor palettes ta hold half-pans. My new Prima watercolor were sliding all over the place and I couldn’t figure out why. I though maybe they would just wiggle about until there was enough paint gunk to glue them in place but little did I know I just had them in wrong. Watch the video to learn the correct way to put your watercolor half-pans in the palette so they don’t move:
This tip will work with any of these metal palettes, oh and BTW I went to look up how much the metal palette cost without the paint and it was $27! You can get the set full with prima paints from Hallmark Scrapbook for $21.99! Yep, cheaper than empty and you can always replace your pans with a finer quality paint as you use them up. Mind you these paints are very vibrant and nice but I would still rate them more of a student grade, they are very similar to Koi. They are a good value. That’s it for me, we have new stamp school coming up tomorrow so I hope you stop back by for that and til then happy crafting!
