Handmade Watercolor Palette
Dollar store finds
So I was on Amazon looking for the perfect watercolor palette. I saw this cute compact flowery one that was just so simple and, well, perfect. So I ordered and forgot to even check if it was prime or not…well 30 days later I finally get it. And believe it or not it was only 7 inches long, that’s another thing I forgot to check..Lol. In the meantime though, I decided to make my own…and this magnificent idea came to me while I was at the dollar store.
I got this airtight container and velcroed 40 mini containers to the base
Each one has their own lid and then the container lid adds a bit more airtight conditions. That is not as important for watercolors, but it will be for my fluid/high flow acrylics, which Ill be making next.
These are some of my new tube watercolor mixed with some of the older cake style, I just love the tube ones. These are Winsor and Newton professional watercolors, and they are affordable and saturated.!
So there is my new palette for home, and it only cost me $6..Wooowzer..!! and now Ill just use the mini for travel..I guess it all worked out:)
