Reply To: DIY Travel Palettes

Sandra Strait

My studio is the living room in front of the TV set, lol.  Not sure I’d actually go sit in a studio, but it would be nice to have a better place to store things.  I’m hoping to get some of the new Nova series from Stillman & Birn, but haven’t heard from Michael yet.  I was just accepted by Zebra pens as a ‘Zensations Ambassador’ so I should be getting something from them soon.  Sometimes, it’s almost too much to keep up with.  I love it!

When I think I’m going to be mixing a lot of paint, I have some ice trays with lids, and I use one of those for my palette.  They don’t completely seal between compartments so they aren’t good for travel.   Or I use this homemade palette that I created from a plastic brush holder.  I bought some porcelain mini-ramekins and sealed them in with resin (I was on a design team for a Amazing Casting resin, so I kept coming up with ways to use it with my other supplies, lol).  It’s another palette where I don’t store paint, I just use it for special projects where I know I’ll be mixing lots of specific colors.
