Painting the way

After a crazy month of classes and holidays it feels so good to be painting again! I just finished setting up and refound a closed pallete of paint I used for the painting in the right corner of the photo over a month ago (full size coming when posted to Etsy!) Naturally, I expected the paint to be dry as the Sahara Desert but to my surprise it was fresh as the day I first used it!

Plastic take out containers make the best paint palettes.

The containers I use are small plastic take out containers from a Chinese food joint I used to frequent. I saved them because the clear snap on lids made them the perfect way to preserve mixed paint for a day or two without putting them in special containers. As it turns out, it can keep paint fresh for as long as a month!
