Re: Using Masterson's Stay-Wet Palette with WMOs
I don't really like my Masterson Palette that much. It is difficult to seal, large and cumbersome, and doesn't preserve the paint for very long. Also, paint that has been thinned out on my palette still dries up very fast.
After fooling around a lot, I settled on a version of the method David Gray uses. I have a smaller, shallow plastic food container with a very air- tight but easy to remove cover. I cut a board the same size as the bottom, covered it with plastic (I guess you could use a piece of glass or heavy cardboard) and laid it inside the box. The paint left on my palette after a painting session that is still in a large glob, I simply lift off with a palette knife and transfer it into my little sealed box. Then I clean off my palette (because I like things tidy.) When I'm ready for my next session, I open my sealed box and transfer the paint onto my clean palette.
Even though this involves the extra step of transferring paint, I greatly prefer it to wrestling with the cumbersome Masterson's.
