Top Tip- Paint containers/palettes
When you finish a box of chocolates don’t throw away the plastic tray inside the box where the chocolates fit.
Keep it, as the little compartments make ideal mini paint pots for mixing your colours.
You can put a drop of paint in each one and mix the paint inside them without the colours running into each other.
When you need a break, spray the whole thing lightly with a water sprayer, and cover the top of the tray with cling film or a plastic bag. The paint will stay wet while you have your cup of tea.
When you’ve finished your painting, throw the whole thing away.
I hate cleaning up bit, so this is great for me.
You can of course just wash the whole thing out, ready and clean to use for a paint palette the next time.
