Home made paint palette

Recommended Posts

When painting with a brush I used to work straight from the jar/bottle but I found this was often a little messy. Recently I purchased some dispensing needles and syringes very cheaply on eBay. These are great of removing paint from a bottle with the minimum amount of mess. They are also great for sucking out all unused paint from the bowl of my single action air brush. I also made up a simple paint palette using bottle tops glued to a piece of wood. I used some new bottle tops left over from by 'brewing' days but I am sure used ones would work just as well. The inside of the lids were lined with plastic so they were easy to clean (I only use acrylics) after use. Combined with the dispensing needles it means I can reduce mess and wastage when completing fiddly jobs with a brush.
