Favorite Things: Watercolor Palette


Yes. That is what you think it is.

When I was in high school my favorite art teacher taught me that I could store my watercolors in a styrofoam egg carton. My particular set of watercolors had 18 colors, so this was the perfect use for the would-be piece of trash. Now that I think about it, this egg carton-turned-watercolor-palette is 10 years old! It has certainly seen better days, but it works just fine. I use it every time I work on a watercolor project. Although I've added a modern plastic palette to the mix, this one gets the job done and travels well.

10 Years old? Seriously that's dedication! That egg carton has seen some miles!

I'm so glad you posted this. I was saving up some egg cartons for this purpose because I remember Rice always had us use them. When you posted this I realized... I'm an idiot. I was saving cardboard cartons. Not a great idea for WATERcolors...
