Friday Tip

A quick but handy tip for today. Foil (a nice thick brand) makes a great paint palette. There is no need to clean up, and you don't need specialized palette paper. You can even use a brush handle to write identification for the color mix on the foil in case you have multiple projects in progress. I like to roll out as much as I think I'll need lengthwise for the project. Then, I fold the foil in half along the long side to make it sturdier. Then it's just a matter of mixing the paint! When in between uses fold the foil over once again to make a "paint sandwich". Using this method, it will keep for a week or more, depending on drier usage.
