I don’t know how you clean your pallet but when I started painting I didn’t know the best way to clean my paint pallet!
How NOT to clean your pallet
Wiping all that unused paint up with a rag was a mess. And if the paint had dried up that was not even possible. Washing acrylic paint off the pallet and down the drain will send it all off into the streams- not environmentally responsible, not to mention that it WILL eventually clog up your drains. Another reason why a large tempered glass sheet is the very best pallet!
Best way to clean your pallet
Click the short video below or read on:
Let the paint sit on the pallet when you are done painting for the day – acrylic paint dries very quickly so just let it sit for about 30 minutes or so. A quick spritz with your water spray bottle on the dried-up paint and not even a minute later it will start separating from the glass and be ready to scrape off with a scraper and wipe clean with a rag or a paper towel. The scrapers can be bought in the pet department- the cheap aquarium blade scrapers work fine.
This is BOTH environmentally safe and fast.
