[open thread]random paint pealed from palettes (pic heavy)

Recommended Posts

It's super satisfying to pull dried paint from a palette, and also super pretty. This thread is for random pics of paint you've pulled off of your palette.

Mine just gets to a point where it loosens (cracks?). It's much drier here at my in laws than my home (ever delaying basement renovations) and they always have heat or ac going. That may be part of it?

I can never peel off my paint in one go like that, maybe I'm not letting it build up thick enough :o

 

Give it a bit of a soak in warm water or Simple Green.

My normal "pallet" is just Yogurt caps.
The first one surprised me a bit when it came off, but it looked cool, so I thought I'd see how long it would take to peel off by painting the date (in reverse) on the cap.
So a little more than 4 years!
Cracks started appearing about 8 months before it came off.

Is it bad that I both replace my wet pallet paper and wash my ceramic well pallet daily?

Only for this specific purpose.

I used to be that way, but this is much prettier.

Lookup Fordite, it is the old enamel car paint that dripped off of vehicle bodies as they were being painted and accumulated into layers that is now being broken up and polished to make jewelry. It looks similar to what you have pictured.

I tend to use white glue - spread it around, let it dry, peel it off, and it takes the paint with it.

 

The Auld Grump - yes, I was one of those kids that would let glue dry on my hand, then peel it off - why do you ask?*

 

* I actually got it from an e-mail, from I-forget-who - it works a treat.

I'm aware of it. It's a good reuse.
