  1. I'm getting a new wet palette soon and I have been struggling to find pennies old enough to contain enough copper to help with the weirdness that my wet palette gets over time. To be clear I want to put some copper under the sponge to do this I'm just not sure what I'm looking for. My big question is should I be looking for copper wire? If so, what gauge(s)? Also, would a copper mesh like the one seen below work just as well if not better?

  3. How do I prevent this curling? I tried letting it sit then flipped it over then it curled the other way. Currently weighting the corners with pennies but it's not working well.
  4. so i switched to a homemade wet palette recently. it cost me $5, sets up in 3 minutes, cleans up in 1 minute, holds about 20 different paints for 4+ hours, speeds up my painting by 100% at least, and lets me spend most of my time painting, which i like, instead of mixing and remixing paint, which i don't. it's a tray, a paper towel folded in half, and some parchment paper with the sides folded under. add water. why isn't this virtually mandatory? seems like wet palette discussion comes around to personal taste, or climate, or something else, but it changed my life, damnit. is there actually a downside that i haven't found yet? it's easier to clean and use than my dry palette, by a mile.
  5. Forgive me if any of these questions are prominently answered somewhere. I've been reading through a lot of materials here on the site and forums and learned a lot, but a few things I still didn't find answers on. What is liner? I've seen several paints called liner but I have no idea what that means or how it's different from the other paints. I understand washes and drybrushing, what they're good for and how to do them, but can somebody explain glazing to me? What should I be looking for in a glaze, and when should I use one? How should I use one? When would one use an MSP HD paint instead of a regular MSP paint, and vice versa? I've seen a lot of people extolling the use of wet palettes, and I've seen discussion on how to make one, but what exactly are they good for? Is there more to it than simply keeping paint from drying out on your palette? Does it water down the paint? What, if any, effects does it have on mixing, exactly? Do you still need another palette alongside it for certain things? I also have a few more general questions that have no correct answer, but I'm kinda curious to get a few responses/opinions on, as somebody new to this hobby. When you're doing a mini, how long do you typically paint for, not including drying time? What do you consider speed painting? When I see these incredible professional paint jobs, how long did those take to paint? How quickly do you go through paint bottles? Does it make sense to get an extra bottle of one's most commonly-used paints, or do those bottles last a long time? Do you personally use a sealer? Have you ever regretted not doing so? What are your ten most essential paints, the ones you personally use all the time for whatever reason? What painter do you think I absolutely must start being a fan of? What painter have you learned the most from since you started this hobby? And, what the heck, tell me what your favorite Reaper mini of all time is. Has to be one you've actually painted. I think my favorite is 77021 Lindir, Elf Archer. I butchered the face, but it's a fantastic mini and I learned a lot from painting him when I was just starting out.
  6. Hey folks! I have just started using a wet palette in my painting, and I am sure that I am doing almost everything wrong. I am at least getting the colors I want blended from it, so that much at least is good. The container is a Tupperware deli meat container, I am using a piece of foam instead of paper towels, as recomended by Massive Voodoo, with baker's parchment. I seem to be using to much paint and thinner, so that I am only getting space for a few colors at a time. I sometimes feel that palette painting is like mixing Green Stuff, I always make too much... Pics: Pics of other palettes I have seen, people have 10-20 colors... Looking for advise please... Thanks! 8) George
  7. Costco has good white baker's parchment paper which works very well in wet palettes. I use it under my painting surfaces, too, and since epoxy peels right off it, I use it under gluing. Unfortunately, as I discovered last spring when I went to replenish my supply, Costco only carries it during the holiday baking season. That season must have just started, because they seem to have it once again.
  8. ... I'm not going back, Jim. ... Did a painting and assembly session with my youngest this afternoon. Decided what the heck, I had the supplies around, so instead of my usual foil-on-a-paper-plate palette, I layered a folded wet paper towel and a piece of baker's parchment paper on top of the foil. A homemade wet palette in other words. Ohhhhh man, what a difference! Aside from getting used to the wet paint pulling together (interesting, and clearly shows you how much paint you have left), and watching out for wet colors mixing, this is infinitely better than my creaky, wasteful old method. I may never go back. I am grateful to all the people who have developed so many ways to do this stuff. I doubt I would have thought of wet palettes on my own. ... And yes, I do know Spock never actually says that in "This Side of Paradise."
