One of the neatest things that has been helping my painting of late is the use of a wet pallete. I first encountered a wet pallet a few months ago at Forbes Hobbies when I was painting with the guys. All of them had the Wet Palette by Privateer Press and mentioned that I should get one because of how much it helps their painting. Retailing for around $20, I wasn’t ready to take the plung. I would rather spend my money on miniatures, so I went about the Internet to figure out how to make my own for much cheaper.
I came across a video by Atom Smasher of Tabletop Minions
detailing exactly how to make a wet palette from of Dollar Store parts While expressing his love for the item. I am extremely happy with the one I built after watching this video because it seriously extends the life of my paints and helps my paints to flow better as I paint my models.
I am sure that the Privateer Press Wet Palette is better than this one, but when budget is an issue, this is a great solution.
For anyone that has not tried a Wet Palette yet for miniature painting, give it a try. I am extremely pleased with mine and find it helpful in preserving my mixed colours, in making the paint flow better and in saving me money. Total cost of this project… $2.
