  7. Just got back from seeing all the demos --- great idea and quite enjoyable. Learned a lot and just loved "watching other artists." thanks for all the work in making this happen, especially during this busy season. All the artists were great.

  8. Do you have to let the water dry off the palette before you can use it again?

  9. Thanks everyone for your comments!

    I had a lot of questions about putting the palette under water. Because it's oil paint, the water doesn't affect it or dilute it, just seals it off from the air, so it doesn't dry out. When I'm ready to paint again, I lift the palette out and tilt it over the tray to let the water run off. If there's a puddle anywhere I blot it with paper towel.
