Wet Palette

On Timelines there was some interest in Wet Palettes.  I use one, and it is a neat way to keep your color wet and ready to use.  It is basically a plastic box with a lid that snaps on.  Inside is a thin sponge and a piece of plain white paper.
The paper is like cooking parchment paper.  It does not fall apart when wet, or  shed fibers.  One thing I learned is you can keep the sponge pretty wet.  The wetter the better.  Once I am done with the colors or they dry just a bit, I toss the paper and put in a new one.  Wring out the sponge, soak up some new water and you're ready to go.

Brit Tanker









I received the Young Miniatures Brit Tanker yesterday- so I set about cleaning the casting and priming the bust up. Here is a little SBS on the face- The photos make this look rough. But as I work thru the shadows and highlights, it will all come together.
