Notes from the Deckle Edge
For the first time in three years I cleaned out my palette. There was some paint in there that was so old it would not reconstitute after sitting in water. I have heard two different tales about filling your wells and working from that or always putting out fresh paint. The first story is that tube paints are actually made to fill pans and are supposed to dry out and then reconstitute. The second story is that pans are made with a different formula. I don't know what the accurate tale is today. It might be both, but it doesn't matter. I do what works for me. I like filling my wells and letting them dry out then reconstituting. For my sketchbook and miniatures I make my own pans for a portable palette. I purchased the empty pans from Kremer and got a wonderful portable palette there as well. Love it! But do what works for you. Back to my brushes.
