Something I really enjoy doing is taking the time to get my paint well-mixed. Yes, I have said before that it is a rather zen-like occupation. But, let me take a moment and share that the best way I have found to add water to paint in the wells on my palette. It is by using this: A condiment bottle. Yep, spend a whole whopping 99 cents and purchase one of these see-through bottles. Fill it with distilled water and voila! - the best money you will spend on supplies for the foreseeable future. Let me share that many years ago I started with a spray bottle. My own experience is that it was messy and inconsistent...not enough control, therefore I was not satisfied. I moved on to a small squeeze bottle that I found at a local craft store. Much better, but the size was too small. It only held enough fluid to go around the wells one time before I had to refill it. So one summer I was standing in the check out line at the grocery store and noticed a see-through condiment bottle. Not red, not yellow, but clear. It is perfection. I hope you will give it a try and you find it enjoyable too. Now go mix up some color. Back to my brushes.
