Palettes

Ceramic palettes are probably the best, as they tend to stain less than their plastic counterparts. I use a palette with a large mixing area and plenty of compartments for my paints. I always place my colors in the same compartments, so I instinctively know where each color is almost without looking. As you become more experienced you will begin to value any technique that helps you to work quickly when you need to. If you do decide on a plastic palette and buy a brand new one you may find that its super-shiny surface will cause the paint to separate. This is known as ‘beading’. A tip is to put the palette through a dishwasher before you use it. This will take the edge off the surface, allowing it to accept the paint without encountering this problem.
