From the computer to the tabletop, this is all about games. Updated each week-end.
The two painting updates posted this week-end both had one new feature – I painted the models with the help of a wet palette.
This is something I have been wanting to test out for a while, and I’m glad I did. For anyone not certain, a wet palette is something you can create using a container, a sponge, and some parchment paper. Or you can simply buy one of the many pre-created ones on the market. I went with the Army Painter version.
After painting a few models, it looks like this.
The paint here is up to two days old and still usable in some places. The green has dried up. My usual palette is the baking paper you can see sticking out from under the wet palette on the right. paint lasts maybe a few minutes there.
This has been a successful test for me. The palette kept my paints usable without causing them to dilute away. Even the contrast paints worked fine. I’m not sure that I will use this for everything, but it’s going to be a feature as I move forward. It’s also great if I get interrupted a short way into a session, I can simply put the lid over the top, confident that the paints can be used when I get back.
A special thanks to everyone who recommended I try one of these out!
