Hi all,
 I have at last taken the plunge (no pun intended) and made myself a wet pallet to paint with . I normally use a ceramic tile but under the lights the paint drys out to quick so i thought what the heck lets give it a try. I had looked to see how much to buy one but after surfing the net i thought like a lot of other people there was nothing to making one.
What you will need:
  1. cleaning sponges
  2. plastic container
  3. baking paper
  4. water
The plastic container shouldn't be to deep that it would impede your paint mixing and the sponges could be any type maybe even out of packing from a figure box, the water could be tap but maybe use distilled or bottled if your wallet can run to it (less impurities than tap water).
  Fill the container with enough water that when you press a finger on the sponger the water pools around it (mine started at 5mm deep i then added a little more until i reached the desired amount). Cut your baking paper to fit the container the press the paper firmly on the sponge then turn it over and place it back on the sponge.
  There you have it one wet pallet you should be able to keep paint mixed on the pallet days or even weeks . And you mix your paint as you would with any other pallet. When you return to your paint you may find it has separated just give it a mix and you should be good to go !
As i said i took a look at lots of peoples ideas on the net so a big thank you and if this how to is not up to scratch have a surf there are plenty of people you can explain better than me.
  That's all folks until next time stay safe.
       Regards Furphy.
