I’ve said the phrase “buy the best you can afford” a few times in regards to materials and tools like paint, paper and paint brushes. Today is different. Today I’m writing about palettes and containers for cleaning brushes. Some artists have particular palette needs for the type of painting they do but if you’re just building a personal creative art supplies kit you can use any number of things that will rinse and mix your art materials. Buy some durable plates and cups to add to your art kit.
