Many fellow painters, whether professionally or as an active amateur artists know the problem. It has just not feel like, no time-or both-in order to treat you just started an oil painting on. Since I often-especially in the summer, when I want to be out of the room, but at sea, the mishap happened, while trying to continue the initiated daub, some total heap of dried paint on the palette may be in larger quantities mind led, that I have been waiting a little too long. And the brush that was not washed out and the hasty departure of the cool water is also over. After several of these events, I asked myself what could I use as an alternative. Now I guess I have to brush often very large areas, the Abdeckdeckel of 0.5 l yogurt cups, which I, as I very much like Eat yogurt, collected in large quantities.
Per color (eg yellow-ocher, etc.) I record a lid and mix the grade required me to this small amount of ink in the desired tone. This is just for flowers or leaves paintings very practical, because I will not mix an orange, but many varieties of this color in very small quantities and can use. Moreover, such a cover is light, one gets for hours painting, no tennis elbow by a heavy pallet. By the profile edge, the lid deforms also not so easy. An illustration of this: And should now be the case that one intends suddenly something else: not a problem, the lids are stacked and sealed by the profile edge quite well, So the color holds longer in serviceable condition. Den / I wrap the brush in the while chocolate-silver paper, which keeps them moist and consumption of brush cleaner is reduced significantly. With acrylic paint that goes, although it is, but the usefulness naturally much shorter, even if you are stacking in each lid a few drops of water. When painting backgrounds, large expanses of water, etc. I use a smaller range of homemade Plexiglas (of course), which, when dried, is simply removed with the blade.
