Color Mixing in Acrylic

butcher's palette sealed tray palette

Mixing Palettes

Any smooth surface can work as a mixing palette. Art supply retailers offer plastic, ceramic, glass, plexiglass, acrylic, and even disposable paper palettes. Choose what works best for you. Butcher’s tray has a white enameled surface and to clean it, simply fill it with hot water and, after a few minutes, rub off the old paint.

Some artists use “stay wet” palettes, which are sealed trays that contain a wet sponge. This keeps acrylic paints moist and extends their workability. This is ideal for artists who work in fine detail or with liquid (fluid) acrylics. To keep the palette colors moist and active in the butcher’s tray, simply use a spray bottle of filtered water to periodically mist the palette surface very lightly; a little practice will lead you to just the right amount of spritzing for your blending style.


About the Author:

David Lloyd Glover was trained as an artist starting at the Victoria School of Fine Art while still in elementary school. David began working as a full-time editorial illustrator after high school and was mentored by the noted Canadian artist and cartoonist, Sid Barron. David had six illustrations published weekly by a major daily newspaper for five years. He then turned his illustration skills and discipline to a successful career in the graphic arts and advertising industry, gradually shifting to exclusively producing gallery artwork. For the past 28 years, David has been a full-time fine artist creating original works in watercolor, oil, and acrylic for galleries and fine-art publishers internationally. His subject matter is wide ranging, and his techniques are equally as varied. David paints in series that share a similar theme—from mountain landscapes and seascapes to still lifes and gardens of the United Kingdom. David also finds himself painting scenes of Japan, the missions of California, and country life in Tuscany. It all depends on where his interest has directed his artistic attention.
