I love seeing your many pallets!! This was great! :):)
Great ideas! Thanks!
Great video, Kate! The coffee made it even better--now I'm inspired to muddle around with little metal boxes over my next cup of coffee.
Nice video, goofs and all. You give me some very good ideas and now I am itching to put them into practice.Thanks a bunch,xoxo
Thanks for the very informative video on altering palettes. What adhesive works best to hold the half pans and full pans into the bottom of the metal and/or plastic palettes? The blue tack is such a good idea to hold the water container. I assume you can get that at an art store?
Thanks, all! Maria, I couldn't believe I did that! Oh well...Kay, I wish I'd said that! I use good old rubber cement to hold the pans in place...it's light weight, and if I want to change out a pan it's a simple matter to remove one, put a dot of cement on a new one and drop it in. You can get blue tack in art supply stores as well as hardware stores and many discount stores. A package will last forever! (Some people use it to attach their paint pans, but it would add too much weight, for me.)
I love taking a peek over your shoulder at your different watercolor boxes! I like the blue tack suggestion as well - especially after balancing everything on my knee last time I painted outside. The video was awesome - goofs and all!
Thanks, Elizabeth! Mine are certainly human, aren't they! Liz Steel was the one who told me about blue tack for that, I think--thanks, Liz!
Yet another informative video Kate. I love your trick of using the wax paper to draw on for a resist. I'm going to try that for sure. Thanks!
God bless you for being so real :) Great video, Kate!
thank you, I just love your little videos!
I wonder if it´s possible to change watercolors that has dried in other jars- big lumps... And somehow transfer them over to smaller plates... I do want to make those watercolor-boxes to be able to bring with me too!!Please advice since it´s so expencive to buy all new Winsor & Newtons..,Thank You in advance, Tina/Stockholminfo@tisdagarmedtina.se
Pam, it's entirely too much work to be phony! And thanks, all, glad you like!Tina, I'd spray down your lumps of paint with clear water and then cover with a damp paper towel for a day or so. That should soften them enough to move from one box to another. You're right, I wouldn't want to waste them either!
What a great video Kate! You're so inspiring. And you have some really great things in miniature in those boxes. I especially love the tac to hold down the water jar and the tiny, weeny ink pen. As always, thanks for posting! :-)
Cathy~ I have had several of your books in my studio library for a long time. I just discovered this blog and really enjoyed your video about making watercolor kits. I also love little boxes, so I'm sure I have some hiding around here that would make great travel kits! Thanks for sharing!http://faypaints.blogspot.com/
So glad you both enjoyed it! Fay, it's really fun to make your own custom box...even though I love some of my old ones, mostly Winsor & Newton, but one little Kremer and one Schmincke...
Great video on travel paint sets Kate! I loved seeing all your different ideas. I learned a few new tips too!
Thank you, Richard! I'm just getting geared up to do a new post with a thanks to YOU, on the palette cups. Work great!
We'd love your feedback...please share your thoughts!
