Disposable Paint Palettes from Household Items

A quick option for disposable paint palettes is most likely right in your kitchen! This option is perfect for acrylic painting. Try using household aluminum foil wrapped on a tray or plate next time you paint. When you are ready for cleanup, simply discard the used foil and voilá! This saves time on cleanup and cuts down on washing paint in the sink. Another great resource is to use an old magazine cover. The glossy layer on the pages won't absorb the paint, and when you are done with painting for the day you can let it dry, turn it over and use the other side.
