Another small project that I have undertaken recently has been to create a palette similar to that of the New Zealand artist John Crump.
One aspect to his palette that I initially found difficult to emulate, was a receptacle for my liquin medium. There just isn't anyone out there who makes or sells pots that are a decent size and that are bevelled at the top to prevent it for spilling out when you're using it.
By chance, I noticed the inside of a coffee jar lid while I was waiting for the kettle to boil. I thought, 'That might just do the trick!?'. I cut a hole into my palettes, popped it in and it works pretty well for something it was not designed to do!
