How to Set Up a Watercolor Palette
True life: I set up this watercolor palette simply because I love rainbow color-coded things. Yeah. I'm that person.
But really, I had a new set of watercolors in tubes I had been wanting to try out
and knew that you would love to know how to set them up in a palette too.
I chose to organize the paints in a palette because I prefer to work with watercolors once they have dried, not wet. Like I said in the video, the paints I chose are not the highest quality, but I ended up a loving a lot of the color (the red in particular) so this palette is still part of my arsenal of painting supplies.
Watch the video below to learn what palette I recommend, the colors used, and my plans for this set!
