Portable water color containers
(HLR, TX, USA)
Paint palette alternative
Instead of using a large painting palette to put the paints on, you can put paints into medicine containers that are available in drug stores. (see photo).
The paints are easy to travel with since they don't take up much space and you can snap the lid down and and go (although you might want to place all the tray's into a plastic bag which could be sealed to prevent any paint from leaking out). You can add the color and brand info to the lid of the container and the containers are not expensive!
A former art teacher shared this idea with me and I apologize because I can't recall her name to give her credit for her wonderful idea.
