A wooden palette is the most traditional type of palette, as used by many famous artists throughout history and featured in imagery of practising iconic artists. Due to their flat surface, wooden palettes are best suited to heavier bodied colour such as acrylic and oil paint. Disposable paper pads are another solution for those mixing en plein air or using varying colour palettes, as you tear off the page and dispose of it once your painting has completed or if your paint has dried - making them ideal for use with acrylic paint.
