Understanding what options there are to slow the drying of acrylics on your palette.

Updated over a week ago

Most acrylic painters develop a way of working that includes stopping every 5 or 10 minutes to mist the palette with a spray bottle of water. You can also use a stay-wet palette which has a wet sponge under a membrane of paper that keeps the paints moist from beneath. And you can save your paints for the next day if you use an acrylic palette with a lid.
