DIY Painting palette

I watched this video of Andrew Tischler on Youtube about studio palette. I think this was brilliant and I keep thinking how can I make a similar one. While I don’t need that big since I have a really tight space. But I do like the glass surface and it can stand by itself.  So I […]
