Use Waxed Boxes for Paint Palettes

When working with acrylics, you can use a (washed) waxed box such as the ones frozen foods come in, as a palette. I have used cut down plastic 2 liter milk containers for palettes as well. No cost, no cleanup.

That is a super idea! I save lids from milk jugs, soda bottles, butter, sour cream, etc. because I have an in home daycare and they are just the perfect size to put a dab of paint in for the toddlers and practically no clean up!
