Acrylic paint - palette clean up

Once Acrylic paint has dried on your palette, it can be very difficult to remove.   That's why I use a PLASTIC disposable plate, with a shiny surface for mixing my acrylics....

~ you see it has a shiny surface ~


Then it ends up looking like this after I've been adding paint...



When you have finished using the paint,
and it has dried on completely,
that's when it is the easiest to remove.

Just
PEEL IT OFF.




 I just use a damp cloth 
to clean up any tiny bits left behind.
