Acrylic Painting Tips -- Cleaning a Palette

A helpful acrylic painting tip from a fellow artist.


To get dried acrylic paint off a palette, soak it in fabric softener and it will come out like magic. It also works to clean stiffen paint brushes like new.
Tip from: Gerald Dextraze.

If you're using a hard plastic, tile, or glass palette try spraying it with glass cleaner; in five minutes any dried paint should wipe off easily.
Tip from: Aaron Boyd
